Clonezilla Live "Wily"

One of my favourite open source utilities is Clonezilla Live. The Clonezilla project creates tools to assist people in making copies of their hard drives and disk partitions. This can be useful at home for transferring an operating system from one computer to another. It's also a quick way to backup a system's packages and configuration files. In office environments it can be a big time saver to be able to clone one generic operating system onto multiple computers quickly. While installing, configuring and updating an operating system from scratch might take anywhere from half an hour to several hours, Clonezilla can transfer a copy of an operating system across a network in ten to twenty minutes.

Coming up in a short while I have some fresh AMDGPU-PRO BETA 2 (the fresh -PRO "hybrid" driver release) for OpenGL graphics performance while here are some quick OpenCL compute metrics. I tested this new AMDGPU-PRO driver on the GCN 1.2-based Radeon R9 285 (Tonga) and R9 Fury (Fiji) graphics cards and it also worked out fine for the GCN 1.1-based Radeon R9 290. All the tests were done on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS with the Linux 4.4 kernel. I compared these latest AMD results to the NVIDIA 364.19 results I did from some recent benchmarks on Phoronix. Read more
