comment Creating operating system (OS) user in Oracle LINUX
Operating System user is just used here to distinguish the account from a database account which is defined in a mysql table. An OS user is defined in /etc/passwd, a shared directory or similar.

comment Seemingly Inconsistent Behavior for “ln” & “ln -s”
You statement "the ln command creates a symlink, with the default being a hard link and the -s option creating a soft link." should be "the ln command creates a link, the default being a hard link and the -s option creating a symbolic link".

comment Portability of file descriptor links
Your statements about Solaris are a little outdated. With Solaris releases less than 10 years old, the pfiles command shows the file descriptors path. It retrieves this information from the /proc/<pid>/path directory which you might also mention. See docs.oracle.com/cd/E19253-01/817-0547/esxiq/index.html

comment How to keep Bash running after command execution?
@pawel7318 Both of my answers were answering to your requirements at the time you express them. Ctrl-C is stopping "some_program" as you asked to. You wrote you want to be able to stop the program to run shell commands then have "some_program" to be run again. As there should be also a way to leave both that shell and the program execution, you can't have this behavior without some sort of menu.

comment At what point did the /home directory appear?
My best guess would be FreeBSD didn't want to be too much disruptive.
