In case anyone was looking for such.
 
You might wonder why you should care about lightweight Linux distributions in the era of multicore processors and inexpensive RAM. Basically, there are three points that make lightweight distros important: 1) They can revive old hardware, bringing new life into it; 2) They can power modern, but low-power systems such as Raspberry Pi; and 3) They can run on the most powerful modern hardware, reserving resources for users instead of consuming them themselves.
We take a quick look at seven easy-to-install, lightweight Linux distros.

+Peter D'Souza sounds like you know your way around a distro or two, in which case I highly recommend Arch to you. It really is a mostly blank canvas that you can do whatever you want with. It can be a server, a dev box, a desktop, a gaming rig, a business desktop, it's all in the package selection and configuration you choose.

Really wish there was a way to just push the DO tutorials to this community.

They're pretty much amazing.

+Brian Smith - it's been "the future" for 15+ years. And I agree it's a Good Idea(tm), but it is distinctly not necessary for private, internal networks :)

Public routing, otoh, is a different story.

found this via the #TriLUG  mailing list. Quoting the original message:

"xargs is a gender-changer type program that adapts one program's stdout
to the next program's command line arguments. It's extremely handy for
shell scripting, but it can be tricky. I've written a short guide for
xargs that shows how to get around the usual xargs landmines:

Hope you like it.

Yea, I still don't see why find's semicolon has to be escaped. Also, xargs -I (capital i) is often useful.

I could use some of these.
 
We take a look at the #Crucial  MX200 #SSD  series here at 1TB and 500GB. At around .36 per GiB, these are a very solid value and pretty dang quick too. #Storage  
In this review, HotHardware takes a detailed look at Crucial's MX200 1TB and 500GB SSDs.

I have one of these Crucial SSD's, it's been rock solid for YEARS! As my main dev box... so lots of reads and writes. The only hiccup came when it needed a firmware upgrade for a bug, once that was completed it's right back to work. Highly recommend.

Anyone here subscribing to the print addition of Linux Voice and if so does it arrive on time and in decent shape? I have picked up a couple of issues at Barnes and Nobel but that is a long haul for a magazine. Thanks!
