comment Where and how are custom startup commands configured in Linux?
Startup of what? Do you mean "during or after boot"? Do you mean "During or after I log in"? If log in, do you mean "log in to a local terminal"? Do you mean "Log in via a remote shell"? Do you mean "Log in from [xkg]dm"? Do you mean "Start up X"?

comment ffmpeg - h264 to xvid creates large file
xvid isn't as good at compression as h264. What did you expect?

+1. This is why real hackers love .bat files: There's nothing more hacky!

comment How to move files that are not in use?
As long as the file does not cross filesystem boundaries there should be no problem with moving it. If the file is not constantly open but is instead being opened, appended-to, and then closed, repeatedly, then there could be a problem.

comment How to check if a directory exists in Windows?
This is correct for testing file existence, but how do you know that it's a directory? The simplest answer is if exist mydirname\ and the rest as you say. Alternately, you could actually get a test binary and use it on Windows.

comment List of Windows special directories/shortcuts like '%TEMP%'
There's nothing special about the string "Godmode"; it can be any name you like, so long as it is followed by a period and then the value in curly braces.

It would be helpful to know exactly which Unix and what version.

comment In Windows, Mac, Linux is there a centralised facility for tracking changes/deletion/new files?
You can certainly get the Linux kernel to inform you of changes in this fashion (e.g. inotify) and write a program that maintains such a list and, if you like, you can even patch the GTK file picker to provide that list. If that's something you're interested in I recommend that you do it and submit/publish the patches. In Windows I imagine something similar can be done, except that patching the file picker is harder.

"Wouldn't it be useful if ..." is not really a question. Also, why is this tagged "linux" if your question is about Windows?

comment Changing file permissions works as root but not as sudo
@User1: It works fine to say find -name 'readme*' and not find readme* because in the latter case bash is expanding the glob into a list that overflows the command buffer and in the former case find is expanding the glob internally where no such restriction applies.
