Imagine I have just ubuntu installed on my computer and I make an image ubuntuImage01 of it as such using clonezilla.
Sometime in the future I dual boot with fedora.
Then later I accidentally delete all the files in the partition I had ubuntu installed. Such that I can't even get into tty.
I want ubuntu back therefore I use live usb to boot into clonezilla and have it restore ubuntuImage01 to the same partition where I had ubuntu once.
Since the imaged MBR only had one operating system but later it had two with fedora. Will that be overwritten by clonezilla and lose fedora?

I call Red Hat the king of Linux for a reason. The second oldest Linux company just reported quarterly revenues of $615 million, an impressive growth of 18 percent over last year in the same period. If I round that up, it means Red Hat should be making somewhere around $2.4 billion in 2016. That’s a billion with a ‘b’ and that’s really incredible for a company that only offers pure open source solutions that anyone can copy and redistribute.

Linux administrators will have to change their holiday plans, because Exim is still releasing a security update on Christmas Day, and not earlier as had been hoped.
An information leakage vulnerability was fixed last week in Exim, a widely used email agent for Unix and Linux systems, and major distributions are currently updating their packages to incorporate the fix. Exim maintainer Heiko Schlittermann originally announced on Dec. 18 that details of the vulnerability and the updated software will be available Dec. 25. There was a possibility the release date could be moved to Dec. 23 if the partner distributions could complete their preparations in a shorter timeframe, but that's no longer the case.
For those that haven't yet switched to Btrfs, ZFS On Linux, or running EXT4/XFS but holding out hope for Reiser4, this out-of-tree file-system code has been updated for Linux 4.9.
Reiser4 was released for Linux 4.9.0 last weekend but then a revised patch series came out three days ago to fix some problems with this port to 4.9. With the new Reiser4 patches built against Linux 4.9.1, all should be well if you want to use this experimental file-system on the newest Linux kernel.
Open source software provides an easy and affordable way to improve existing public services. According to the EC report 'Analysis of the Value of New Generation of eGovernment Services and How Can the Public Sector Become an Agent of Innovation through ICT', it allows a single developer to incrementally build human services based on publicly available source code.
