comment MinGW-64 and CompilationTarget -> “C”: can't make library
How to set up MinGW-64 is a good question. But if you want to avoid trouble and have reliably working compilation with minimal fuss, then just install Microsoft's compiler. I recommend this version, which is not the latest, but will only install command line tools and takes a bit less disk space. It works out of the box with Mma. See here.

comment Attempt to Run[“inkskape”] fails
I know for example that when using the front end, Run["python"] exits immediately, probably because there's no stdin. But StartProcess["python"] lets python keep running until it is explicitly shut down. I'm on OS X, so similar to Linux.

comment Attempt to Run[“inkskape”] fails
Sorry, I should have said it clearly that I did not test this. I do not have inkscape installed and I do not use Linux. It is my suspicion that it might work with this new functionality, but I do not know this for certain. I might be wrong.

Try to use convert from ImageMagick or upgrade to version 10 (if your license allows) and try this.

comment Issue with PieChart3D in Version10. Is it Mac specific?
I'm on 10.9.4 too. The last code block evaluates and renders in a second or so. (By "feeling", I didn't measure precisely.) Can you try these Mike? AbsoluteTiming[expr;] and AbsoluteTiming[ToBoxes[expr];]

@nathan Do you realize that network communication fundamentally depends on sending the IP? Please use the chatroom for further comments, especially ranting, as the comment thread is long enough as it is.

comment How to get the new font in Mathematica 10?
@JohnFultz Is there any other way than specifying a non-existent font to use Mathematica Sans on Windows or Linux? On OS X Style[..., FontFamily -> "MathematicaSans"] works well, but on Linux (and maybe Windows) it turns all characters to boxes. Perhaps using this font is not supported yet? (I'm trying to use this font as the default for a while because I'm curious what it's really like to work with a proportional font instead of a monospace one.)
