comment Should a history skill check let a PC identify a language?
I guess I'd happily allow identifying a "language family" (I can look at text and say, with some certainty, that it's written in a Slavic language, but getting to "Polish", "Czech", "Slovak", "Croat", ... is a lot harder). Similarly, I can look at text and say "Estonian or Finnish", but...).

comment How different is D&D since it first came out?
If you look at OD&D, Halfling, Elf and Dwarf weren't even races, they were character classes. At least if my memory of the first two sets I used to own 30+ years ago are correct...

comment Dealing with large amount of dice rolls for a single damage roll without making it drag on
I timed this yesterday, rolling and summing 10D6 took me about 25 seconds (varied between 21 and 27 seconds, over six trials). Based on that, 40D6 should be rollable-and-summable in "under two minutes".

comment Dealing with large amount of dice rolls for a single damage roll without making it drag on
As to what my "daily dice carry" is, I have a box of 12 D6, slightly transparent; Chessex, I believe. I have 3D6 that were custom-designed by one of the players in my GURPS group and another 5-or-so D6, for a total of about 20 D6 in a pocket in my backpack.

comment What colors were the polyhedral dice in Red Box D&D?
I don't recall the colours of the dice in the box set I purchased in, um "mid-80s" (probably 1986 or 1987), but I do recall that they were not regular (the D6 has 4 rectangular and 2 square sides, the D12 and D20 were "squished", can't recall the D4 and D8 being true or warped)

comment Can I use the cryptography skill to learn new languages?
Cryptanalysis and Cryptography are indeed two different skills in GURPS. See page 7 of this PDF: sjgames.com/gurps/img/Adv-Dis-Skills.pdf

comment Can you roll dice pool or multiple dice rolls with only one dice?
Well, it may also be easier to check results with 5 dice rolled rather than 1 die rolled five times. But as far as probabilities goes, it's definitely equivalent.
