comment How can I identify what application is using a given file?
@ComFreek Well, ProcessExplorer might be more powerful in many cases, but for me Resource Monitor have always found the application locking the file I'm trying to do something with. I also prefer it to Process Explorer simply because it's right there in the OS. No need for an extra download and an extra shortcut somewhere.

comment Pipe output from two commands into one
Changing && with || would fix one of the issues though, wouldn't it? Anyways, no clue what a subshell is or why I should avoid it... :p

comment Pipe output from two commands into one
@devnull How does your method of {} and ; differ from edvinas.me answer? Or is it just two different ways of saying the same thing?

comment If you only run one OS, is Partitioning worth it?
I don't reinstall my OS frequently, but I was sure happy I had my stuff on a separate partition when my OS suddenly crashed completely and forced me to reinstall it. So... would definitely not say "there is no point"...

comment Directory links in Unix?
That's pretty awesome. Didn't know about that. Won't work very well in this case though because the final directory name is rather nondescript and prone to duplicates.

comment Directory links in Unix?
@slhck Because the path is a bit outside of our control. Annoying legacy software stuff...

comment Directory links in Unix?
@artistoex Well, first because I didn't know that was possible, but now also because that looked a bit long and annoying. Especially since you'd have to remember to do that as well.

comment How to run commands as in a queue
Yes you may, and I have wanted to. Problem is that I asked this when I worked at a company that were using Macs. I am no longer working there, nor do I have any Macs myself so I have no way of testing any of these. Don't feel comfortable with marking one as an answer when I am unable to test that it actually works, so for now I have hoped that people vote up those answers they find work well for them so the "answer" can emerge in that way instead.

comment How can I visualize the file system usage on Windows?
Yes! Looks so much better than the ugly WinDirStat. Very clean. Thanks :)

comment What file is used during login on Unix?
So to make a "global" change to $PATH for example, I would have to add my change to both ~/.bashrc and one of ~/.bash_profile, ~/.bash_login and ~/.profile?

comment What file is used during login on Unix?
So there is no way to see exactly which file(s)? I just have to sort of know what might be likely? For example in this case the shell seems to be bash and uname returns SunOS. But there is no .bash_profile or .bashrc. There are .profile, local.profile, local.login, local.cshrc. What do I use? Are the files you mention simply missing and I should create them? Or would they not be read and I need to use one of these already here? Also, what's the difference between login shells and all shells?
