comment Copy file with ADS (Alternate Data Streams) via Network loses hidden streams?
It makes sense for them to strip it out. There is no guarantee that the destination file system will support ADS.

comment How to tell software which output to use?
The Windows Mixer will not (and probably never) do that. Many programs still use the legacy APIs and you risk crashing.

comment Is Windows PowerShell as powerful as the terminal of Unix/Linux?
People offline tell me ... that Windows Powershell is an attempt to make UNIX administrators feel more comfortable using Windows. Those people have neither used Unix or Powershell.

AFAIK, the Windows API does support this, but the application must be using the updated APIs.

comment 100% of RAM is used when the Task Manager shows a cumulative usage of - what should be - less than 12%
5GB into the Non-Paged Pool?? I'd take a look into that. Do you have a page file? What kind of hardware do you have?

comment “Memory IS RAM!” - How true is this?
From a programer's and CPU standpoint, this makes sense. You don't directly interact with anything else except memory. Files on disk are copied into memory. Network traffic is accessed thought memory.

comment SvcHost taking up about 300MB
I don't think this is out of the ordinary. I have a svchost.exe in Windows 7 that is about the same size and it runs just fine. Is there a problem that we are trying to solve? Cause you can just turn off all those services. . .

comment Is there any 'sudo' command for Windows?
I believe the term you are looking for is "elevated" access. Even though your credentials have admin permission, processes under your credentials don't have admin permissions until you "sudo" the command. In Windows, they call it "elevate".

comment Is there any 'sudo' command for Windows?
Unfortunately, this is seriously outdated. Runas merely runs commands under a different set of credentials. Even though your credentials have admin permissions, it doesn't mean all processes under your credentials run as admin.

comment Why is the Windows 8 recycle bin using more space than it is allocated?
@pabouk: . . .to 10000 MB for the main user of this computer, and disabled the recycle bin for the other user, and refreshed the folder in WinDirStat, but it still takes 26 GB of space. I see no "delete" here.
