comment How does Linux know that the new password is similar to the previous one?
What it doesn't explain is when it knows your past n passwords :) "Password has been used too recently", which prevents swapping the same few passwords in a corporate environment.

comment Marking mail as spam in Thunderbird
It adds the post to a junk filter log, which I presume "learns" what is spam and what isn't. It isn't clearly told what it does: support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/thunderbird-and-junk-spam-messages (search for: "Training the junk filter")

comment Should I remove the Windows update 2982791?
You should probably change the title to "Should I remove the Windows update 2982791", based on how the question is formed.

comment Altgr randomly stops working on windows 8
Worked for me. Really crazy, but at least for me it was enough to click on the remote desktop window and then click an open program in the remote desktop. After that it worked again everywhere, without rebooting or closing anything.

comment What is the purpose of using a large ping packet?
Some 10 years ago, I had to debug the default MTU of Windows, because the connection never worked to specific places. This was detectable by changing the ping packet size from the default value to bigger ones. Afaik 1500 was too much, and 1400 allowed normal operation (ADSL in Finland).

comment What is the “Windows subsystem”
Thus spoketh Wikipedia: "CSRSS runs as a user-mode system service. When a user-mode process calls a function involving console windows, process/thread creation, or side-by-side support, instead of issuing a system call, the Win32 libraries (kernel32.dll, user32.dll, gdi32.dll) send an inter-process call to the CSRSS process which does most of the actual work without compromising the kernel. Window manager and GDI services are handled by a kernel mode driver (win32k.sys) instead."

comment Run an Application When PC Locked?
(necrothread, but ah well). The biggest point I can see is: transfering a lot of files and going away from the computer while the copying is in process. Especially in a workplace setting, it is common that you must lock the computer if you are not near it.

comment Home network file shares only work one way
@Jeeva that gives an "Unspecified error" with a non-descript error code 0x80004005. On a browser, it gives an Unable to connect error (Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at 88.195.208.1.). Ping gets a response immediately from both computers, though.
