comment How to draw the following picture using tikz?
Show us what you've tried already. This isn't a "please draw this for me for free" website.

comment Why can't TeX Live's size be reduced?
Even at $100 a terabyte, that 4Gb costs you ¢40. You'd probably take at least 1 hour to save ¢20. Multiply by five to estimate the additional costs of backup etc, and you get $1 per hour. That's a lot less than minimum wage.

comment What is the best way to put a long list of words into latex beamer (presentation)
Presumably you want a multi-column list, with automatic column breaks?

comment Is it possible to build a table with strings of dingbats instead of horizontal rules?
Yes, I think that looks ugly enough for what OP is wanting...

comment how to check in latex whether the table of content is empty or not before added to the document
My intuition tells me that you really ought to know/decide whether or not your document should have a TOC. Sorry to be grumpy.

comment How to get sane margin sizes suitable for paperback books using memoir?
Since you're using memoir (jolly good!), you should ignore any advice to use geometry; memoir has excellent built-in facilities to do what you want.

comment Awful ToC layout, while using roman number
@MikeRenfro I was joking (if you can call it that) to make a point -- Roman numerals aren't very user-friendly. Maybe OK for numbering Parts, but only if five or less.

comment Awful ToC layout, while using roman number
Is there any special reason you want to use Roman numbering when mentioning your A9 operating system?

comment How do I extract a month name in datetime2?
@cfr I'm sorry, I don't think I can improve on that too much. I'll update the question to clarify a bit, but I really haven't a clue.

comment Why is Latex giving this odd output?
+1 for reminding us all that "rewrite the sentence" is often a lot simpler, better solution that invoking all sorts of macro ninjutsu.

comment How can I align text between fitted and positioned nodes?
Thanks for that idea, Gonzalo. In my case, I don't specifically align the text vertically. Is the default text anchor different for a non-fitted node? It looks like the text is not actually centred in the fit box.

Sorry, that includes any "printed" empty pages

comment Start Memoir's frontmatter on a verso page
I'm sorry, again, but I think you are asking for something that is logically impossible. The first printed page, however you arrive at it, is always recto,

comment Start Memoir's frontmatter on a verso page
Sorry, I find it a little difficult to understand what page order you're trying to achieve. I would have thought the logical thing to do would be put the \maketitle right after \frontmatter (assuming you want the title page first??? The first page og the book is always (by logic) recto, as it's generally what you see when the book sits on the table.

comment Navigate a TeX code using emacs
@CharlesHolbrow I've updated the answer, but unfortunately haven't been able to find a good replacement for the link. What I did find didn't have the details of the key bindings.

comment As an expert, can you always use TeX for (nearly) any kind of document?
@SeanAllred I'm even later with a reply to your comment! For technical documents, I use memoir with a conventional Part/Chapter/Section... structure. I haven't built a special class (though I know I should), but have a giant preamble that I copy from project to project and then increment as necessary. I know that's horrible, so dont bother telling me... :). I also have a pretty front cover built with xcoffins à la Elementare Typographie. But again, I haven't built a package for it yet.

Thank you; all I can say is "true, but strange". :)

Seems like a curious value for the default? Would anyone know why? cc: @JosephWright

comment How do I edit PDF files produced by LaTeX in Illustrator? Fonts are not found
I agree with @doncherry that this is off-topic. The OP's needs are so grotesque he can't possibly be a TeX user, which I would see as the only possible reason for keeping this question here
