Btrfs System Rollbacks In Fedora 13

Hello,

One of the benefits of Btrfs besides offering competitive performance against other Linux file-systems and SSD optimizations is its support for sub-volumes and writable snapshots. While Btrfs is still in development and is not yet used as a default file-system by any Linux distribution, Red Hat has been looking to capitalize upon the capabilities of Btrfs by introducing support for system rollbacks into Fedora. The Btrfs-based system rollback support has been a feature for Fedora 13 so with the release of the Fedora 13 Beta earlier this week we decided to further investigate this feature.

6 of the best media burners for Linux

Introduction

Back in the day, a custom audio CD with the best love songs made a wonderful Valentine’s Day gift. Now she’d hardly be impressed.

You’d need to throw in the holiday videos and make sure it works on the high definition plasma to sweep her off her feet.

That might sound like a lot of work, but it’s a job you can get done with almost any Linux CD/DVD burning app.

That’s because most writing apps are equally capable of putting data on optical media as they are at retrieving it. And some apps don’t just do brute force ripping – they also have decent transcoding abilities and give you quite a bit of control over the end result.

In addition to normal CDs and DVDs, almost all apps can handle rewriteable (RW) and dual-layer double-capacity versions. Although high-capacity discs and their respective Blu-ray and HD DVD drives aren’t very common, if you own one, you can find at least a couple of applications for Linux that will put it to good use.

Since all distros come with a disc burning app, they get a lot of attention to make sure they integrate into their native environment and don’t look out of place. When you put in a blank CD, the burner should pick it up and ask you what kind of data you’d like to burn.

Yet despite all the glitz, the same age-old tools are chugging away at the back-end, giving the front-end apps approximately equal powers. So, how do the various disc burning apps stack up against each other and which one should you trust with your data? Let’s spin ’em up and find out.

5 Compiz Effects That Are Actually Useful

Compiz has a lot of nice effects that are mostly useless and I wrote about it before. In my quest to find a work place without distraction compiz effects doesn’t really fit in. Even though examples of compiz effects can be used to demonstrate a superior desktop experience compare to other OS, in reality most of the effects don’t have any practical use other than, “It looks cool”. Few weeks ago when I read about the formation of a new Compiz Council, I was interested to give compiz another try and in the process I actually found some of the effects that actually enhances my desktop experience (unlike wobbly window) and be more productive. Here are five effects that I actually found useful
