Managing disk space has always been a significant task for sysadmins. Running out of disk space used to be the start of a long and complex series of tasks to increase the space available to a disk partition. It also required taking the system off-line. This usually involved installing a new hard drive, booting to recovery or single-user mode, creating a partition and a filesystem on the new hard drive, using temporary mount points to move the data from the too-small filesystem to the new, larger one, changing the content of the /etc/fstab file to reflect the correct device name for the new partition, and rebooting to remount the new filesystem on the correct mount point.
I've been running arch for a while now, I usually have a windows 7 on a separate part for... you know... windows stuff... But, I've gotten into the habit of doing just about everything on linux.
And then, along comes WSL... I've been reading about it. I'm in the windows insider program (don't ask), so I can use it, but it means installing windows 10 (and I really really hate the whole 'look at these beautiful colors and vague messages' installer thing).
Has anybody gotten into messing around with it? Pros/Conssubmitted by /u/muffinChicken
Red Hat Rising: Bulls Breath Sigh of Relief as Linux Rebounds
Shares of Linux and open-source software vendor Red Hat (RHT) are up $3.37, or over 4%, at $80.41, holding onto most of last night’s gains, after the company yesterday afternoon reported fiscal Q2 revenue and profit that topped analysts’ expectations, beat with its Q3 outlook as well, and raised its year outlook above consensus.

RHT has jumped 7% in pre-market trading, after the company's solid second-quarter earnings and upwardly revised outlook were met with a bevy of price-target hikes. CLSA offered up the most optimistic goal, boosting its price target to $99 from $94. Elsewhere, Mizuho Securities said it believes Red Hat Inc's results were "driven by stronger-than-expected cloud sales." Today's projected price move could have RHT filling a late-June bear gap. Longer term, the shares are up a modest 5.2% year-over-year, based on last night's settlement at $77.04. Nevertheless, analysts are mostly optimistic, with 14 of 16 maintaining a "buy" or better rating and not a single "sell" to be found.

Today, September 22, 2016, the openSUSE Project proudly announced the release and immediate availability for download of the second Beta development milestone towards the openSUSE Leap 42.2 operating system.
openSUSE Leap 42.2 Beta 2 comes with several interesting improvements and up-to-date software components, including the KDE Applications 16.08.0, KDE Frameworks 5.26.0, GStreamer 1.8.3, GTK+ 2.24.31, GTK+ 3.20.9, json-glib 1.2.2, Wireshark 2.2.0, and Xen 4.7.0_12.
Other than that, the openSUSE KDE team did a fantastic job of integrating the recently announced Beta release of the KDE Plasma 5.8 LTS desktop environment into openSUSE Leap 42.2 Beta 2 so you can get an early taste and see if there are any show stoppers that need to be addressed before the final version lands in mid-November.
LinuxConfig: Django is easily the most popular web framework written in Python.
Earlier this month it was revealed that ArduPilot, an open-source autopilot solution, would no longer be associated with the Linux Foundation’s Dronecode Project, an open-source drone platform. This came as a surprise to many considering that the idea of Dronecode came from the minds of ArduPilot.
“Dronecode was established around ArduPilot,” said Craig Elder, former technical community manager for Dronecode who leads software teams in ArduPilot. “What we tried to do with Dronecode was to do a better job at engaging the companies who are using ArduPilot.”
The reasoning behind this move is that ArduPilot is based on the open-source GPL license. According to Chris Anderson, chairman of Dronecode, the GPL license is great for the open-source development community, but toxic for companies.
Linux "lockout" tangle snarls Lenovo
After failing to install Linux on a recent Lenovo laptop, a Reddit user claims to have received a short reply from Lenovo's support team: "This system has a Signature Edition of Windows 10 Home installed. It is locked per our agreement with Microsoft."
The company is reportedly shutting discussion threads on its official forums to prevent "disruption," though the snarl of links and outrage flying around makes everything rather murky. The core facts at hand appear to be that a) the BIOS is programmed to enforce a RAID setup that is currently compatible only with Windows 10, and there's no technical rationale for it, it's just there to prevent other operating systems being installed. A is, of course, more plausibly true than B.
Which? slams Microsoft for Windows 10 update woes
Which? has called on Microsoft to honour the rights of its customers after a survey found that 12 per cent of those who upgraded to Windows 10 from an earlier version had rolled back and that many more were annoyed with the update.
More than half of those who rolled back to a previous edition said it was because the new version had caused problems with their devices.
The problems included printers, WiFi cards and speakers no longer working, files being lost and emails no longer syncing. In some cases the computer required professional repair.
Many complained that the only reason they upgraded in the first place was to get rid of the constant nagware employed by Microsoft through the GWX system installed on machines that qualified for a free upgrade.
Many said that they had actually turned down the nagware offers and found that Windows 10 had installed anyway.
Windows 10 software condemned by Which? [Ed: Microsoft should stand trial for it]
Microsoft has been criticised over its Windows 10 software by consumer rights group Which?.
The body said it had received hundreds of complaints about the upgrade, including lost files, emails no longer syncing and broken wi-fi and printing.
In some cases, it said, users had had to pay for their computer to be repaired.
Microsoft defended its software and highlighted that it provided help online and by phone.
"The Windows 10 upgrade is a choice designed to help people take advantage of the most secure and most productive Windows," said a spokesman.
"Customers have distinct options. Should a customer need help with the upgrade experience, we have numerous options including free customer support."
Which? surveyed more than 5,500 of its members in June, and said that 12% of the 2,500 who had upgraded to Windows 10 had later reverted to an earlier version.

