LXer: Nouveau vs. NVIDIA Linux vs. NVIDIA Windows 8.1
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 31, 2013
Published at LXer:
A few days back I delivered benchmark results of a 13-way graphics card comparison comparing the OpenGL gaming performance between Ubuntu Linux and Microsoft Windows 8.1. In that article there were multiple AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards tested using the binary drivers for each operating system. On Wednesday I then shared results with the Radeon Gallium3D driver compared to Catalyst on Linux and Windows while today are some of the early Nouveau results compared to the proprietary NVIDIA GPU drivers on Windows and Linux.
nv Vs. nvidia in xorg.conf Resolution Problems
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 18, 2006
I'm using Ubuntu on an HP Pavillion zd7000. The laptop is great and I love the setup and such, but I need hardware acceleration. When I run 'nvidia-glx-config enable' according to the how-to on Ubuntu.org, only one single thing changes in the xorg.conf file: the 'nv' driver line is replaced with the 'nvidia' driver line. When I start up X, the nVidia splash shows as if everything were normal, but then, when the actual X Session starts, the resolution drops down to a measly 1280x800, instead of the 1440x900 it should be. I'm utterly stumped. Even the 'Display' module in KDE reports the higer resolution with the NV module and the lower resolution with the nVidia module. Here's some sysinfo:

i want to write OpenGL code that displays 3D spheres on screen and do transformations handle input from keyboard and mouse
i want to use the latest OpenGL version 4.4 for this research
but i have found intel HD driver which use the built in small GPU to accelerate OpenGL
i used it and upgraded the system and done many updates it didn't cause problems it works will
but the problem is

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?
