comment Is dynamic DNS for remote desktop secure?
I believe the question was in the context of Remote Desktop, RDP, and not direct connections to a file server, like SMB. IMO, portable drives are a bad alternative as it is more expensive and you have to deal with sync problems. (Do I have the latest copy?)

comment Virtual memory vs. Virtual address space
I think it is a very good analogy considering most people reading the answer are coming from the space of "what does virtual memory and virtual memory address space mean to me as a average user". Now if this is stackoverflow, then this analogy would not suffice and the question itself would need more context. Keep in mind this is Superuser, not Device Driver programmers group.

comment Is dynamic DNS for remote desktop secure?
I wouldn't say it is a "mistake" to open a port. A process would need to authenticate to suck down info. Maybe it is a mistake in cetain enterprise setting, but it is perfectly acceptable in a small business setting where time and money is too limited to setup a VPN.

comment Explorer can't be started running “explorer.exe” and doesn't open folders on double click
Did you try relogging or restarting? Technically, restarting explorer from the command line isn't a supported scenario.

comment Virtual memory vs. Virtual address space
2gb of user space only needs 2GB of physical memory. The 2GB limit is so much due to OS design, but more due to the fact that pointers in C/C++ are signed into by default.

comment user\<myuser>\Deskop folder not showing all shorcuts from Desktop
The installer can choose which folder. Does it install for all users? Public/Desktop folder. Does it install just for you? your desktop folder. Of course, these folders will change in future versions of the OS.
