comment What components are missing comparing server version of linux distro to desktop version? Is it only the DE missing?
This answer could be a bit more succinct as the question was not "why" but "how" the versions differ.

comment How to chain multiple LESSOPEN scripts?
Thanks! Did not know about lessutils yet, they look nice. We're 90% there. Syntax highlight does not yet work for files that went through lesspipe but I'm sure I can make it work somehow.

comment “mv” command— file vanished into non-directory
And while we're at it: You need to put at least a colon at the end of the remote target (useful for copying something to a remote home directory) or scp works just like cp. Happens to me all the time and I always wonder briefly why my file isn't there.

comment Can I safely read a file that is appended to by another process?
I accepted the other answer simply because it was there first. The essence is the same. Thank you, too!

comment Can I safely read a file that is appended to by another process?
"B has no way to know" Yes, that's what I am/was unsure about. Sometimes there is magic. You can for example delete a file that's open; the actual file is removed once the last file descriptor is closed (at least that's what I read). Likewise the read() syscall could have been implemented to block instead of returning EOF if there is another FD in writing mode positioned at the end of the file or somesuch. Since there is no indication of that, I'll continue to use staging.

Yep, sounds better that way. Thanks.

I guessed as much but it's nice to have some confirmation. I also wasn't aware that /etc/environment is part of PAM. Thanks.
