Software

Checking to see the structure and amount of contents on your hard drive is a pretty important capability. We’ve been gifted with a Linux-native program that offers a simplified set of features that is, in my opinion, easy to use and more visually appealing. What is it and what exactly does it do?

About Baobab

Baobab is often masked in distributions by the name ‘Disk Usage Analyzer” rather than Baobab, but once you open the program and click on “About“, the name will suddenly appear. The name is based off the Baobab (tree), which is apparently the first kind of tree the developers thought of when making the program because of the tree’s unique way in which its bigger branches go off into smaller and smaller branches.
