comment Ubuntu user want to use District Council Uk OS data to print a map!
Tim, have you recently migrated to Ubuntu from Windows? If yes you will have to familiarize yourself with things like PPAs (for the migration link about UbuntuGIS PPA; this will be relatively easier), adding repository URLs to sources file (first method suggested by Mapperz) etc.

comment Add-ons on GRASS (win7)
If you have not done this already, I would suggest you read this tutorial for r.basin. You may have to convert your data to projected coordinates for the module to work.

comment Install the Pgadmin3 shapefile importer plugin on a Mac(10.8)?
I wrote this blog post to suit Ubuntu - staygeo.com/2013/05/enabling-postgis-shapefile-and-dbf.html. I believe the instructions would be similar for Mac. I had to set PGBINDIR environment variable, create symbolic link etc.

comment Why should a user choose to use open source software in their remote sensing research?
I used FOSS software in my academic project two years ago for the reasons outlined above. Above all I did not want to use pirated software! (Universities don't issue free student licenses here). I always feel proud to say my research was accomplished with 100% FOSS4G applications.

comment How can I enable Shapefile GUI Loader in pgadmin3?
I faced the same issue with the plugin on Ubuntu 12.04. Followed similar steps outline above except for different file paths. I had to set PGBINDIR environment variable as well. I have explained the steps I followed in my blog post: staygeo.com/2013/05/enabling-postgis-shapefile-and-dbf.html

comment A machine to measure latitude to 6 decimal places of a degree
Tom, the machine you are referring to is called a GPS. This question is possibly a duplicate here, as there are already questions seeking information about GPS and accuracy - gis.stackexchange.com/questions/43617/…; gis.stackexchange.com/questions/3414/…
