comment Is there a Unix-y tool for taking notes on the command line?
Just type # note and scroll up through your command history to view it. grep ~\.bash_history ... to search.

comment What does this BSOD error message mean?
Try updating your nVidia drivers. If you've overclocked your graphics card, it may be having problems as a result. Check the fans on your system and graphics card. You should also open your system and blow out any dust that might cause high temperatures.

comment Is Windows PowerShell as powerful as the terminal of Unix/Linux?
@Luc: Here's a good example: technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee176828.aspx - $_.name is an object property if I'm not mistaken.

comment What's a good rule-of-thumb for choosing between Windows 32 bit and 64 bit?
@einpoklum: I don't think it's a technical reason - it was a policy change introduced by Microsoft with the advent of Vista. msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/… - I do remember reading something about Microsoft making the Vista and later kernel more secure against live patching due to things like the Protected Video Path - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protected_Media_Path.

DOSBox does not support printing or networked drives very well. Tried using it to replace an old DOS machine at my job but both the printing (to an old dot-matrix nonetheless) and storing on a backed-up network share were critical to where the 32-bit Windows 7 install was preferable.

comment Is 1GB RAM so little?
If you mostly use this box to play Youtube videos, try using an application called Minitube (flavio.tordini.org/minitube), it plays YouTube videos directly without Flash or HTML5. I had luck with it on a 900MHz Celeron with 1GB of RAM running Debian. There is a Windows version.

comment How forward packets from network interface to another
If you have a PC behind eth1, it must be on the same subnet as eth1, and the default gateway must be eth1's IP, not eth2's IP.

In your terminal program, lower the font size to something like 1x1 before viewing the image, then resize the terminal program to max size.
