zim (a wiki) vs other notetakers
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 20, 2009
I have a conceptual question, and the rest is asking for advice on a particular app to choose.
I read that zim is a wiki and gnote is not. What is the difference?
I have been using zim happily as a note taker for about a week now. I am in nusing school and have LOTS of content to cover: drugs, assignments etc. I need a note taking system that:
* allows many-to-many (am I using that term correctly?) relationships btw docs, for example a page for a drug may link to a page for a disease and and page for a symptom and various other combos, rather then forcing it into a hierarchy. This is excellent for note taking in class or from the text because when the prof refers to Drug A (that's totally new to me) treating disease X (that I already have a page for), I can quickly make a link.
* Inserting of simple images. It would be amazing if I could write on them on the fly, or at least annotate them, but that's not a requirement.
* allows shareablilty for my less computer savvy (not th
Ubuntu 12.10 Cinnamon vs Mint 14 Cinnamon

I'm switching from a Mac to Linux and am still in doubt as to which flavour I'm going to be using.
Ubuntu seemed like the obvious choice but after trying out several distros (many of which Ubuntu based) I decided that Mint Cinnamon was going to be it.
Until I found out you can install the Cinnamon desktop on ubuntu. Which I tried.
Hmm. It looks equally nice as it does on Mint but still, I've got the impression it runs just that tiny bit better on Mint (i.e. more fluid - and I tend to ditch something at the first sign of even the slightest hint of 'jerkyness').
Ubuntu would seem like the logical step when coming from a Mac : it's the most popular distro out there and the Unity interface in some ways is very similar to OS X. But, I have to say, I 'dislike' Unity with a passion (not going to use the word 'hate', seems a bit too strong - it was OK I guess in 12.04, terribly slow in 12.10). Mint Cinnamon touched me right away (although I'm currently trying out OpenSuse 12.3 KDE and I must

Just when I was about to install Ubuntu, I had a "why not look at Mint" question thrown at me. The reasons, my friends said, is that the Mint desktop (Cinnamon) is more like Win 7 plus the fact that Ubuntu has "lost its way" like Microsoft did with its illegitimate child Windows 8, in trying to be both Desktop and Tablet Operating System. True or False?
1) I am a Desktop only user - for business, no gaming whatsoever
2) I never have used the Windows Start Button except to shut down the computer. I never start programs from the Start Menu. I Do Not Need a Start Button.
3) I prefer to organize my icons with a program called "Fences"; and would like my Taskbar on the bottom of the screen(s) and absolutely not on the side of the screen
4) I need to network with Win 7 workstations and a file server.
2) Which of the two is faster? Ubuntu or M

Let's compare the latest versions of the two. What are the differences? Real differences, not mint is green. Things related to 64 bit, flash, codecs and other technical distinctions.
Linux Mint Cinnamon vs. Elementary Pantheon
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 20, 2012
Many people are very excited about Linux Mint's Cinnamon. Personally I find it a step back in almost every single way. It looks cluttered, has less customization than gnome2 (or xfce, or kde4, or any other popular non-gnome) and doesn't really have anything special. Unity, whether you like it or not (I do) is definitely different than the standard Linux desktop, Gnome Shell is a similar story. Many people are complaining that these new gnome3 shells, interfaces and forks are plainly bad. So, they think cinnamon will be better with its more classic looks. But I wish people would look at the Elementary Team's Pantheon environment. It is lean, looks very functional, has a nice and good-looking (even if you think it is mac-ish) design and is completely modular! And that is why I am so excited about it. By default it has function and form but you can change and swap out anything you want.
Here is a summery of what the next Elementary OS will be:
Ubuntu 10.10 vs Linux Mint 10
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 23, 2010
I've been looking at reviews for Linux Mint. So far, it sounds pretty good. The one thing I see come up more often is the better driver support is seem to offer over Ubuntu. I've used Linux Mint 9 quite a bit, but only played around with Mint 10 rc for a few days in VB. While I was impressed, it has never really tempted me to switch from Ubuntu. Though I like Mint, I feel far more at home using Ubuntu, so would never give up Ubuntu for it.
What does the community think about the comparison between the two in terms of stability, support, and others?
Linux Ubuntu vs Linux Mint OSs

Pretty much self explanatory, so yea.
Please dont say things like ubuntu looks ugly as it is customizable, or that ubuntu generally uses gnome becuase it can use kde too and that goes for mint as well.
what im looking for is actual performance tests and level of customization.
What are the pros and cons for mint over ubuntu?
personal experiences are welcome but only if they are specific.
btw, this is clearly comparing the latest stable editions.
Browser Performances Ubuntu 12.10 vs Windows 7
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 6, 2013
I've just completed a dual boot installation of Ubuntu 12.10 on my Windows 7 machine. Its an old machine and its currently spec'd as follows:
AMD Phenom X4 965
12GB DD3 RAM
1.5 tb hd 7200 rpm
Radeon HD4870 graphics card (Gallium RV770 driver)
I've ran tests using Microsofts testdrive site:
I've used this bubbles one plus a couple of other ones that shows FPS.
I've ran tests using the following browsers:
Opera 12.x (with hardware acceleration set to 1)
When on Windows 7 (SP1), I get about 40 - 60 FPS for each of the browsers.
However on Ubuntu 12, its totally different. I get something like:
Firefox = 3 - 6 FPS
Opera = 10 - 15 FPS
Chrome = 30 - 35 FPS
Anyone know why these browsers are significantly slower on Ubuntu?
