Not the tune I expected

Shawn Powers's picture

Based on your lyrics, I was expecting Tom Petty's Free Fallin to be the tune...

She's a good coder, livin down in Houston,
Loves Open Source, and the FSF too.
She's a good coder, crazy 'bout Stallman,
Loves Linux, and BSD too.

It's a long day, scriptin' for Windoze,
There's an buffer, overflowin the code.
He's a bad tech, cause he don't even help her,
He's a bad tech, for closin his source.

But we're freeeee, free hackers
Yeah we're freeeee, free hackin'

...sadly, I could probably go on.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
