comment Can't find a video game that meets requirement specs of my laptop :(
This is not the site for piracy at all. And there are many types of "this doesn't work". You have to be very specific as to what exactly doesn't work, with a specific game as well

It should be the same. The installer for Windows hasn't changed much since the Vista days

comment Fix an unusable flash drive
This kind of problem can't be fixed through software. When electronics fail, it's either the wiring/soldering that's gotten loose or corroded in some way, or a component that's gone bad. So you'll either have to resolder the components, replace the faulty wire, or replace the broken components. As Chris have said above, it's not usually worth the trouble

I think this is how it would work, but yeah, try it out and see how it goes, and hopefully my intuitions are right :)

comment Pass a (large) string to 'grep' instead of a file name
Maybe pipe some kind of text data to grep? So maybe something like printf "various\ntext to grep here" | grep "text" will produce "text to grep here"
