Ubuntu V Windows
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 20, 2013
I have been using Ubuntu for about 2 years now and it has become my preferred operating system running on one server (music and films 6Tb) and two laptops.
I still use Windows on my media centre computer that drives my home theatre as I like WMC and My Movies also I rip DVD using Any DVD which will only run on Windows.
What I cannot understand is with Windows operating systems you have to de-frag the hard drive to keep it running smoothly but Linux all you need to do is delete the old Kernels after upgrades; so Linux is much easer to maintain can anyone explain to my why you donít need to de-frag Linux?
ubuntu vs. windows

Most of the threads that are started on most subjects seem to deal mostly on the
technical aspect of computers; ie: how to solve this problem or rectify something else. All of which is very helpful and appreciated, however i wanted to address
something of a more philosophical nature, namely ubuntu versus windows.
As an operating system i like my ubuntu however i am disappointed in that i was
expecting and hoping that ubuntu could replace windows entirely. Unfortunately this
has not proven to be the case, mainly because of the lack of good third party software
that is compatible with a linux system. My experience using wine or crossover to run
windows applications has been frustrating and time wasting. I simply see no alternative but to use a dual boot system, using windows to run windows specific apps. and ubuntu
for everything else. I appreciate your thoughts on this subject.

Red Hat (Fedora) vs Debian (Ubuntu)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 10, 2008
Okk, red hat is rpm based package management, and debian uses apt and .deb. Debian and Red Hat are server (mainly) with Ubuntu (yes I know its a totally different project based on debian, but could be considered the user friendly debian) and Fedora the desktop equivilants. So, what is the real differnces, cos im really confused. Had most experiance with Debian based systems through Ubuntu mainly. DOes the IT inductry use red hat/fedora though and how do the usability of both the command line and GUI really differ?
Any thoughts - begin the flame!
