Learnt LaTeX while in placement in my third year in 1999 when my assignment was to work on a massive code but was only given an laptop to do it, so had to find something to do during the long hours the thing took to compile, and solitaire doesn't remain fun for that long. I haven't look back since. Now a researcher at the University of Bristol. All my outputs are in LaTeX from papers to presentations to posters.

comment Is there a disadvantage to using natbib=true with biblatex?
as far as I know, the natbib option with biblatex only provides the commands from natbib, the actual processing is done by biblatex and is not influenced by the option.

comment Serious problems with tabularx table layout
your code doesn't compile for several reasons however you are not saying it doesn't so I am not entirely sure what your problem actually is. for information, with the code provided: you are trying to use tabularx but are loading the tabu package; you are using toprule/(c)midrule/bottomrule without loading the booktabs package.

comment Bundle PDF+LaTeX source and open with Preview
There is a package that was released on ctan last month (embedall) that could provide an acceptable solution to your problem. I haven't tried it myself but was very interested to see it.

comment Table width and Header
Also note that the any text after a % character is considered a comment and not parsed. you should replace the instances of % with the escaped version \%.

comment Dialect of the `[1.]` suffix in `\begin{enumerate}[1.]`?
alternatively you can load the enumitem package and use [label=\arabic*.] instead of [1.]

comment pdflatex without ghostscript to preserve transparency of included pdfs
Well, it may indeed switch transparency on, but it does it in such a way that display gets rather messed up on pages with transparency elements (font become heavier and look not anti aliases. Adding the \pdfpageattr line make the document uniform. I suspect the default is to change the transparency setting on a page to page basis which for some reasons adobe reader cannot render properly. As for the advice to increase the pdf version, I was only doing that to match the highest version of the included elements. The other solution would be in reduce the pdf version of the image at creation.
