comment Best way to obfuscate aix script
To encrypt you could leverage openssl or gpg for instance. But note that you have to decrypt the script before you run it. If you don't know how to compile, skip that idea. It's insecure anyway.

comment Best way to obfuscate aix script
It was meant as a joke because Perl has a reputation of being hard to read. The real answer is “don't do that”! If the code is secret, encrypt it (or at least compile it to a binary which is much harder to reverse engineer than an obfuscated script). If it's not secret, share it.

comment How can users disk usage be limited without quotas?
You could use a loopback device of a fixed size for each user. Then the home directory will then be limited to that size. But I don't think it's practical at a larger scale. Possibly you could leverage LVM or ZFS as well to achieve something similar.

comment How can users disk usage be limited without quotas?
The solution here seems to use quotas. That's exactly the use case they initially were designed for. I don't know which software and protocols you use. But I doubt that a Windows server is not capable of setting up quotas. It's a basic feature in every larger institution. You should talk to the responsible admin.

comment Check if directory is a mount point
I agree it's Linux specific. In general I don't think there's a better alternative to parsing the mount or df output. I understand the question that the OP wants to check if that directory is a mount point at this moment and that's what mountpoint does.

comment What should I consider when choosing a filesystem for a personal disk archive / cold storage?
You should consider maturity, data integrity, availability for the target platform, required featureset (e.g. compression), scalability and familiarity with the file system. A file system you know that does the job well is always the better choice before learning something new. Especially when it comes to backups. If ext4 works for you, just keep using it.
