comment Is typing %^ into cmd.exe a Windows easter egg?
@toddkaufmann "Brackets" can also refer to ( and ). It's a common use of the word outside of the US, see englishclub.com/writing/punctuation-round-brackets.htm for instance.

comment Can Mozilla Thunderbird show sent replies in threaded view?
Or, if you prefer not to use the Global Inbox, create a custom search folder: right-click the account, choose "Search Messages", then "Save as Search Folder", and customise it exactly as you did. It's the same thing under the hood, but for me (with multiple mail accounts, that I do want to keep separate), looks closer to how I like my mail.

comment Hyper-V appears to runs on top of the host OS, so why is it considered a native (type-1) hypervisor?
This is also why virtualization software may stop working as soon as you install Hyper-V, even if you have no indication that Hyper-V is actually running.

comment Is there a Windows file format with <CR>-separated records (without <LF> characters)?
Just FYI, MacOS used to use CR line endings before OS X, but it doesn't seem like that's where your file comes from.

comment Changing the default boot option without losing the boot menu
I'm familiar with EasyBCD, and it's good, but keep in mind that it's mainly a frontend for bcdedit and cannot do much that bcdedit cannot do. It would not have solved my problem. For a long while though, I have been using it as it was by far the easiest way to get Grub working from the Windows boot menu.

comment Changing the default boot option without losing the boot menu
I am using the boot loader from Windows 8, that part of the upgrade went well. My problem is that I would like to make Windows 8's boot loader default to booting Windows 7, which works, except I lose the option to boot anything else.
