     Hi LUGers,
         I was able to get Linux Pro magazine Issue #176.
     Articles on security and on using security tools, a Git tutorial 
for non-programmers
a discussion of LXD, the Canonical container alternative and even an 
article on systemd.

     The distros this month were Debian 8 and Ubuntu 15.04  I have a few 
versions of 'buntus as iso files and disks.  Debian 8 is an install only 
disk and I
looked very carefully at the menus and there is a rescue item but that 
is all
aside from menus.  It has installs for MSB and for UEFI
     So looking for the checksum I found it was up to version 8.1 so 
it I will make a copy of the Debian.  The supplied and downloaded disks are
both multi-architecture and multi-desktops but is mostly older versions 
so that
it is not cutting edge.
     5 years of support may be its best feature.The number of ways to 
has been extended.

     Besides that I have a couple of versions of Linux Mint 17.2 for 32 
and 64 bit
machines both with either Mate or Cinnamon desktop environments.

     I am trying to download 4MLinux-13.iso as i write having gone to 
Distrowatch to
check on the latest.  This is one of the very small but very powerful 
sets of tools to
deal with disk problems and other matters.  4M for Maintenance, Mini-Server,
  Mutilmedia and Mystery(games and puzzles)
It has lots of improvements as far as the publisher is concerned.
     Well that is now copied to my hard disk.

     Hope you can make it on July the Fifth.
