How to Make All Your PC Times Match
With an Atomic Clock Sync
One place where time sync is important is
when making a backup of a system which is out of sync. This can
result in time-date stamps on some files being way off, even if
there's no BIOS or CMOS battery issue. When backing up with
CloneZilla for Linux, the program objects to these errors, and
asks if I want to change the system time to a more reasonable
value. I say No, but wonder if this affects restore ability down
the road. (So far, I ahve yet to see a Linux CloneZilla restore
fail for this reason. Other reasons yes, but not for time sync
No internet, secured – Fix Windows 10
The easiest and often the most effective
way to solve this temporary Windows 10 issue is to shut down the

clear sailing again.

Why You Should Use a Vertical Windows
I do this in Linux with the Unity Desktop,
but without a true Launcher feature, in Windows this has never
made much sense to me. Back in the day, Windows XP had the Office
Sidebar, which also acted as a Quick Launcher. In Windows 10 I
simply use Quick Access, most often from File Explorer. Also, All
Apps from the Start Menu. But not a vertical Task Bar.

What a Linux Desktop Does Better
The main thing my Unity Desktop doesn't do

Ubuntu Desktop and its Desktop GUI to be more stable than Windows,
except on weird graphics configurations like my old laptop with
hybrid Intel-NVidia graphics. That config. would regularly crash
Unity badly. I find Linux security issues to be understated in

rules and permissions restrictions to keep software from going
rogue. Both approaches are applicable to today's threat
environment. (EMET itself seems to be going away in favor of Group
