General Development When you spend a lot of time looking at different Linux distributions you get used to reading the phrase, "... is a general purpose operating system with a focus toward..." Sometimes it's a focus toward ease of use, sometimes it's a focus toward improved package management, other times it's security. There are a lot of general purpose Linux distributions out there, which is good, but one thing I love about Linux is its ability to fill a niche. For instance, it would be difficult for me to get through a work week without having tools such as GParted Live, for partition management; Knoppix, for hardware detection; and Clonezilla, for saving and restoring disk images. This past week I had a chance to talk with Steven Shiau, one of the developers behind Clonezilla.

Well, ok, give credit where it's due: "It took only about 10 minutes to clone a 5.6 GBytes system image to all 41 computers via multicasting!"

With UDPCast I used to take 25 minutes to clone a 60 GB hard drive to 80 computers. Thats nice and I really recommend UDPCast.
