An important part of data recovery is knowing that the data which is stored is correct. This process is generally easier said than done, after all, how can you tell that data is complete and accurate? As important as this is, it is not something you would think can be easily accomplished without lots of time or some very fancy equipment.

Today, I’ll be telling the story of our own migration to Linux. As you can probably infer from the title of this story, it’s been a success.
I keep getting asked about Google’s “distribution of Ubuntu”, so perhaps this is a good place for me to say that as far as I’m aware there is absolutely no truth to the rumour that Google plans to distribute a derivative of Ubuntu as a Google OS.
