comment Unix zip command
I'd suggest defining 'best'. Best compression? Best compatibility with 3rd party tools? Best compatibility with other OSes?

comment DVD/CD burning .zip: is it more reliable, faster, longer lasting to burn a zip of files rather than the files as a folder?
@Rob good point on the filename stuff. There are extensions to the ISO spec, but as extensions, aren't guaranteed.

comment What are some options for connecting one Linux host's filesystem to the other?
I'd suggest looking at setting up NFS for automount as well. Mounts from automount will play less havoc with your setup if the volume you're mounting is unavailable.

comment On unencrypted public wifi, what kind of real danger am I in?
RE: Q3, yes, https is secure, but many times it's just the login data (username/password) is encrypted, but the token (cookie) is not. Firesheep works by stealing this cookie.

comment Linux Device Files
I know what you mean, but I think you mean more like 'Device files have special formatting'. As how they work, they're pretty similar internally, just the formatting is different.

comment Will a Mac help me learn Linux?
I see your point, but since you have the ability to add a huge chunk of the UNIX toolkit, and it uses UNIX paths for these, you can still do a big chunk of UNIX things in cygwin. Granted, it does break down if you try to do Windows'y things. Our workloads differ obviously, i find it incredibly useful.
