I'm a web developer and programmer from the UK. I'll fill this out more when I can be bothered; really I'm just trying to get the autobiography badge.

@clabacchio I don't know what you mean, what is a level in your context?

comment How can I identify what application is using a given file?
Is your file a video? You may find that Windows Explorer itself is "using" the file...

comment Compressing with RAR vs ZIP
@sep332: that option has been there for years before I wrote my answer and it does not do the same as Linux. If your zip file had multiple files/folders at the "root" level then they all get extracted to the current folder which is a mess if you have many files there already. On Linux it will automatically put them in a subfolder.

What's confusing is sometimes this works fine. I created a new image just now, made a path, then stroked it and voila, perfect.

Thanks for the answer! Somehow I forgot typewriters originally used the keyboard we have now.

@Zoredache it doesn't bug me, I was just interested from an "interface" perspective why it was the case. Inexplicably everyone else decided this factual question was "likely to solicit opinion, debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion".
