Lowcost tablet compatible with ubuntu (or even android)?
- date: July 1, 2010
Is there a tablet in existence fitting these specifications:
>600 pixels vertical resolution preferably
Atom or better
touch screen compatible with ubuntu or android
can be connected to standard usb or bluetooth keyboard
If so I really would like one; it does sound like they're coming out soon (with multi-touch ubuntu and the new android tablets) but for now I need a new high-end laptop and having a device like this could mean that I don't care as much about the laptop's weight and battery life, saving me hundreds of dollars; I don't want to buy a heavy laptop with 2 hr battery life and then discover this doesn't work nine months later.
Ubuntu or Windows 7 for virtual labs
- date: June 12, 2012
Before I ask my question, I understand I am in a linux forum and most likely everyone answer will be Linux over windows, but I hope whoever answers has an appreciation for both OS.
At work and at home I mostly use Windows 7 and Server 2008. I am working on a lot of security stuff like penetration testing. I have a workstation I build (2TB HD, 12GB RAM, Quad AMD Processorů) that I use for testing. The workstation had server 2008 and I was using Hyper-V to host my labs. There were some issues and I wiped and installed Windows 7 with VirtualBox for my labs. I like this setup better.
Most of my testing are tested using Linux like BackTrack but also use it to test new products and use it when I get certified in Microsoft products. I am familiar with Linux but not as much as I would like to be.
So, to my question/s.
Should I keep windows 7 as my host for my labs and Install Ubuntu as a virtual and get familiar with Linux or should I install Ubuntu and have Ubuntu ho

[SOLVED] Ubuntu Or CentOS For A Home Server?
- date: May 27, 2013
I have been using CentOS as a home server OS for a while now, I like it a lot, it is very secure and I've learned how to use the root command to get things done, etc. The problem with CentOS though is that their packages are very old/outdated (considered stable for some reason) and I often run into problems setting up some progrmas such as Samba. The good thing though is that it has the iptables firewall and SELinux, which I see as extra security. Another good thing I like is that you need root permission to mount other hard drives (I have one as a backup so that has to be safe). Ubuntu however doesn't have any of these, so is it a lot less secure? I understand I can install a firewall into Ubuntu, I would like to install the same one that CentOS uses if that's possible, however I've tried installing SELinux before...it disabled my Internet.
So what should I do? Id like to switch, but is Ubuntu less secure than because it doesn't have those 2 things CentOS does? Some distros have SE
is this ubuntu or xubuntu and what is going on?
- date: December 8, 2012
First up, I'm clueless so be gentle
A few years ago i installed (what i believe) was Xubuntu on my PC as a dual boot with windows , just to play around with it.
It didn't take long to figure out that all i do is browse the web and not much esle, so i used either as the fancy took me.
A while ago i had a notification that i had updates available and i downloaded them.
Update was to 12.04 lts and since then i have no main menu, nothing happens on the top panel except the name of the app running and the option to close/minimise it. (top right still has updates, envelope icon, volume, user and shut dowm).
There is an 'alacarte' menu down the left side but it has limited options.
Anyways, i let it go as i didn't need terminal or anything else but now my son wants to play online games and i don't want him doing it on windows, and want to set up his own user id so he won't screw mine up but i can't do a thing with this OS at all
I went to a Xubuntu help live forum and they recon it must
[SOLVED] Stay with Ubuntu or move to Arch?
- date: May 28, 2012
Hey y'all. I have a question for everyone. Its been on my mind for awhile now. I have been thinking of moving from Ubuntu to Arch. I started with Ubuntu 4 years ago. A year later I started programming. All I actually do on my Linuxbox is program, search the internet. Which is mostly to learn something about programming or Linux. I mostly use the command line for everything. I would say 50% is command line use and the other 50 is the internet.
So, since I only use my box to develop, what would you suggest I do? What would be best for me? In your opinion of course. Thanks.
Ubuntu or Gentoo?
- date: May 17, 2006
I'm a user of Ubuntu, and it seems quite fine, but I've been reading that users of Gentoo are saying performance on it excells from other distributions because all the packages are built from source code. I was just wondering if this is true because Ubuntu does seem choppy at times even though my hardware shouldn't pose a problem because it is up to date.
UBUNTU or CentOS
- date: August 25, 2011
I asked someone at customer support a question about which DVD to order and he recommended that I go with CentOS if I'm planning on getting a job with Linux in the future. So I'm guessing CentOS is an operating system like UBUNTU is an operating system. My question is why don't I see anything about it in the forums below when you can select all the other operating systems to talk about (Kubuntu, Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, etc.)?
[SOLVED] What would be better choice: ubuntu or red hat?

As I'm looking forward to learn python and app developing, I'm a bit confused between ubuntu and Red Hat..
Should I install Ubuntu or Backtrack first?
- date: August 14, 2012
I am planning on having a triple boot setup on my laptop with Windows 7 (soon 8), Ubuntu, and Backtrack. I have read up on setting up dual and triple boot systems, and it seems like some operating systems like to replace the existing GRUB with their own bootloader. Both Backtrack and Ubuntu use GRUB for multi-boot installations. Does it matter what order I install them in? Right now the computer only has Windows on it.
