Best Linux Desktop environment for gaming?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 5, 2013
Hi everyone...So I know that Ubuntu, Debian, and Arch are pretty much the way to go if you want the best gaming support (Steam). However what would be the best DE for gaming, performance wise? I was thinking XFCE but people have been saying KDE and Unity because of something called "unredirect fullscreen windows" and that you can turn off "compositing". People have also stated that XFCE does not have this feature. What are these two things and do they impact FPS in gaming? (Again, what would be your best DE for gaming?)
best linux distro for kids aged 35
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 1, 2005
Hey there everyone-
I'm thinking about putting linux on some old machines to be used by a couple of kids about 4-5 years old. I use Slackware so I can always put that on and set it up manually, but I was wondering if there was any young kids-specific distro, that has an easy DE/WM, all the games and educational stuff installed, easy to use widgets/backgrounds/panels/icons etc. Something that is tailor-made, I guess.
I've googled around a bit but have not found anything specific. I've looked through the distros at distrowatch, and there are several that are education-based, but they are more geared towards running linux in the school and seem focused more on older kids.
Anything out there?
What is the best linux gaming Distro?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 25, 2010
This probably will be a very annoying question for some users, but frankly I don't care.
What is the best for linux; I know windows is ideal but if you mention it I will pulverize you!
I understand that gaming is a shaky subject for ubuntu but bear with me; Oh and mods this isn't a topic for wine as I'm not talking about ubuntu I'm talking about linux/unix os's in general.
Again, What is the most versatile gaming linux os; not just for windows games but all games in general?

Best Linux distribution for me?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 25, 2009
What do you think is the best Linux distro for me?
The specifications of what I will be running it on:
2.6ghz Pentium 4 HT (soon to be 3.2ghz)
768mb RAM (will upgrade gradually to 4GB)
32mb nVidia Riva TNT AGP card
Integrated AC'97 Audio
Intel Pro 1000GT Ethernet PCI card
What I want to be able to do:
Use blackbox/fluxbox as window manager
Set up file sharing fairly easily (and be able to install Netatalk)
General Web Browsing/Chat
Other than that, there is nothing else that I need to use this computer for. I want the distro to be as quick as possible, and I also do not want to be shielded from using root if I have to. I would like it to be stable too, and have packages that take virtually no effort to install.
best linux distro?
location: linux.com - date: March 6, 2011
right now I'm running ubuntu 10.04, but there's so many things that don't work. I have an nvidia gforce gt240 video card, and I've tried countless times to install it, but it just never works. I also have tried to install starcraft 2 a couple times with no success. I have starcraft one installed but even that doesn't work sometimes. my question is, is there a better linux OS that's more compatible with things?
The Three Best Linux Media Centers

I thought ubuntuforums folks might like this article. (Also hopefully this is not a double post / as I accidentally posted in howto section which is held and should be rejected)

Digg it: http://digg.com/linux_unix/The_Three..._Media_Centers
Let me first start off by saying that someone is likely going to be very angry at me for omitting program x, y, z or Miro. Please express that anger in the comments below. The three media centers I list are my favorites. All of them integrate easily with MythTV by adding a simple menu item, and each work greats with remotes and looks good on your TV. MythTV itself might qualify in this category. However, I find Myth makes a good OS (mythbuntu) and PVR (with a great web interface), but I think it is fairly awful at organizing your media and playing web vids. So, I leave it out of the media center category. I personally run a Mythbuntu system with the following three media centers in
Best Linux OS To Use
location: linux.com - date: March 21, 2011
I have an old laptop with Win 95 OS on it. It has a Pentium 2 chip and somewhere around 196 RAM. I am passing it on to a friend to use strictly as an e-mail checker and document creator in locations with WiFi networks. The network card that has been suggested to use is a D-link which runs about $30. The card requires at least Win 2000 OS to run. It has been suggested to me that I go to a Linux OS instead and just use Google docs on G-mail to minimize the amount of memory that is being used for programs. Which Linux OS would work best to do this. I think my friend suggested either VectorLinux or PuppyLinux might work. Thnx for your help.
