comment Anyone used “Windows Services for UNIX”?
microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=35512 I think it does exactly that; also you get a ksh and a csh (but not a Bourne shell, that would be too useful). It's been a long time since I used it and would suggest Cygwin if you just want a UNIXy environment.

comment How do web-servers “listen” to IP addresses, interrupt or polling?
@Aron from a hardware and OS point of view they're fairly similar; event based servers will use a different system call (select(), epoll() or NT overlapped IO) and have more internal bookkeeping to determine what to do with the next packet.

comment Why data rate must be “auto” while using Auto-MDIX?
My reading of it is that manual setting turns off the link pulses and therefore it's impossible to determine whether you've got the right pair or not, although I'm not entirely sure of that.

comment Why is dwm.exe using so much memory?
Thanks, this has made my computer much faster, especially in Eclipse. Note that it turns off 'Aero' and its transparent window effects etc.
