comment How to read Vim keystroke syntax?
Are you asking about how you would read the directions out loud in English, or about what key(s) it is instructing you to press?

comment Will Internet Explorer run on Windows 10?
@sleske, IANAL, but I'm fairly sure that's not what Microsoft meant. The sentence before that is "You may use the software for testing purposes only." By "no commercial use" they're trying to prohibit things like a service that takes screenshots of websites on various IE versions.

comment Resizing and cropping images to 6x4 to width of 1024
@ChrisJohnson, in a comment on the question, the OP did say that he wanted to crop rather than letterbox (which is what you're describing).

comment Need clarification on what IDE hard drive size—2.5 inch versus 3.5 inch—actually means
Yes, but they were still called 3.5" discs, so that's what the corresponding drives were called.

comment Need clarification on what IDE hard drive size—2.5 inch versus 3.5 inch—actually means
For 5.25" and 3.5" drives, the number actually refers to the size of the floppy disc that would fit in a drive of that size. That's why a 3.5" drive is really 4" wide; the drive has to be a bit wider than the floppy. Newer (smaller) drive sizes may refer to the maximum platter size possible.

comment How can I know if a partition is mounted or unmounted?
@Jules, on some distros, /etc/mtab is actually a symlink to /proc/mounts.

comment How can I prepend a line number and tab to each line of a text file?
Actually, you can tell nl to omit the space before the number. Just use the -w1 option to tell it the minimum width for a number is 1.

comment emacs cannot read files just after starting
Try M-x toggle-debug-on-error (or checking "Enter Debugger on Error" in the Options menu) first. Also, what does C-h v temporary-file-directory report?
