Quite boring, really. Have faffed about with computers since the mid-80s, have worked as a network engineer, unix sysadmin and (occasionally) developer.

comment what is the difference between linux and solaris OS?
The only direct Minix heritage in Linux is that the first few iterations used Minix as a development platform (and initially used the Minix file system).

comment Do routers have IP Addresses?
Without an IP address associated with an interface, there is no way for stations on the LAN connected to the interface to resolve eth hardware address of the interface. So, while it's not (necessarily) needed for the administration of the router, it's needed for IP traffic to pass through. A switch does not need an IP address, other than for management, though, as it's purely a "layer 2" device.

comment Linux Routing. Computer A to computer C
Those routes should exist simply by virtue of adding the IP address(es) to the network interfaces.

comment Is it better to use the 192.168.x.x or 10.x.x.x address range for a small business network?
Almost. 192.168.0.0/16 256 (or 254) Class C networks, each able to support 254 devices. However, the actual "class" of network is mostly a moot point in this day and age.

If the /29 is part of ProviderA's allocation and is not showing up through ProviderB from the core and ProviderA then suddenly no longer announce it, how does the (non-announced) network via ProviderB actually help?
