comment how do applications communicate via sockets
when calling strace speaker-test I find a line connect(7, {sa_family=AF_LOCAL, sun_path="/run/user/0/pulse/native"}, 110) = 0 and then /proc/<pid-of-speaker-test>/fd/7 points to the receiving socket.

comment How to know if a disk is an SSD or an HDD
and what happens if you have a fibrechannel storage behind /dev/sdx that is using FAST technology from EMC or liquid data storage tech from Dell? Both decide on the fly if they are putting data onto the storage system's SSDs or SAS disks.
