Re: Article #4 --- Due by February 4th

If you are looking to create restore points on Linux, a program called TimeShift may be able to help. TimeShift allows you to backup and protect system files and settings (refered to as "creating a snapshot"), but leaves your personal files like pictures and documents alone. TimeShift is open source and looks fairly straight forward to use.

Re: Article #4 --- Due by February 4th

This Article is about installing Ubuntu  on a Mac Book pro retina.
Get a usb with Ubuntu on it, but before plugging in the USB to the macbook the article says to resize partions to whatever size you want it to be, so the newly created partion will be used for Ubuntu. After that plug in the USB. Restart the macbook and hold down the options button when screen turns blank. after that choose the partion you made and install Ubuntu on it.

Re: Article #4 --- Due by February 4th

This article goes over 25 little-known facts about Linux. One that was crazy to me was that a major part of today’s Linux kernel is written in C programming language and assembly language and only 2%of today’s kernel contains code written by Torvalds.

Re: Article #4 --- Due by February 4th

This article is about the ss command and how the netstat is being replaced by the faster,more human-readable ss command. The ss command can also display  more TCP and state information than most other tools. the article then goes into how to make use of this new command and how it will help troubleshoot issues with networking. 

Thank you

Re: Article #4 --- Due by February 4th

Article from HowToGeek that explains how to stop your Ubuntu install from sending information about your system to the developers. Some of the stuff that is sent includes information about: your cpu, bios version, desktop environment, display server, resolution and partition sizes. You can opt out of this by running a terminal command.. Since I am a privacy freak, I would install ubuntu without a network connection, run the command, and then enable network access. Article also goes over how to opt out of package popularity contests, and automatic bug reports.

Re: Article #4 --- Due by February 4th

 This article covers the difference between Linux and Unix. It goes into the history of the two and apparently from a users perspective not much is different. The main differences between Linux and Unix are mainly related to the licensing model open source vs proprietary. Linux has shown an advantage over Unix in its availability across a vast number of hardware platforms and devices. Linux seems to continue to have a great impact and will continue to in the future across the software world.

Charles Barrett, with some people probably playing with Linux at home, it might be nice to learn about back up types such as full backup, differential back ups, and incremental backup with abit of explanation with it. this site even tell you the positive and negatives of  each.  http://linuxblog.darkduck.com/2019/01/linux-backup-types-explained.html

Re: Article #4 --- Due by February 4th

This article talks about the Linux distro Tails 3.12 update. Tails is a security-focused Debian-based Linux distribution aimed at preserving privacy and anonymity. All incoming and outgoing connections are forced to go through Tor, and any and all non-anonymous connections are blocked. According to this article, this update aims to fix critical bugs that can undo the privacy benefits. ​https://betanews.com/2019/02/01/privacy-linux-distro-tails-312/

Re: Article #4 --- Due by February 4th

My article talks about a Linux OS called Endless, it's formatted to have a similar layout to an android phone or tablet. With parental control features, it will make a great OS for learning environments like school systems and at home.
