Lenovo U410 vs Ubuntu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 26, 2012
I just purchased a Lenovo U410 and would like to dual boot with Ubuntu or Slackware.
Has anyone had problems installing/running Ubuntu (or any distro) on this hardware with a hybrid drive?
Thanks in advance for any advice/suggestions.
32bit vs 64bit Ubuntu 13.10 trying to install 64bit on a Lenovo Thinkcenter M92 pc
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 25, 2013
I've been trying to install 64-bit Ubuntu 13.10 on a Lenovo ThinkCentre M92 pc and it just will not work. I'm getting the error message error 1962 no operating system found. I've Googled this issue and believe it has something to do with UEFI and I have tried all the fixes that I can find online, but still, no luck.
I'm at a point where I may return to Windows, heaven forbid.
As a last ditch effort, would anyone know, can you load 32-bit Ubuntu 13.10 on a M92? I'm just wondering what determines whether you install 32-bit or 64-bit? I went with 64-bit only because this is a very new machine and I suspect the chipset would support it, but is it backward compatible?
Ubuntu 13.10 vs 14.04 for a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Laptop?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 20, 2014
I just picked up a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro laptop today and want to install Ubuntu on it. I intend to dual boot for the moment with Windows 8.1 and will try to maintain the secure boot setup. As some of you probably already know the laptop is cutting edge with features such as a 3200 x 1800 screen resolution, backlit and touchscreen, and a "laptop to tablet folding behavior" which has created an endless number of issues for early adopters wishing to install Ubuntu or other Linux distros on it.
I normally never install alpha software on a machine but was thinking about it on this machine since the newer kernel and modules may allow better handling of cutting edge hardware. I realize that I will be installing alpha software and will avoid doing any mission critical work on the machine. I will also maintain a separate home partition in case I need to downgrade the install or rescue user data.
So 14.04 or 13.10 for this machine?
Ubuntu 12.10 Cinnamon vs Mint 14 Cinnamon
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 1, 2013
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?
