comment Where is core group defined on coreos?
/etc/nsswitch.conf is a symbolic link to /usr/share/baselayout/nsswitch.conf. There's a line in there that reads group: files usrfiles but I don't see where the meaning of usrfiles is defined.

comment Keyboard shortcut for horizontal scrolling
@Ramesh The op there wants to alter the behavior of the scroll wheel on his mouse. I don't want to use the mouse at all, just the keyboard.

comment Where is core group defined on coreos?
Your answer to question 2. "How can I change the uid/gid?" is clear: "don't, just create a new user/group." But you haven't answered question 1. "How does CoreOS get its information about users and groups?" Maybe they should really be two separate questions.

comment Where is core group defined on coreos?
CoreOS really does seem to know more than what's listed in /etc/group as you can see from the output of id. I confirmed that getgrgid(500) returns a pointer to struct describing the core group.

comment xscreensaver and keyboard layouts
You might add that i3lock reset the keyboard layout when the user is entering a password. That "works" iff the password can be entered with the primary layout.

comment What are the (dis)advantages of ext4, ReiserFS, JFS, and XFS?
ext4 does not support dynamic inode allocation. If you expect to create many small files, use JFS or make sure to specify a low bytes-per-inode with mke2fs -i.
