wouldnt it be 'from STDIN' that differs, rather then 'to STDOUT'.. 'from STDOUT' don't really make sense to me

comment why is 1 inch in computer screen shorter than 1 inch in real?
you do assume that it is 22" exactly between two oposite pixels on the screen, this is probably not true. Also the diagonal dpi is a rather odd thing to even messure, there are not 1981 pixels in an exact diagonal row on the screen.

comment What is Gnome / KDE etc?
"multiple windows managers can be running at the same time" that's incorrect. There can only be one windowmanager running per X server (screen). Your mixing up desktop environments with window manager. As already said, KDE & Gnome are not windowmanagers but desktop environments. Application using different DE frameworks can run in parallel, even if using a window manager not part of a DE (both GNOME and KDE got there own default window manager). A window manager is just a special application that handles all other applications windows

comment What is “set environment” variables for?
if it's not in the PATH you can run it using it's full or relative path: in current directory a relative path could then be ./exectutablefile or full path /home/theuser/myexectuablefile
