I think you're forgetting 'other'. Yes, they won't be the user, or group, but other is everyone else. They'd get those 'other' perms. Anything with other-write would be writable, anything with other-executable would be runnable.

@Mike Keller - better would be /bin/rbash. You'd need to be root and either make a hard link or symlink from bash => rbash. Then set up their environment to be VERY restrictive.

Unfortuntately even this can't stop everything. You'd have to change every executable to not have execute for 'other' and change every file and every non-temp dir to not have write for 'other'. That may cause bigger problems.

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.
