ARM Chromebook 13.04 Ubuntu, Xubuntu, or Lubuntu? why?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 15, 2013
Ok so I am thinking of trying to install ubuntu on my arm chromebook when the final 13.04 versions release later this month. I know that there is *supposed to be increased support for the hardware for the 13.04 release (any thoughts on that?). Now my question is this (I am kind of a newbie so bare with me), is there going to be any major differences in support or the installation process for Ubuntu, Xubuntu, or Lubuntu? If the answer is no, then which version would you all recommend? I currently use Xubuntu on a parallels VM and have been very happy with it, but considering the lower system resources of the samsung arm chromebook I am thinking that Lubuntu may be a better alternative. Then again the 12.10 version of the standard Ubuntu release already ran pretty snappy on this hardware according to multiple sources.
So basically thats the question, which version of 13.04 would you install on a Samsung ARM Chromebook... Ubuntu, Xubuntu, or Lubuntu?
in case youre wondering, my require
minimal ubuntu + xfce vs xubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 6, 2011
I am a minimalist when it comes down to IT and a functionality enthusiast.
Therefore - combined with the fact that i want the most speed out of my new SSD, which also has not much space - i am sure that i want to use xfce as my desktop environment (for my notebook)
Advantages of minimal ubuntu + xfce compared to xubuntu:
-) minimalistic install: from the start on there are only programs running that i want and i can control every library (and etc) that is being installed (therefore: no space is wasted and i have total control over my system)
-) all the advantages of ubuntu: drivers, updates, community, flexibility, support, et cetera
Disadvantages of minimal ubuntu + xfce compared to xubuntu:
-) it seems .... "complicated" is not the term i am looking for.. you could call it "unnecessary work" to decide from scratch about every application....
That's how far i got with my train of thought about this.
I really would like your opinions about this and if you thin
Ubuntu Vs Red Hat
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 19, 2011
Ive tried both Red Hat 5.0 and Ubuntu.
Ive heard Red Hat is more robust and secure, although I dont see how I can go back to red hat once that Im so used to Ubuntu 10.04+ (Currently 11.04)
People still say Red Hat is the leader, all servers in red hat..
Is it true..
If so, why?
Red Hat vs Ubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 8, 2007
I'm about to make a choice between servers and I need an honest, UNBIASED opinion. Which Linux is better for server software, Red Hat or Ubuntu. Right now I know the layout of Ubuntu and its free. But redhat seems to know what it is doing and its only $80(I say only $80 because I think of the cost of servers for Mac and Windows).
So what should I go with? Red Hat or Ubuntu. What are the real pros and cons.
Advice with installation Ubuntu Vs Redhat Vs Fedora?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 26, 2011
I have a server at godaddy on Red Hat Fedora Core 8 and I want to set up a home server for development and backups for the live server.
The server i bought for home use is set up for RAID usage. I want the server to mirror the harddrives so whatever i do on one is saved on the other too. There was a step in the setup where it asks to partition the drives It asks if I want to LVM the drives with or without encryption or just partition the whole thing.
Realistically the ultimate goal of my home server is to have 2 or 3 people working from their macs and code on the server so we can test how the live server would react without uploading it to the live server. We will use version tracker.
Anyone have any advice or instructions on how to install? And whether or not I have to buy the Red Hat license or according to info provided I should use the Fedora project version?
Ubuntu Karmic vs Redhat 5.4 as Xen dom0
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 3, 2010
I'm looking to consolidate a couple of windows boxes and some linux machines on to one piece of hardware using Xen.
I investigated using Karmic, but when I started reading the docs I was a little dismayed to learn you need to bring over a Debian kernel with Xen support. Should I be using Hardy for a production Xen server?
RHEL 5.4 has a Xen kernel on the cd. I prefer a more open distro but should I be considering Redhat? I know this is an Ubuntu forum but I expect to get unbiased answers!
Package names on Ubuntu vs Redhat
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 7, 2008
I am trying to install Merak mail server on Ubuntu server 8.04-1. The problem is that Merak is certified for RH5/4 so installing Merak on Ubuntu needs a little extra effort to work. I am trying to install the following libraries and dependencies, but the naming convention seems a bit different on Redhat than that of Ubuntu. Can someone please enlighten me on how I find the equivalent packages on Ubuntu? Where do I start?
CPU - PC 486
Memory - 64MB RAM
Linux kernel 2.4.x and higher
glibc library 2.2.x and higher
No other modules are required to be installed.
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.

What is the difference between Suse and Ubuntu?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 17, 2011
I installed Ubuntu a month ago (first time linux user). Today I was browsing my school's (free) available software list and SUSE Linux Enterprise was listed there.
Is SUSE essentially a competitor of Ubuntu? What are the main differences between the two?
