You can love or hate Ubuntu but it has made a huge difference to the image of LINUX and now I think Zorin may have gone one better providing useability with stability. Could Zorin become bigger than both MINT and Ubuntu?

Subject: India Can Be Ubuntu's Impenetrable Fort

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The image that Ubuntu has created makes it easier for it to 'mingle' with the typical Indian users who, like most of us, are usually not very tech savvy. Indian market makes it easier for Ubuntu to invade the traditional Windows market. Unlike the US, where the delivery of content (such as Netflix) is one of the major hurdles in the adoption of Ubuntu, India doesn’t pose the same challenge because this sub-continent lacks such services.

Subject: How to Backup Your Files Over SMB in Linux

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I just recently acquired a Zyxel media server, which I wanted to use to backup my files over the network. The only problem was that there are no Linux backup programs (that I know of) capable of backing up over SMB, which meant I would have to write a script that could accomplish this. In my research I found a lot of hints at what could be done to backup over SMB but no real step by step guides on how to do it. That's why, now that I have gotten it accomplished thanks to some help from the guys over at LinuxQuestions, I'm writing an article on how you can backup your files over SMB automatically in Linux. Hopefully this will help someone out there that may not be tech savvy but can follow some simple instructions.

Subject: Find files on Linux with the command locate

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I just realized that I’ve never wrote anything about one of my favorite commands on the Linux shell: locate.This command take as input the name (or part of it) and instantly it gives you all the locations where that file is located, an alternative to this could be to use the command find, but there is an huge difference in the time that takes find to search large file systems in comparison to a locate, this difference is given from the fact that locate uses his own database where it stores all the file names, while find scan the directory and looks for the file name you have given as input.
