comment How to print random text in ConTeXt?
@doed: I think that something is broken in your installation. You only need write permissions for TEXMFCACHE. Perhaps you can post a new question and ask why your installation is misbehaving.

The example from your fourth edit works fine for me.

comment Which primitives does ConTeXt rename/move?
I suspect that it was close to the beginning. ConTeXt had \expanded and \unexpanded (which is similar to LaTeX's \protect) much before etex. (I am speaking from memory here, so I might be wrong).

comment Escape a string printed from Lua using ConTeXt
It converts \ to \\ , which I guess is mapped to \crlf.

comment Grid system for slides
To resize images use: \externalfigure[name][width=\layoutcolumnwidth, height=6\lineheight] etc. But keep in mind that this will change the aspect ratio of the image. It is better to specify only the width or the height, and let ConTeXt automatically scale the other dimension to maintain the aspect ratio.

comment Grid system for slides
I placed the "top-left" corner of the slide title is at the line. Placing the baseline of the title to the grid is more tricky. If you want to do that, it is easier to place the content using the section heads. See the details manual for different options on aligning section heads to the grid.

@phg: Clearly, I was mistaken. See my answer for a "proper" solution.

(Untested) context(catcodes.numbers.vrbcatcodes, i_can_be_anything) should also work.

comment How to set maxheight of a combination in ConTeXt?
The reason for height=0.8\textheight messing things up was because one cannot mix options (like 1*4) with assignments (like height=0.8\textheight) in ConTeXt. Using \startcombination[nx=1, ny=4, height=0.8\textheight] should work.

comment Get or change ConTeXt path for components/projects/environment
While compiling from products, another option is to run context --path=.. X. (Depending on your setup, changing the command line call may be preferable to editing a file).

comment Get or change ConTeXt path for components/projects/environment
Another option is to compile the files from the garden directory using context products/X. Note that this will create the auxiliary files in the garden directory.

comment Is there a spell check package for LaTeX?
@Nasser or look at the example on context wiki (linked in the question). Any misspelled word is colored red.
