    I have a thinkpad T430 that I use both a linux os drive, and a win 10 drive in. I keep the drive bay cover off, and swap out the linux drive when I need to. ( which is not very often ).

    Desktop Linux Brick Wall

    I agree with using Libreoffice. I have used both over the years, and IMO, have found that Libreoffice seems to maintain formatting and appearance much better, especially the latest versions. I have also found that the tweaks listed here improve the useability and appearance even more...

    HGST SAS drive not working

    Don't know if this could be it, but... if there's an issue with disk finding or operation, once on the right firmware, consider the cable first. Even if a SAS cable can detect SATA drives it still might not work properly for SAS - I've had this and it's a hard one to trouble shoot if you...

    Laptop for Linux - Budget $800

    I am Super interested in your review of the T480 and the specs of the unit you get, and what os you run on it. I have a future target for that laptop if it performs as well or better that the souped up T430, and T440p. I look forward to and review you care to share. Thanks

That way the rsync would handle the transfer of...

    NAS distro recommendations

    Great information all, thank you. My thought process was to use nas with two 500 gb hdd's using raid as the interim storage space for the various computers in the network. Daily back up would actually be to a non raid connected device.

    NAS distro recommendations

    So, correct me if I am wrong, but you use the same hardware NAS unit, but direct linux to a synology partition, and windows to a fat partition ? Sorry, trying to wrap my ignorant head around it. Thanks
