(Solved) 32GB of RAM, Whats best way to optimize it for Linux.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 22, 2012
I have decided on purchasing 32GB of DDR3-1600 for my new system. Its going to be Corsair Vengeance 1.35v DRAM. Its going pretty cheap right now for around 100-120 bucks here in the US with tax and all. So I want to take advantage of the low pricing and since the new mobo has Quad Channel support. I wanted to find the best way to make the most use of the RAM. This is something I never tried before since I never had ram to spare.
Decided to go with just 16GB for my box, but still would love to here any optimization solutions that you do..

[SOLVED] Best Books for Learning Linux?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 6, 2013
What are some of the best books one can use to learn Linux? (I'm particularly interested in learning Linux in shell mode, and how to modify kernels.) I'm a complete newbie to this, so simpler (but comprehensive) books are best. THANKS!
Which version of Ubuntu / Lubuntu would be best? (newbie linux user)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 19, 2013
I have an old windows xp laptop that i want to try out Linux on - the laptops main roles will be watching mpeg vids, listening to mp3s and web surfing, with some occasional light office use - the machine itself is a dual core pentium Lenovo laptop, with one gig of RAM - I've tried a couple of live cds out on my Windows 7 laptop - Ubuntu 13.04 and Lubuntu 12.04.03 lxle - on the newer laptop they both work easily well - my question is....... are the specs of the older machine good enough to run Ubuntu?..... or, should I go for the Lubuntu lxle which advertises itself as suitable for older machines?.... or is there another variant of ubuntu which would fit the bill better?
Best Linux distro for optimize battery consumption (Asus EeePC)
location: linux.com - date: March 28, 2013
I'm very new here and I'm not sure if here is the proper site to post this question (I apologize if not).
I've using linux for a couple of years (Mint) trying to move from windows to Linux. I've an old Asus Eeepc 1005HAB with XP and I've installed LinuxMint Isadora (Gnome) with dual boot. I'm really really happy with the performance of the system, but the problem is that the battery consumption is very hard: with windows the battery last more than 2 hours, but in Linux it hardly reach the 90 minutes (without using video and/or audio). It's truly annoying because I really DO LIKE LINUX!!!
I've investigated several solutions. For example, moving to LXDE I've noted a drastic increase in battery life, especially when using powernowd to configure processes and eeepc applet (don't sure if jupiter and eeepc applet obstaculizes each other).
But I'm thinking about moving to a distro that be focused in optimizing the battery use, mainly by including built-in kernel configurations a
best Linux for architects
location: linux.com - date: March 12, 2012
I am an architect in a small firm that barely manages, and I'm trying to avoid costly CAD software by switching to cheaper and free programs and applications. I never considered Linux before because AutoCAD - the main drafting program - hasn't been known to work on Linux.
However, things change dramatically since I've tried to work in DraftSight and decided to test out several other linux-compatible alternatives. ( http://www.osalt.com/autocad )
I would like to try switching to Linux now and have the following questions:
1. Which Linux distribution works best with graphic-intensive software? (supports graphic cards - although not the highest end)
2. Which Linux distribution would you recommend for me as a user? - I have never used Linux or DOS, but I've had to learn at least a dozen complex drafting programs in the last decade, I used to be able to write HTML and use other people's PHP scripts too. I'm prepared to take a few months to test it and get used to it.
Grateful for ans

Best Linux magazine?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 3, 2007
There are lots in the UK but theyre very expensive, I think Linux Format is £6.50!! I can imagine that they arent very good either, DVD included or not.
Im intrigued by Linux Journal as it seems to be informative and good value for money.
Is there a particular Linux mag thats the one to buy?
