comment Is there any difference between Present Perfect and Present Perfect Continuous?
By the way, don't copy what Peter did and use the "It does imply" construct; always use "It implies" until you are very proficient in the language and know the situations where you can use it. It's extremely strong and I've seen non-native speakers abuse it after they've seen it used by somebody else. (In fact, I would probably edit the answer to "implies" to avoid any confusion)

comment Commas around “which”
While they are correct I would use - for the last 2, like this: Then use transparent background, which - unlike white - couldn't end up in the final logo.

comment Why are customers referred to as “users” in software and drug industry?
customer implies a person who is paying.. I don't think it would apply to software development as a LOT of things are done for free

comment Is there a difference between “innocent” and “not guilty”?
@Ham: no, the law system is not about guaranteeing that guilty people go to jail, it's about guaranteeing that innocent people don't go to jail. It's better if 100 murderers go free than if a single innocent person goes to jail. That's why many people who probably committed the crime are found not guilty.

comment Is there a difference between “innocent” and “not guilty”?
@Harrold: actually lawyers have an ethical obligations to do everything they can to help their clients, even if they know they did commit the crime. Not doing so would be considered highly unethical. He needs to uncover the truth to better help his client, but it's not the goal, it's a means to achieve the goal (help the client).

comment How does one use the Latin word “cum” in a sentence?
Needless to say that these times cum is usually used as slang for sperm, so I wouldn't use it with your meaning to avoid unwanted comedy effects. For example I would probably laugh if you were to say bedroom-cum-study..
