comment Fix for bash line-wrapping & backspace display bugs on Mac OS X?
+1 While @Juliano's answer is technically correct, this link here is what sets the correct tput commands - which has fixed newline, `` newline and other "history + backspacing" fixes that using other ANSI codes could not fix.

comment Any benefit or detriment from removing a pagefile on an 8GB RAM machine?
Software Engineer, Photoshop (amatur) Artist and avid gamer here for the past 20 years. I disabled the Paging file back in XP, and have never looked back. At this moment, I have two VMs running while playing BF4 while answering this SF question with 12 tabs open in Chrome. Given, I have always maxed my ram (8, 12, 16, 32, etc) - this particular machine has 32 GB. Instant access and no thrashing of my precious SSDs. The only issues I've had is with Visual Studio and bad code that creates memory leaks, using 20GB of ram! Not a pagefile need - better coding needs!

comment Are independent persistent disks faster than dependent ones in vmware server 1?
@kagemaru I disagree (quoting my original answer, and yes I was talking about RDM = Raw Device Mapping). This does not answer the original question either, as he was asking for comparisons. If you have ever done performance metrics on Relational Database Management Systems (aka "RDBMS") then you'll immediately see a performance drop in sequential writes. Even directly quoted from that PDF you linked to, "For sequentialreads and writes, performance of VMFS is very close to that of RDM(except on sequential reads with an I/O block size of 4K)." This is where it falls down fast, very fast.

comment RDC is fast to host, slow to VMs (Hyper-V)
+1 Thanks for the replies! I ended up using a 2nd nic for now, which seems to work. The next time I end up running Hyper-V on a single NIC setup, I will try your suggestion. For now, I'll mark it as the answer.

W2K8R2 for the host. The 1 VM locally is W2K3R2 (WHS actually). It's a Quad Core w/4 GB of ram - plently of resources. Configured for External connection type (if I understand your question).
