comment Does Windows still rely on MS-DOS?
I remember this, the whole VxD interface and VMM switcher. It was an interesting way to move forward somewhat on an OS and still have a lot of backwards compatibility.

comment Passing two arguments to a command using pipes
also, as far as your Update text, the output does come from cat, just you want the statements seemed as separate to cat, which it can not do since they are serialized into one stream.

comment Passing two arguments to a command using pipes
@firebat no, pipe means to take the stdout of the previous command as standard input of the next command. You can still have arguments, which are a different concept.

comment What is the difference between S-Video, Firewire and USB for cameras?
The best part of the iPhone (or other camera phone) camera is that it's always with you. If your camera phone has better video quality than your separate camera, it's probably quite a bit older and/or cheaper.

comment Should I be afraid of a malicious GIF file?
@Mokubai any format really. But these vulnerabilities are from coding bugs, and the more complex the format (TIF probably the worst) the more likely to have an issue.

comment Is there any disadvantage of vacuuming sqlite dbs?
@bot47 Yeah, mail is a particularly bad usage model for dbs. A lot of deletes. I'd write Mail.app so that it would vacuum on app shutdown. MacOS X comes with command line tools for sqlite2, you could probably wrine script to vacuum it yourself.
