School Project What is better for Home use, Windows Vista or Linux Ubuntu?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 26, 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
Windows vs Linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 15, 2013
Just received a Micro Center flyer in the mail. I carefully looked for computers that had other than Windows or Mac OSes preinstalled. It was pretty pathetic since I found only 1 and that was a Chrome Book.
Windows 8 isn't popular, but M$ has a marketing genius (or a real heavy hand ) since HP & Dell (2 prominent manufactures in the flyer) sell their system with Ubuntu Linux installed.
Ubuntu/Lubuntu 12.10 or Linux Mint 14 XFCE for an older computer?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 1, 1970
This is kind of a fun question for you guys, I have a old/decent computer I found, it's an HP Workstation xw4200 or something. It has a Pentium 4 3.5ghz, 4GB of memory ( upgraded) and the hard drives surprisingly use SATA, I also put in a Geforce GT 220. This computer is for my mom who isn't too great with computers so remember that I would like a distro that is simple to use.
It has win7 right now and it's pretty damn fast so I need a Linux distro that's probably faster than how it's operating now to convince my mother (as she'a always used Windows).
Ubuntu is probably the most user friendly distro out there as well that it is fast and stable so I would like to put Ubuntu on it, however since the PC is a bit old I would like to squeeze in as much performance as I can and I was thinking of Linux Mint 14 with XFCE. Which do you think is better? OH ALSO, or would Lubuntu also be a good or better choice?
Ubuntu, the Windows of Linux. Page 3

Windows 7 users didn't get any audio drivers rammed down our throats. The UAA and the WDDM driver was the default audio stack. If you had drivers that used the GX extensions written into DirectX 10/11 (example: C-Media Oxygen HD based cards) you had full DirectSound acceleration in hardware, if not it was done via the CPU (software accelerated).
Windows XP got rammed with the UAA drivers though.
As for Ubuntu's wanting to be the next Microsoft of Linux, maybe they should consult Red Hat and SuSE in how it's done, or better yet... become the next SCO. Boy did SCO become the Microsoft of Linux, BSD, and UNIX. They were even hated more than Bill Gates, which is a feet rarely accomplished.
Windows inside linux+C2D T6500 doesn't support hardware VT
location: linux.com - date: October 3, 2009
I am new user of ubuntu and would like to use windows inside linux using some worthwhile VT tools like virtualbox or Vmware. The problem is that my processor is core 2 duo T6500 and from its updated specifications it doesnâ€šÃ„Ã´t support hardware virtualization!. Does that mean I cannot use VT at all ??. In some website its said that without hardware VT, 64bit OSs cannot be virtual guests, does that mean I can have 32 bit OS guests. I plan to use ubuntu 9.04 64 bit ( jaunty jackalope) and any windows OS (XP or more; 32 bit or 64 bit plz guide)..
Any help is appreciated

Kubuntu, Xubuntu, or Linux Mint? Questions.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 14, 2011
I'm having some issues with Ubuntu at the moment, so I wanted to know, is there a website or a thread that shows the pros and cons of these operating systems?
Also, does Kubuntu or Xubuntu or Linux Mint run GIMP okay?
Can programs made for Ubuntu be run in Kubuntu or Xubuntu or Linux Mint?
How buggy are each of these operating systems?
Thank you very very much for any info sent my way!! I'm in serious need of info. :\
Linux Ubuntu/Kubuntu... or Linux Mint?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 30, 2011
I just want to know which would be easier to learn and which you prefer. I've heard someone say that people who are new to Linux should start off with Linux Mint, but I started off with Ubuntu 10.10, I didn't like the GUI too much, but I like Kubuntu's GUI, it's awesome, or maybe it's because it's so identical to my current Primary OS, Windows 7. Another question, why is it that the two are so similar? They have similar features, but Linux seems to have more. Basically, right now I'm only using Windows 7 because of gaming and the fact that certain school software won't run on Linux, like Carnegie Online Learning. I checked the Notepad it left behind and it said "Is.Mac = False, Is.OSX = False, Is.Windows = True" and there was none for Linux, so I assume that I'm not missing any plug-ins to run it.
Cinnamon Choice Ubuntu or Linux Mint?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 14, 2012
I have been playing with Cinnamon on Linux Mint 12 in parallel w/ my production 11.04. I have decided Cinnamon is pretty good for me. However should I install Ubuntu 12.04 and cinnamon via PPA or wait a bit and install the LinuxMint equivalent of 12.04 with Cinnamon. I am leaning towards Ubuntu 12.04 with the PPA. It seems like maintenance and documentation might be better and more timely. Any opinions?
