Do you really need a cold wallet? How often are Bitcoins stolen? The official website says the Satoshi client offers a high level of security.

How does one move from a hot to cold wallet?

Does the cold storage client need to be encrypted or backed up?

Is there a difference between a private key and the .dat file?

If you want to spend or transfer your cold wallet, do you have to go online and dl the entire blockchain?   Huh

Thanks.

Its better to be safe than to be sorry.

You don't walk around town with your entire savings in your pocket do you?

You don't need a cold wallet..... until your coins are stolen.

Good post on how to have a secure back up your secret key, I agree that the term "wallet" is confusing since the bitcoins are not actually stored in it.

100% secure, DOES NOT exist in computerland. You can try and get as close as you can, but 100% is an illusion.
The air wall, however, is still the best security.

Affirmative.

The wallet.dat file is universal, your OS doesn't have anything to do with it Wink
