comment Buying a Linux Machine
to be honest, building a machine isnt very difficult and it'll save you money usually. Besides, as a dev you'll likely have pretty specific requirements. I'd say just build it yourself from the various parts. Should take about 45 minutes.

depends on your background. For most (read nearly all) people, a familiar UI aids greatly in the learning process and reduces culture shock.

comment Detach a daemon using sudo?
yup. but you should just launch those as root (usually) anyhow, with su. personally i tend to do sudo bash -l to go root and just launch them from there. Also, why is sudo being in the background an issue anyway ?

comment Detach a daemon using sudo?
thats the default, if i understand you right. sudo will exit when "program" exits. i.e: sudo ls & , sudo will end when the ls ends - usually almost instantly.

comment Detach a daemon using sudo?
sudo is the program you have called, and sudo is calling "program". you have put sudo into the background, so sudo is still running. I think you're believing "program" is using sudo, when in reality its the other way around ?

comment When you type “ls -a”, what is the significance of “.” and “..”?
one exception to this rule is the root dir / where . and .. both point to the current dir.

comment Is ext2 suitable for daily use on a desktop or laptop?
to be honest, i wouldn't like to use a filesystem such as ext2 on a usb drive, as it's very likely to be yanked out while mounted or writing.
