comment Not enough space in table for fractions
Two suggestions. (1) Why not write 58/197 and so on? (2) All fractions are integral multiples of 1/197, so you could write everything in multiples of 1/197l this would make it easier to compare the probabilities in the same columns.

comment Aligning forest trees and getting the bounding box right
I am not sure about the caption problem. You draw the dashed lines with an overlay/remember picture, so TikZ doesn't use them when it determines the size of the bounding box. I imagine that if the dashed lines become too deep, you'll end up with problems with the caption. If you draw the braces before drawing the dashed lines, you can draw the braces without overlay/remember picture. That should avoid problems with the caption.

I don't have the prooftree package. Have you tried \qedhere just before closing the last displayed equation?

comment Showcase TeX Typography for TUG's Calendar
Looks nice. Is the picture in the public domain? (I'm asking because TUG wouldn't want to be sued...) Could you provide a direct link to the pdf output file please?

comment Showcase TeX Typography for TUG's Calendar
@murena I don't think this will be printed in bulk. TUG has online calendars, which people can download and print themselves.

comment how do I add line numbers to itemize environment?
@kloop You mentioned listing an algorithm, which made me think you wanted to list an algorithm. Perhaps it's better if you provide an example of the output you want.

comment Number of row in a tabular
It seems as if you're trying to reinvent some wheel. Not sure if this helps but the pgfplotstable and the datatool package provide high-level support for database table. Also see this database-related question.

comment sudo does not find tlmgr
It seems the super user (root) doesn't have the installation directory of tlmgr in its PATH. If the OS should be able to find tlmgr for root, then use PATH=${PATH}:<installation directory of tlmgr>. (You may have to add export PATH too.) If I had to do this, I'd put the PATH=... statement in the root's login file, which I suspect is .bashrc in the root's home directory.

comment Table positioning and floating problem
This is not a problem. LaTeX was designed to behave like this. Believe me: your documents will look better if you don't use 'h' and 'H' in the optional table environment argument. IMHO they look even better if you use 'tp' as the optional table environment argument.

comment Best LaTeX editor for LARGE documents
@Caleb Using unix keeps me much more sane than using windows. Furthermore, the fewer windows the better, which is why I only have one terminal and always run vim from the command line.

Use vim and define folds for your sectional units, paragraphs, and environments. See this for a start.
