comment How to override the default dir alias in Powershell?
Not sure why this was closed.. I had exactly this ("AllScope option cannot be removed") and the answer below solved my problem.

comment Any benefit or detriment from removing a pagefile on an 8GB RAM machine?
I have long believed that, instead of allowing Windows to manage my page file size, I should set it to a fixed amount (e.g. min 2GB, max 2GB), because letting it grow and shrink can cause fragmentation problems. Is that good thinking, or should I follow your first line and let Windows handle everything?

If you can name 90% of them then that implies there are at least ten manufacturers :-)

comment How to run OS X (Leopard or Tiger) in Windows?
I think, technically, you didn't purchase OS X; rather, you purchased the right (and the tools) to upgrade one of your Macs to the next version of OS X. Or, that's Apple's line, anyway.

comment Mac OS X: how to run GUI apps on a headless machine
I don't know either, but remember that macs don't ship with an X server installed by default. You need to install it from the disc. Perhaps you could get it to work then? (although I suspect you would only get X apps, and not Aqua, anyway)

Often limited to 3.5GB or so in practice.
