Help figuring out: NAS, FreeNas, Linux "NAS", or Linux server
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 8, 2015
Hey all, not sure what forum this might belong in, but I'm trying to figure out the "right" solution for my home situation.
Currently I have a decently beefy Ubuntu 14.04 server built. It's got a ridiculous 12TB of data storage (I was going to try and software raid, but with an EFI mobo, I was having huge issues and gave up). It's got 16GB of RAM (DDR3 something or other). It's got an i5-3470.
It's used for just about everything in my house.
- I run MythTV from over the air signals, so it grabs, records, encodes, and stores loads of TV and movies (about 1TB worth currently, but varies between .5TB and 3TB as I delete or don't delete things).
- I run usenet grabbers and recorders to get the shows that didn't record properly
- It's a minecraft server for some friends and I
- It's a web server where I do a lot of project development for my side business of web / software development
- It's a C++ build / Java build server for the same
- It's a simple storage d
School Project What is better for Home use, Windows Vista or Linux Ubuntu?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 25, 2009
I am currently compiling a report on whether Ubuntu or Vista is more suitable for home use.
I would like some feedback form the Ubuntu community, on their thoughts and views are on this matter. I need this feedback for primary research for my report. This is an assessed peice of work.
I will be placing some quotes from your feedback onto my report, and i will send a portion of this report to the people who submit feedback. Thanks for ny feedback anyone puts forward.
The sections I will be writing about will be:
Installation of Software Applications
Different Computer Architectures
Different Computer Filesystems
You may judge what "Home use" may mean, such as Gaming, Word Processing, or even advanced home use, such as software developing, 64bit computing, or even home servers, so obviously Linux will be better for some aspects for home use. Again,
thsnks for any feed back.
This will be a

I have 3 WD drives in my array (RAID 0), 2 greens and 1 black. I don't have any issues with them spinning down. Once in a great while there is a split second delay loading a large directory. I feel the array has a decent speed to it:

Does Virtual box (windows) use Linux or Windows hardware drivers?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 19, 2010
So.....I am assuming that if you are connected to the internet in Linux you will be using the LINUX drivers for your wireless card, not the windows drivers for wireless, correct?
What about audio drivers? When does virtual box use Linux hardware drivers and when does it require that you install the drivers to your virtual box windows?
Which server can I decide for MySQL, windows or Unix/Linux/Ubuntu/Debian?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: May 19, 2009
I'm working on a SaaS project and mysql is our main database. Our applications is written on c# .net and runs under an windows 2003 server.
Considering maintainance, cost, options and performance, which server plattaform can I decide for MySQL hosting, windows or Unix/Linux/Ubuntu/Debian?
The scenario is as following:
The server I run today has a modarate transaction volume. Databases increase 5MB daily and we expect to increase 50MB in couple of months and it is mission critical.
I don't know how big the database is going to be. We rent a VPS to host application and database server.
Most of our queries are simple but our ORM Tool makes constantly use of subqueries. Also we run reports simple and heavy ones. Some them runs after user click, but most runs in order to the queue.
Buy an extra co-lo space will be nice as we got more clients. That's SaaS project after all.
Java Memory with Windows 7 or Linux
location: linuxexchange.com - date: April 22, 2015
I have installed 6GB ram on my Windows and 5GB memory free space and when I run a Java program with specifying Java heap space -Xmx2048m It's working fine. My question is, what if I have this on my Linux box
MemTotal: 10.130464 kB (10.1gb)
MemFree : 248.736 kB (248mb)
What will happen if I run the Java program with -Xmx2048m in Linux with this memory?
Why the programs which run on Windows don't run or MAC or Linux [closed]
location: linuxexchange.com - date: October 4, 2012
If the compiler converts the high level language (like C++, for example) to the machine code to be executed by the Microprocessor.
Why can't the programs which run on Windows run on Mac or Linux?
