Edubuntu desktop vs Ubuntu educational bundles
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 6, 2013
My five year old son loves playing with Ubuntu and can navigate around 12.04 pretty well. I understand there is an education derivative edubuntu and I also see there are educational bundles for download.
What are the pros and cons for each?

Getting school to let me use Ubuntu/Edubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 19, 2008
I've always wanted to use Ubuntu (or Edubuntu) at school, and next quarter is computer classes. I really want to use Ubuntu/Edubuntu during times that don't require Windows (the computers either run 2000 or XP, and meet the specs for Ubuntu/Edubuntu to run smoothly. The main problem is our new teacher doesn't show that she knows much besides the best way to type and Office programs, and something tells me when I ask her, she'll not know what Linux is, yet alone Ubuntu/Edubuntu, though thats where my Ubuntu learning book comes in. Actually my old computer teacher (who is now the Network Administrator or whatever its called) is probably the only one who knows anything about Linux.
Does anyone have any tips that might help me convince them? note:I don't mind using live CD
(As of now, I can't reach the teacher besides E-mail because of my schedule, and I'm in middle school).
Ubuntu vs. Kubuntu vs. Xubuntu vs. Edubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 6, 2011
I have a big question:
I've been hearing a lot about other types of Ubuntu.
E.g. Ubuntu (itself), Xubuntu, etc.
But What is the point? Why not just use the original. I've tried Kubuntu and find that the only reasonable replacement. And that is just to have Ubuntu slow but look pretty. Is there any other use of Kubuntu? And what are the perks to Xubuntu and Edbuntu ? I mean what's the point of Xubuntu ? And how is Edbuntu suited to educational purposes?
Hello again, World!
I'd appreciate any kind of feedback.
Red Hat/Fedora Vs Ubuntu For My Career Use
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 5, 2008
I want to work with GNU/Linux for the rest of my life, and I want to know which distro will help me in the future. I really like Ubuntu, but if getting Red Hat certified will make me more money/give me a better understanding of what companies want on their servers I will learn that.
So, any professionals out there? What did you learn and make money off of?
Oh just for clarification, I would like to focus my skills in networking, whether it be in a local or world wide sense.
Let's not turn this into a bashing thread. Keep it professional.
HOWTO Use Ubuntu As A Mac OS X Time Capsule
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 17, 2013
In past versions of Mac OS X, the built in backup tool, Time Machine was a lot less picky about where you back up your files to. You could even back up to a Samba file share if you enabled the "unsupported volumes" hack.
defaults write com.apple.systempreferences TMShowUnsupportedNetworkVolumes 1
But that ended with Snow Leopard. Starting with the release of OSX 10.7 Lion, Apple started cinching down on where you could back up your system to, ostensibly for security reasons. Now, with Mac OS X 10.8 "Mountain Lion", it's gotten to the point where essentially the only places you can back up your system using Time Machine are either on another Mac OS X File Server or on an Apple Time Capsule. My assumption is that their intent is merely to bolster their hardware sales.
I don't know too many people who stay exclusively within the "walled garden" for all their computing needs. Certainly people with a lot more money to burn than me.
Ubuntu Linux & Windows 7 Dual Boot or just use Windows in a Virtual Machine?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 11, 2013
I'm looking at making the switch from a laptop with Windows 7 to one with Ubuntu Linux (my HP Pavilion is dying a slow but unrepairable hardware death) but I have a couple programs I'm probably going to have to run with Windows. A few games I'd like to keep but mostly my Scrivener novel writing program that only has a glitchy beta version for Linux, plus I already own the Windows version and can put it on a second machine. Disclaimer: I've never actually used Linux. At all. But because I frequently have to live off public WiFi due to travel, I'd rather have something more secure, and nothing makes a writer swear more than having to do a hard restart in the middle of a chain of thought because of a freeze.
I'm looking at a System 76 Pangolin Performance laptop which comes with Ubuntu installed. I can get a legit copy of Windows 7 relatively inexpensively. So my questions are: 1) Do I need dual boot? Or will most things run ok in a virtual machine? Since my writing program integrates
[SOLVED] should i use fedora or centos
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 23, 2012
I have a dedicated server, and I'm not liking the ubuntu 11.04 on it.
I'm looking at putting fedora on it, but i read somewhere that centos is better for server?
the server will host one domain only (lamp). no file server nor mail ect.
however i used centos before and found it lacked a lot of packages. I use ssh, and have no desktop. So desktop differences do not apply to me.
If centos is better than fedora, I'll use that inspite of the limited packages available. However if there's not much difference, I'm leaning toward fedora.
any thoughts? (im looking at fedora15 and centos6)
