HowTos

It doesn’t matter if you are using Windows, Linux or Mac, as long as you don’t maintain it, it will grow out of hand and become very messy. Previously, we have discussed 8 useful ways and Bleachbit to help you maintain a clean lean Ubuntu machine.

This time, we are going to show you 4 more ways to keep your Ubuntu clean.

1. Delete a file permanently instead of moving to trash
When you delete a file, it will be moved to the trash and remain there infinitely until you empty your trash. If you have completely no use for the file, why not delete it permanently and free up some space?

In your Nautilus (file manager), go to Edit -> Preferences. Under the Behavior tab, check the box “Include a Delete command that bypass Trash“. Click Ok.

Open source is not dead

I don’t think you can compare Red Hat to other Linux distributions because we are not a distribution company. We have a business model on Enterprise Linux. But I would compare the other distributions to Fedora because it’s a community-driven distribution. The commercially-driven distribution for Red Hat which is Enterprise Linux has paid staff behind it and unlike Microsoft we have a Security Response Team. So for example, even if we have the smallest security issue, we have a guaranteed resolution pattern which nobody else can give because everybody has volunteers, which is fine. I am not saying that the volunteers are not good people, they are often the best people in the industry but they have no hard commitments to fixing certain things within certain timeframes. They will fix it when they can. Most of those people are committed and will immediately get onto it. But as a company that uses open source you have no guarantee about the resolution time. So in terms of this, it is much better using Red Hat in that sense. It’s really what our business model is designed around; to give securities and certainties to the customers who want to use open source. Read more
