comment Ampersand on first or second line?
Note that I, as author of the quoted text, have since amended my answer and actually found a reference that suggests exactly opposite. I do suppose though that in this instance (example given by OP) the choice has to be based on aesthetics, not typography. In the end, this is a design question, not a UX question.

comment iOS - Create Username / Validate? Email?
Stackexchange works by giving concrete answers to questions. It is unclear what exactly you are asking. If you have several questions, it might be better to break them up in single question topics.

comment Line numbers in text editor
@JamesWood a) I think line numbers are very relevant for some use cases where non-programmers use text editors. Referring to line numbers for quotes, errors, paragraph beginnings etc. (also think about Excel, even though not a text editor, its rows start with 1 as well) and b) even programmers learn to count objects, words, paragraphs, and, well, lines, with whole numbers. What would be the benefit of saying "Go check on line 3" and the meaning of it would be to check the 4th line?

comment Line numbers in text editor
@JamesWood Are you really suggesting the average end user finds it intuitive to count lines where the first line is "line 0"?

comment Transition to new Design, offer a 'Classic Mode' or not?
I think gradual change is a good solution that let's you avoid double maintenance and still holds users by the hand while changing to a new visual look.

comment Correct window dimensions
This is mere speculation but I wouldn't be surprised if the windows 8 ui elements are responsive in scaling.
