comment File manager that can queue transfers and copy actual files later
I recommend SpeedCommander it also queues operations like moves, copies and deletions.

comment How does copy-on-write in fork() handle multiple fork?
I think David Kohen is right to some point. This is one way to implement copy-on-write. The gist would be that with this marking, writing to that page would trigger a page-fault handler that would then take appropriate action, i.e. copy-on-write. Unfortunately this detail (which would be system-specific) is mostly irrelevant for the question. Keep in mind that CoW has two dimensions: the one visible to the process and the one of how the kernel might implement it.

comment Is there a way to zerofill the page file once for VM compaction?
@AFH: fair enough. And I'll take a no as an answer to my question. But if possible I'll go for the single-shot solution instead of having to boot again and disable the policy manual. But thanks for the input. It is appreciated.

comment Is there a way to zerofill the page file once for VM compaction?
@AFH: yes you are missing something big. If I boot it again to disable the policy, the page file is "dirty" again. Hence, no need to enable the policy the first time around, because rebooting into the system will undo the effect. Wiping the page file only ever makes sense if the system is left offline afterward (for compaction/archiving in my case).

@Hennes: same question as which one? In principle a bootable ISO would work, that would require a more opinion-based question and answers (which I asked on Software Recommendations).

comment Is there a way to have Vim figure out the tab settings in a Python file without modeline?
I was not asking to set an indentation based on the filetype. Anyway, the second question with an answer pointing to vim-sleuth is what I was looking for. Thanks to the one pointing to that one.

comment How can I provably put something in the public domain so that someone else can not patent it?
@JSH: I bet the misunderstanding (on my part!) is that it's called "Ask Patents" when it should be called "Ask US patents". And although I know that time of invention plays little role in patents, I know the described method to work in reliably in some European jurisdictions. Example: you invent a board game (something usually not patented). You go to publishers and present it. They decline. Months later they publish your stuff under different name. You can now sue them and the sealed letter with post stamp will indeed be considered evidence.

comment How can I provably put something in the public domain so that someone else can not patent it?
@JSH: YMMV, but in some jurisdictions the post stamp certainly has that value of proof. It's not secret (you may still publish it), but if someone contests that you were the one to publish it or similar stunts, you can prove (again, in some jurisdictions) that you indeed invented it and whatever else you put into the sealed envelope.
