comment “rm -rf /” VS. “mv -r / /dev/null”
usually I do mkfs.ext3 /dev/sdx# would it be faster than rm/mv ?

if you've done your homework, you should see {only in the GUI} in help doc. and your question tagged with terminal

comment Recursively list full absolute path of files with permissions in Linux
if your $PWD is huge, there is no faster way than your last find command. btw, you may want to have a -a (and) between -type and -name? or maybe single -name is enough for your find?

comment How to move folder in unix using mv, only when target is on the same drive
yep, I thought of stat too, so I came with the comment under the question. then I found out the %d is not reliable. maybe playing with the df or lsblk would be the solution. however yours may have problem. e.g. / and /home are different partitions but same device(disk). the if will return false. I feel the question is not clear. what if 3 partitions on same device (disk) have 3 different filesystems? say (ext3, ntfs, fat32)? anyway, +1 your post for your effort!

this %d outputs different values for different dirs (same partition even) try with your / and /tmp
