tput, disk wipers, boot managers

tput – initialize a terminal or query terminfo database

Send your cursor to a specific point on the screen:

tput cup 4 47

There’s lots of other goodness, like clearing the screen.

Disk wipers

  • Autoclave 
  • DBAN – Darik’s Boot and Nuke – I’ve used it before, and it’s pretty good

Boot Managers

  • GAG – Graphical Boot manager
  • gujin
  • btmgr – Smark BootManager
