How would you get a listing of only executable files in c:\windows\system32 directory using 7's GUI, the command prompt and a LINUX tool? What would the steps be to do this for each method?

Sorry, but you need to elaborate on this. Especially what you consider as being a "Windows GUI". Do you mean Explorer, the default File Selection window, or something an application generates?

Windows 7 Explorer allows to filter for file type. In the details view, click on the arrow right of "Type" column, and choose "Application".

In cmd.exe, issue a     dir c:\path\*.exe     , of course with your choice of drive and path.

I can't remember how to do that on Linux - we need to query the executiion privilege, I suppose.

find . -executable -type f
should show you all executable files in the current folder (and subfolders). However, the "executable files" concept is different from Windows - shell scripts are executable, for example, not only binaries (which would be Windows applications on Windows).
