Great Tweaks for PopOs 22.04

Hi everyone, if you are running Linux, chances are you tweak your system, or add utilities here and there. Ever ran that one liner command and rendered your system utterly useless?

I sure have! How can we guard against this? The answer is - Timeshift and the btrf file system!

This past week I came across a GREAT YouTube Video by
Willi Mutschler outlining step by step how to create instantaneous recovery snapshots on PopOs using Timeshift. GREAT Video Willi!

I HIGHLY recommend you check his video out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i8HDHAX1RJc

TimeShift has been such a great tool for me, I also checked out the Owners webpage - and found another great Tweaks Blogpost - specifically where he suggests installing nala, a GREAT improvement to the sudo apt install interface

From his Tony George's Blog (The creator of TimeShift):
Install Nala
Nala is a prettier frontend for APT that makes it easier to install packages from the command line. It has the same syntax as apt. You can substitute the command nala for all commands that use apt.

1)Run the below command to install Nala from it’s official repository.

wget -O - https://teejeetech.com/scripts/jammy/install_nala | bash

2) Switch to the fastest Ubuntu mirrors in your region:
sudo nala fetch

3) Update your system:
sudo nala update && sudo nala upgrade

Hope you find this info useful!
