On This Week in Linux, Michael mentioned Folding@Home as a way to help with COVID-19 research. They have a blog post describing what they are doing and how you can help.
Also on This Week in Linux, there is a new release of Clonezilla live, a partition and disk imaging/cloning program. We discuss the benefits of using this type of software to create full snapshots of disks and partitions.
That's all for this week. Be sure to stop by DLN's Discourse, Telegram, Mumble and Discord servers to continue the discussion. More information about this show and other Destination Linux Network shows and creators (like Eric and Nate for example) is available at destinationlinux.network.
