Would you prefer a laptop with ubuntu or an ibook with OSX ?
For me money is an issue so I've never worked with one.
nano vs vi
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 4, 2007
Why do people love vi so much?
I just tried it. I've never used a less straight forward text editor. What is it used for, and why it is so loved when there are easier editors like nano available? Maybe vi is more featureful?
I wish more distros would come with vi and nano.
MacOS vs. Linux
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 8, 2003
Thinking of buying a notebook, and just want to ask for some advices here.
What do you guys think? An Apple Laptop or a "normal laptop" (sorry but I dunno how to state it...) with linux on it?
Here are some points to think about:
1. I haven't used mac before so would like to learn about it.
2. MacOS X is based on BSD(?), which is a UNIX-based OS.
3. I know there is a distro, yellow dog which runs on a mac, but do I still need linux if MacOS is a UNIX-based OS?
Thanks for the advices.
Please correct me if I did any mistakes.

sockaddrin and sockaddr
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 1, 2004
Ok, I'm writing a simple client server program to do a CRC check on a file the client is going to send. Just one transfer and it's done.. So I set out and wrote them both almost at the same time (since they are similar with the exception of a few functions) and I get an error when I compiler the server in two places where I send a data type sockaddr_in to a function and then try to bind or accept (happens in both functions). Here is my program:
QT vs GTK+
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 1, 2012
I got stuck in a question, need your suggestions.
I am a C programmer but not expert yet. I wish to start learning GUI programming. I got 2 option QT & GTK+, both have pros and cons. people says the QT is the best but GTK+ is widely used, so I got confused.
For future perspective which one should I select to start?
If I select GTK because it is widely used in these days, then I found that QT was developed later than GTK, that's why GTK was used. if this is true, after a few years, we may see QT apps over GTK apps if it is really better.
Guide me what should I do?
What are the advantages/disadvantages of using systemd versus sysvinit?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 16, 2012
Was looking into this, and I'm still confused as to why a stable init toolkit is being replaced with one that isn't as well known and trusted, so readily by Linux distributors.
If sysvinit isn't broken and is only marginally slower, why replace it much less any other working init system that isn't broken? It's like trying to fix something that doesn't need fixing.
What are the REAL advantages of systemd, and not just stuff from gossip and hearsay, mis-advertisements, and over-speculation, and what are the REAL advantages of continuing in using sysvinit or even BSDinit and Upstart?

Super multimedia software for Ubuntu
location: linux.com - date: February 6, 2010
During the last 1-2 months that I'm using Ubuntu side by side of Windows 7, to replace it with windows, I've found a few lacks in Ubuntu, but here's the most important one:
It lacks a powerful multimedia software, as for example "Jet Audio" or "The KM Player" in windows.
is there any software that much powerful for Ubuntu linux?
If so, I'd be glad to know, and to know where to download.
ThanX so much.
Update to Mountain Lion
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 26, 2012
Hi guys, what are you experience updating OSX to Mountain Lion for dual booted setups? I've got a dual booted iMac with 12.04 and osx 10.6. I went thru quite some pain to get it up running, and I wonder if ML is worth the hazzle.
