Either that, or you could just add a notice about OS X to to answer.

Yes; I would like to remove the "+", but it's too late to edit the comment.

Esc + u is a very important way to do this on OSX where Alt + u gives you a totally unrelated character.

comment Why does the following shell sequence ends so quickly?
Strictly speaking, unless an error happens, the last line will be echo $x, either way. Your question is probably "why is the script does not stop on the interactive read?"

comment lshw shows a different amount of RAM than the 'free' command. Missing RAM?
What do initial messages in dmesg output say about RAM mapping (how much is "usable")? What does /proc/meminfo say?

comment How can I make sudo forget the password automatically after one command?
Do you mean that you'd only want to change the setting for yourself? Or only for one particular command? I suppose there's sudoedit -k just for that; make a convenient alias. I suspect that you can even make calling sudo vim by a particular user to use timestamp_timeout = 0, but I did not try that and cannot guarantee it would work.

comment Change icon for an application form command line?
Yhank you, I know that. I need to change the icon of a window dynamically; I suppose it's somehow standard under X11.

comment Is there a reason for ssh and sftp being so unintegrated?
My point is that merging sftp and ssh would be a significant pain, due to very different models of most everything. What they share is just the encryption layer.
