comment How can I make windows easier to resize in Xfce?
@Leiaz, I didn't know that. Thanks for the tip, although I'd still like to improve the border grabbing.

comment Running proprietary firmware in virtualized environment, but not in host environment
I don't think you'd get any benefit from this. The firmware runs on the wireless card, not the CPU, and the wireless card is still connected to your physical computer. Loading the firmware from a virtual machine doesn't change the access it has to your computer.

comment How to rename to fixed length
@Sigur, you only need to remove the -n option, which means "don't actually rename anything". The -v option prints the message about each file renamed, which you can keep or remove as you like.

comment Why can Linux show a file name containing character '/'?
@cHao, I'm about 99.9% sure Linux couldn't open a filename with a real / in it (created by manually editing a directory entry on disk), but it might be able to list it, which is all he's doing here.

@UlrichSchwarz, true, but the slash in that screenshot appears very light for U+002F in a typical terminal font, suggesting that it's a different character.

comment What does `mv ./*` without specifying destination do?
@user2485710, the key point is that in Unix, the shell is responsible for expanding wildcards before passing the command line arguments to the command. In Windows, each command has to expand wildcards itself. This allows Unix shells to offer advanced wildcard facilities that work with any command.
