How can I make a file or folder I just created hidden (in Windows) while I am booted into Linux? Basically I'm dual booting linux and windows. I want to create a file/folder in my common data partition that I want to stay hidden in both Windows and Linux.
I will name it something like .secret_stuff so that it's hidden in Linux.
I am making this new thread because the old "becuase shiny things are funs new windows vs linux" thread is ricululy large and out of date. Also it s not just linux vs windows, but any other os that is alive and by that I mean it still has a user base and recigves new updates or releases. For example linux vs ecomestation and linux vs osx.
Linux has made some serious headway over the past decade, elevating itself from “that open source operating system” to “wow, this thing is actually usable!” There’s been a gentle but definite trickle of users away from Windows toward the freer option of Linux and maybe you’re thinking about making that leap.
Escape from Windows to Linux and begin your journey with open source software, or learn all about the educational Kano for Raspberry Pi. With collected mumbling on Twitter, Windows XP finally took its final beath. Or at least, its security support stopped. Where to go from there though?
I am trying to connect to a mysql database on a windows server from linux. I don't have much experience working with Windows at all, especially windows server. How do I go about making a connection to the mySQL database from Linux?
I've installed Ubuntu on a PC with Windows 7. Now since I want to make that PC a VPN server under Ubuntu I've made the login require no password (Windows still has a password). This makes it easy for anyone to see my Windows files. Can I make them inaccessible (and not visible) from Ubuntu. Sort of like making Ubuntu and Windows two separate systems with their own files on the same hard drive.
