comment What are the license(s) of the Linux man pages?
No, socket, connect, bind, send, recv, select, are all system calls and documented as part of the kernel. Glibc contains simple wrappers to allow them to be called from C programs, but the real implementation of the functions is in the kernel, and documented as part of the kernel documentation.

What "network functions" are you referring to? Many network functions are part of the kernel rather than glibc, and the documentation is not (IIRC) part of the glibc documentation.

comment Are IP addresses with and without leading zeroes the same?
@xR34P3Rx What specific IP addresses did you try to do it with and have it work? Just because 001 seems to work doesn't mean that 008 or 012 will work, given the concerns people have mentioned about octal (which are not windows-specific).

comment Why does checking whether a folder exists using -d on an empty string return true?
"exactly one nonempty argument." - this is a misleading summary - the page you linked mentions being called with exactly one argument and that argument being non-empty; nothing about the case of a nonempty argument followed by an empty one. The correct solution should be to surround the variable name in quotes.

comment Two partitions on USB drive
I have actually had Windows be unable to see (or at least not mount by default) the second partition even on a drive where both are formatted with windows-friendly filesystems (e.g. one FAT and one NTFS)

comment Why is hibernation still used?
@TutorialPoint - the adapter being plugged in may consume power, but it doesn't get used for the purpose of running the computer and maintaining the state.

comment Why do ISPs change your IP address?
@MattH What percentage of customers would really notice if they got put on NAT? I would, because I use ssh and remote desktop. But a lot of people have NAT anyway. They could, in principle, set it up to only give them a "real" IP address if they set up port forwards... or only if they complain.

comment Why do computers count from zero?
@Jimmy That was my point - if people "counted from one" in the sense they want computers to, they would count 2000 as one instead of as zero. This is, incidentally, how the ancient Romans actually did it (and would indeed describe a cycle like "2000, 2004, 2008" as a five-year cycle).
