comment Thunderbolt to USB3.0 to eSata
The short answer is almost certainly no. Thunderbolt is, for all intents and purposes, either PCI-e or displayPort. Since the camera doesn't claim it has a displayport output, it means it's likely acting as a PCI-e device. The only way that's going to work is if hooked up to a PCI-e connection.

comment Alternative to SSH command line from Ubuntu
Have you looked into terminal multiplexing software? Screen and tmux allow you to have multiple sessions open simultaneously, and provide a pseudo-windowed interface over a pure ssh session. Plus, it's almost guaranteed that your CentOS box even already has at least screen on it.

comment how do i measure my internet speed?
Speedtest is crap. Many modems do on-the-fly compression, and speedtest.net uses very compressible data, leading to massive measurement errors.

comment Can I use Cygwin as a replacement for Ubuntu, for bash script testing?
If you're having UI issues, maybe go for a Ubuntu Distro with a much lighter-weight UI. Xubuntu and Lubuntu are both Ubuntu distros with lighter-weight GUIs.

comment What is the bigger cylindrical part found at the end of USB cables but also some laptop PSU cables?
@jwg - Because laptops are excellent sources of it! It's actually more to prevent the laptop radiating electromagnetic noise then receiving it.

comment What is the danger of inserting and browsing an untrusted USB drive?
There is a whole level further down. Not only do file-systems have bugs, but the whole USB stack has bugs, and lots of that runs in the kernel.
