Hey guys, i have tried to play games (of course i have download WINE), and i tried to run Plant VS Zombies on my ubuntu, it works but had a very worse lag. even more bad, it cannot go to the main menu of the game. How to done this probs?..
Why do my games run so much faster in ubuntu studio with wine?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 13, 2014
Its not so much a problem than a question,im running wine trough playonlinux with the proprietary drivers
for my radeon hd5770,same playonlinux version same wine version same game(Borderlands 1) same installation method and same libraries.
In ubuntu studio 12.04 64bit i get almost full framerate in the game.
In linux mint 16 cinamon i get half the framerate.
In linux mint 16 mate also half the framerate.
In linux mint 16 xfce also half the framerate.(Ubuntu studio also use xfce i think).
I also tried othe distros but i cant remember names as i spent days trying everything i could find,formatting installing configuring...
Does anyone know a reason why i get almost perfect performance out of borderlands(and other games) from U.Studio and almost unplayable framerate in all other distro?

Why are Ubuntu upgrades still so much trouble?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 8, 2011
I wait, and wait and hope someday that Ubuntu would have seamless upgrades.
Upgrades have always been a hassle since day one with Ubuntu.
I'm really tired of it. Why is this still such a problem?
I am finally going to upgrade 8.04 to 10.04 but now I have to go to 9.10 first. And it's taking forever, slow, slow, slow.
Who thought network upgrades would be a good idea? Did they think that they wouldn't have to throttle the server ever?
And so I'm now doing it from CD since I can get the CD much faster. But then I run into other problems, have to go to the forums and read about the workarounds, which sometimes don't work. And these are known bugs just sitting there...
I was doing those same things with upgrades 5 years ago!!
Now it's been 4 hours FROM CD, selected to NOT use the network, so WTF? And it's a 52X CD reader, so it could read the whole 690M several times over in one hour.
Again, why is this such a problem EVERY DAMN TIME I UPGRADE UBUNTU!!!
why do linux programs generally use so much ram?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 19, 2007
i have yet to find a media player that uses up less than 20mb of ram with my music collection, and "isten" was using >60mb. foobar2k however uses just 2mb. utorrent as well, yet most torrent clients in linux use upwards of 10mb
im not trying to attack linux, im genuinely interested why this might be
everything in linux seems to use substantially more ram than its windows equivilent. dont even get me started on nautilus lol.

Why does Vista / 7 takes up so much disk space?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 30, 2012
There's something I would like to understand, guys.
I find it odd that Windows 7 take up so much space on the disk drive!
Today, I desactivated Hibernation mode on Windows 7 (Never use the mode), which free up like 6 GB. And I lowered the virtual memory as well (8,2 Go, are you serious? I've got 8Go of RAM, so why would I need so much SWAP? Linux don't use my small 500MB of SWAP at all!).
But I mainly want to focus on the minimum disk space required for the installation of Windows 7 64-Bits, it takes 20GB minimum.
I think that's way too much, but why? Is there a logical reason?
XP uses 1,5 Go, which is really good. Ubuntu use 4.5/5 Go, and come with all the necessary softwares (LibreOffice, etc..). Why Windows 7 takes like 4 times the disk space of Ubuntu, and come with.. Nothing? XD
I find it huge to jump from 1.5 GB (Windows XP) to 20 GB (Seven) ! Why so much space?
I'm really curious about that.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

As a newbie you should be more open to advice, the first being, it is not wise to use an outdated OS. Many improvements and new drivers get incorporporated with newer versions so it is wise to stay current. Also, you should stay current for security reasons.
If I were you as a newbie I would not start with a distribution that is created for professional security use. It is doubtful being new to Linux that you could use the tools included well. I would recommend an entirely different approach if you are new, like trying Linux Mint, for example.
Why has Ubuntu changed so much?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 20, 2012
My linux revival began around Ubuntu 7.10 and 8.04. Why has it changed so much that it doesn't install on hardware now that it did then? How come it just doesn't look or act the same?
What's a bummer is how when I first got my Dell D630 intel C2D laptop, there were problems with ICH9 and all that. Sometime around 9.10 and 10.04, those same problems came right back...
The desktop I'm on has the realtek 8168 problem that never got fixed and now I try to boot 11.10 and it can't even make video happen. And this is one of the newer 8 thread Xeons, so we're not talking about ancient hardware.
Why does Ubuntu keep working so hard to suck? My desktop is on 9.04 LTS and I've been casually trying other distros (on a spare HDD) in the interim and various other distros manage to boot and install ok. But I really like Ubuntu... been using it so long and I've got so many desktops and servers with it that it's home for me.
But these changes lately make me feel more lost than when kubuntu
Why does Linux download so much faster
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 6, 2003
Why does Linux download so much faster and windows? I did a test and downloaded the same files from the same server while Windows struggles to get a 70-80 kbs download Linux constantly does a 250-270 kbs download and as high as 750 kbs Does anyone know why?
