@Lukasa - It's consistent (as JdeBP noted) but it's also historical. The collision of NeXT and Classic MacOS meant many hard decisions about which conventions to keep, which to discard, and when to attempt both. Resource Forks on OS X were more painful until they were moved to Extended Attributes (John Siracusa's OS X 10.4 Tiger Review's section on their introduction).

comment How to execute a shell script with selected files/folders in finder?
In hindsight I should have linked How create an OS X service that passes a file's path to a shell script? which has a very similar answer.

comment With a USB bluetooth adapter do the devices pair with the dongle or the computer?
KVMs typically emulate the mouse (and keyboard) on the host connection and emulate the USB host on at least one port (often one for the KB, and one for the mouse). This is so that (among other things) you don't need to wait for the OS to re-initialize its connection with the KB/Mouse every time you switch machines.
