Failed Hard Forks of Bitcoin: XT, Classic, and Unlimited

The place for everything bitcoin!

Bitcoin is the currency of the Internet: a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Unlike traditional currencies such as dollars, bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no one in charge of bitcoin and it is made up of willing participants. Bitcoin gives you the option to be your own bank.

If SegWit gets activated expect massive attacks from BlockStream against non-segwit TXs

In the past we have seen the ways of BlockStream by the attacks against BitcoinXT wallets and later Bitcoin Unlimited wallets. Judge people by their actions. They will start massive TX malleability attacks against every single non-segwit TX in hope of forcing everyone to use their patented pseudo-solution. A company that engages in such malicious activities is not fit to decide what is best for Bitcoin.

An explanation for less technical users (myself included). Tell me if I got this right

So right now, there is a big controversy going on about how bitcoin operates. The community is divided into 2 different camps. Since they are going 2 different ways, it's called a "fork," like a fork in the road.
There are various ways to use bitcoin, which are the various wallet programs and apps. There are smart phone wallets, which let you spend bitcoin from you phone; Apple wallets, spend using an Apple computer; Android wallets; Windows wallets; etc. But for bitcoin to have a network, it requires at least some people use the "main" wallets (called Core wallets). That's because these Core wallet apps keep track of the transactions that the rest of the community is making. These Core wallets basically provide the whole functionality for spending the bitcoins, so they are pretty important.
There are two Core wallet programs: Bitcoin Core and BitcoinXT. Both of these keep track of the spending transactions for the rest of the community, but they do it in slightly different ways. The differences between the two so far could be seen as insignificant to some.
However, an event is coming that will require a change in the way the Core wallets operate. In order to keep track of the transactions, the Core programs require a certain amount of memory. This amount of memory is currently capped so as not to be excessive or resource intensive on users (1mb block chain). But the traffic for bitcoin transactions is increasing, and soon (~2017) a 1mb block chain will not be sufficient to handle all the transactions. If this happens, then I'm thinking something devastating will happen to the bitcoin environment, like transactions won't go through anymore (at least some of them).
So a decision needs to be made. Should the Core wallets increase the size of the block chain, avoiding a 2017 bitcoin catastrophe, but alienating Core users with lesser hardware specs? Or should Core wallets keep the current block chain size, allowing bitcoins to be more accessible, and opting to find another method to handle the increasing bitcoin traffic?
Many people want to increase the block chain size, but there are a few key figures who don't, and have the ability to prevent it on the Bitcoin Core wallet. But the XT wallet does not have such a hindrance, and may implement an increased block chain in the near future. Users who support this move are transitioning to the BitcoinXT wallet.

How do I access my BTC and future BCC in software wallets?

I understand that if you have BTC, you will have an equal amount of BCC (Bitcoin Cash) subsequent to the August 1 fork. But only if your exchange gives them to you, or if you have access to your private keys.
I'd rather just send my BTC to my computer software wallet so I have access to the keys themselves. BTW, what BTC wallet should I use? I keep hearing people mention Ethereum Electrum, but will Bitcoin Core wallet suffice? I have BitcoinXT wallet, that's essentially the Core wallet, right? I downloaded it awhile ago, but never used it. Upgraded to the latest Bitcoin Unlimited wallet, heard you guys endorse it, and it will still be able to spend BTC after segwit activates
So once I have BTC in my Bitcoin software wallet, how do I access my BCC? I know that the Bitcoin ABC wallet will deal in BCC, but what steps do I need for ABC to access the bitcoin on my computer?
Someone should write up a guide sticky it, I bet a lot of people want help with this =)

XT Nodes In Bitcoin Core Wallet (0.11.0)

So I'm starting out with a brand new machine and am installing Bitcoin Core 0.11.0 As expected its taking over a day. One thing I'm noticing that is curious and perhaps causing me concern is that often times half of my peers are using XT 0.11.0 This shouldn't make a difference until I get to late August of this year or so.
The above conditions were using a US IP address. Out of curiosity I switched to an European IP address (using VPN) at block 33800 (January, 2014) and I have had no XT peers so far.
I haven't really paid any attention to the whole XT debate but I'm wondering if there is any harm having competing peers in the my Bitcoin core wallet.

Noob question. I bought Bitcoin on Coinbase 2 years ago. Will I be able to transfer it to a Core wallet on my home PC? I hear they are running Bitcoin XT now.

What will happen to coins held in a Bitcoin [Core] Wallet on Android if XT or BU win a Majority

Hey!
So I keep 1 or 2 BTC on my android phone, when I first started with bitcoin I just went to the playstore and searched for Bitcoin, the Bitcoin Wallet was the top result and well rated, so I've used that ever since and it does the job fine.
With Cores reluctance to help Bitcoin scale, and the momentum XT And BU are gaining I remembered that the Wallet was developed by Bitcoin Core. I'm not sure how the coins are stored or whether I have full control over them with this wallet.
Would the network switching to XT affect the coins on my device, i.e. be unable to spend them?
Thanks in advance!

ELI5: What happens to the Bitcoin Core I'm currently running and my wallet if I download Bitcoin XT?

Will Core and XT then run simultaneously? Or must I delete Bitcoin Core? Or will XT replace and stand in the shoes of Bitcoin Core? Or what?
