Linux Voice

Article from Issue 215/2018

This month in Linux Voice. 

Welcome to Linux Voice. This month we feature some tools that bring new powers to familiar technologies. You probably know you can compress the data on your hard drive. But what about RAM memory? Data compression is more efficient than it used to be, and at today's processor speeds, the performance penalty is quite small. Before you add more memory to your system, why not try data compression with RAM? It might not work for everything, but you could save some money or prolong the useful life of a memory-challenged system. Also inside, we show you the Pass password management tool. Sure you can use Git for managing code, but did you know you can use it for managing passwords? We also help you get started with Docker and describe some scripts and tricks for working with LibreOffice metadata.
