Symantec asks G4L to stop infringing on Ghost name

Posted by: cgullcharlie on November 02, 2007 02:44 PM
How about 4GL "4 Ghosting Linux" as used in 4GL for "Fourth-Generation-Language". 4GL as an acronym has probably been around longer than Symantec.
Anyway whats the point of using G4L when "dd" does this anyway?, "dd" works, its on just about every platform linux to BSD it works for any partition or filesystem present or future. "dd if=/dev/hda1 of=mybackupfile". Short, easy and sweet. Stuff G4L in the bin so many of these projects do what can easily be done already with all the GNU utils from the command line.