Why we should just simply call ourselves Hackers
Developers, Programmers, Engineers, Code Artists, Coders, Codesmiths, Code Warriors, Craftsmen … these are currently the labels we use to explain our profession. One can get an idea of how this can appear confusing to the outsider.
Computers can enrich our lives, give focus, amplify our adventures, gauge our science and grow our business. Right now computing is being embedded into everything and it is now more than ever that we need to redefine our role and show. some. fucking. solidarity.
Rather than confusing pre-existing labels and shoe-horning them to our profession, which makes use of synthetic intelligence more than any, I propose that we call ourselves Hackers instead of the myriad other ways.
Germany surveys cyber-attacks
Germany’s Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) has launched a survey to obtain information about actual cyber-attacks on business and government, to assess potential risks, and to determine protective measures. The study should result in new ICT security recommendations.
Red Hat grows headcount by 25 percent in first half of fiscal 2017
Red Hat has on-boarded 1,000 new hires in the first half of the year, particularly in sales, Chief Finance Officer Frank Calderoni told analysts Wednesday – a 25 percent increase of its workforce.
By the end of the year, the company will scale its hiring plans back to normal, CEO Jim Whitehurst says. And sales – not acquisitions – will be how the Raleigh-based, open-source technology firm plans to make its $5 billion in five years goal.
Speaking after the firm reported $600 million in second quarter revenue, up 19 percent year-over-year, Whitehurst says the $5 billion goal he outlined earlier this year is based on markets the company already plays in – no acquisitions required.

Android-powered BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition unit up for grabs

LeEco Pro 3 formally announced, powered by Snapdragon 821
Only getting into the smartphone game last year, LeEco has seemingly come up out of the woodwork and is establishing itself as a player on the rise. The company isn’t content with holding still, either. LeEco has now announced the Le Pro 3, its new Qualcomm Snapdragon 821-powered flagship darling. While the latest Snapdragon is certainly one of the biggest claims to fame for the handset, the rest of the specs are pretty solid too.
The Le Pro 3 will come in either 4GB RAM/32GB storage or 6GB RAM/64GB storage configurations. Other specs include a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a 16MP main cam with f/2.0 aperture as well as PDAF and LED flash, an 8MP wide-angle front cam, and a generous 4070 mAh battery that supports USB-C and Quick Charge 3.0. Following in Apple’s direction, the LeEco Le Pro 3 will ditch the headphone jack in favor USB-C audio that features LeEco’s Continual Digital Lossless Audio tech. The phone will include Type-C earbuds in the box.
Google Give Android Nougat Statue to France’s Nougat City
Earlier this year, Google officially launched Android 7.0, and as always, this version of Google’s mobile operating system had a tasty treat for a name. Last year was Marshmallow, and following on from that alphabetically, Google gave us Android Nougat. Many thought that this version of Android was going to be Android Nutella, and some employees working on Android 7.0 even alluded to as much, but ultimately it was Nougat that stuck from the many proposals sent Google’s way. Considering that different sweets and confectionery are known more or less in different parts of the world, it should come as no surprise that there is in fact a City known for Nougat.
