comment Running a bare-metal hypervisor and VM on the same machine
If you only have a couple of servers, probably not, but if you have many it is. Our company had separate physical servers at one time for email, software licensing, domain controllers, ERP software, SQL, VPN server, and more, and we were able to move that all to two physical boxes with less power consumption and rackspace used. We also can spin up or remove servers easily when needed, and disaster recovery is easier since the drives are virtual as well. It has a lot of benefits.

comment Is there any reason why Linux distros can reconize USB devices instantly, but Windows takes 1+ minutes to?
Just an untested theory on my end, but I think it has something to do with the fact that Windows device drivers are signed it and it may be verifying signatures as it loads and searches for drivers. Newer versions of Windows are also checking WIndows Update by default. Regarding verification of signatures, I think it is possible to disable that verification somehow. If I find out I'll report back.

comment iptables vs route
I haven't tried it but I think you can compile the kernel with Netfilter disabled, yet forwarding will still work if it's enabled. So I believe Netfilter and the routing facility are separate.

comment cannot execute binary file: Exec format error
Does your script begin with #!/bin/bash or similar, so the OS knows it's a script? If not it may be trying to run it as a binary which will fail if it's not actually an executable-format binary.

comment Are there technical reasons why specific directories can or should be excluded from backup in Linux, and what are those directories?
Also, do back up /boot.

Back it up. If you have scripts that mount things to /mnt they will need the directories there. Probably don't need to backup /media though. This is assuming your tool won't traverse other filesystems on /mnt - if it might and you have something mounted there, then exclude /mnt/*.

/tmp is intended for temporary files that don't survive reboot, /run holds things like pid files, lock files, and other stuff that doesn't need to be persistent, and /shm is a mounted shm filesystem which resides in RAM only.

comment iptables - kill established NAT connections
There's a utility called 'cutter' IIRC that will RST TCP connections you specify.

comment What does this mean - “Intel HD Graphics (WWAN or mSATA capable)”?
Technical features of PCs are often subject to errors by those who are responsible for marketing them or creating descriptions of them. You should search for the user's manual, or ideally the service manual, to precisely know what this means.
