Tips & Tricks:
Create your own answer bot in the terminal.
Sometimes when you run an update and something fails you don’t want to go through the hassle of answering Yes to every single instance over again. In this case you can make your very own Answer Bot using a Pipe.
yes | apt-get upgrade
yes | pacman -Syu
no | command of your choice
This will keep you from having to manually answer each time by putting yes or no the pipe symbol and your command.
Thanks everyone, really enjoyed this and looking forward to the new Hardware Addicts podcasts too
@zebedee.boss, sorry to hear of the loss of your friend; sounds like he was a great guy as well as a strong member of the Linux Community. My thoughts are with all of his family and friends.
The new enterprise-level tool for ZorinOS sounds fantastic. I know someone who’s looking to set up a small business and set up the networked machines as Linux only, so we’ll consider that as an option, possibly, though I would have thought perhaps Ubuntu might be worth looking at for both server and desktops. Myself being a fan of Debian and knowing it’s stability, would lean more towards that though I’m not sure what support options are available for an enterprise basing their systems on that.
Whatever Mozilla are doing, I wish them well. They’re the last FOSS man standing out of the big browsers; I really wouldn’t want them to be swept aside. We absolutely need choice in that arena in my opinion. I hope their redeployment of resources helps them progress in the areas they wish to move into as well.
Thumbs-up for VeraCrypt - an excellent replacement for the excellent TrueCrypt of old!
