The Sims 1 with Mandrake Gaming Edition.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 3, 2010
I'm just wondering if there is some version of Cedega or Wine that is still compatible with the first Sims game?? I think it's awesome that they ported it, but I'm not in the mood to play the Sims 3, since I'm on a DELL Mini 10v. Most basic games work very well on this thing, so I figure the first Sims should be relatively simple.
If nothing else, does someone know where I could buy this ridiculously old OS?
Ubuntu Server Edition vs. CentOS?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 11, 2009
I've had dedicated servers hosting my websites for years now, though I admit I have no server administration or management experience. My dedicated servers are currently run off of CentOS 64-bit, though I am interested in using Ubuntu Server Edition 64-bit.
I'd like to compare and contrast the two, in terms of performance, ease of use, stability, and security. I know they are both Linux distributions but the two are based off of two different ones: Red Hat & Debian.
One day I would love to learn how to fully administer and manage my server myself. That's one of the reasons I'm leaning towards Ubuntu, because of its documentation and large community support forum. I just don't want to lose performance, security, or stability by switching from CentOS to Ubuntu Server Edition.
Can anyone really compare and contrast the two in a server environment? I've used Ubuntu as a desktop OS before, though I really didn't like it as much as openSUSE. Not only that but Ubuntu di

What are the differences?
What are the pros/cons in terms of performance, usability, etc..
If you use it, why do you prefer it?
Bug in Citadelserver on Ubuntu Server Edition 12.04 LTS
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 13, 2013
We are migrating to Ubuntu Server Edition from CentOS. We use the Citadel mail/groupware server a lot but there's a bug in Citadel resulting in the delete button in web mail not to work. The bug is described here:
Is there a way to fix this without upgrading either Ubuntu Server or Citadel Server, and what would it take to run a newer version of Citadel Server on 12.04 to fix this problem?
Linux Mint Debian Edition
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 1, 2011
I've just installed and been playing around with linux mint debian edition, and wow am I impressed. It certainly lacks a lot of the polish of ubuntu or vanilla mint but it makes up for it in its performance. I don't know why it performs so much better than pretty much every other distro I've tried, especially ubuntu.
For example in ubuntu 10.10 and 11.04 the scrolling in firefox with smooth scrolling enabled is horrific and laggy (using catalyst 11.3/11.4 and oss driver.) in LMDE its just as smooth as in windows using both the oss driver and catalyst.
Compiz is generally FAR smoother too. Minimize animtions, general usage, doesn't have some odd artifacts like in ubuntu (in natty all the fade animations have this annoying white flicker)
Boot time is faster, applications launch faster.
Does anyone know what could make stuff like scrolling and compiz so much faster on my machine in this distro? I am quite curious as I have had these issues in other distro's too. Laptop's specs are in
Gnome on Ubuntu Server Edition
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 8, 2008
I have just installed Ubuntu server edition and am trying to figure out how to load Gnome desktop. I have done research and from what I have seen, it comes with desktop edition but not server. That is if I am reading right. I tried following a few pages on installing it, but I do not think im reading right.
Basically I want to load into Gnome desktop but can not figure out how. It seems everything installed right as I can login at the command prompt looking screen, but not sure how to load Gnome. How do I go about doing this?
ubuntu server edition
location: linux.com - date: August 30, 2010
so i installed server addition to my extra hard drive. i used my sisters computer running ubuntu 10.04 to try to use it to store files.
it did not come up on the network.
when i boot into server mode it gives me a unix interface, and as such i can do anything in there. but im wondering is there more to it than that and how do i use it/get it to hook up to the network. im sure theres no Graphical Interface, as it doesnt need one, but i dont seem to have it working properly. do i have to install cloud as well?
also will windows users be able to access the server?
Thanks, general info on how to use it is what im looking for!
Mint 14 KDE Edition
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 8, 2012
Some of you might know that I have been looking at nearly all of the full featured desktop environments lately, trying to find the one that did everything I wanted the way I wanted it too. I looked at Cinnamon, Gnome Shell, Mate, Unity and a couple others that are distro specific.
Recently I installed the Linux Mint 14 KDE x64 release candidate to take a look at it. Before anyone says it, I know it is Kubuntu re-branded with codecs installed by default and that is fine with me, they are both very good and I have always had nothing but admiration for the Kubuntu community. I wanted specific features out of the box, like all of the Dolphin right click features though.
At any rate, KDE has really gotten very good since the last time I had used it. I love how the hot corner is only active when multiple applications are running, it's nice and it's not annoying. I liked how everything to set up the system was in one place too, no hunting for anything!

Ubuntu or Kubuntu with Ultramatix, or Ultimate Edition?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 20, 2011
I am trying to fix a friend's computer. The hard drive crashed, along with her backup installer of Windows. I recommended trying Linux and she is willing (albeit slightly cautiously) to give it a go.
Her needs are fairly typical: web browsing (including banking and shopping), light document creation and editing, picture offloading and light editing, and music library ripping/converting/management.
I am no expert with this Linux stuff, however I know enough to know that Ubuntu is the most supported and popular version around thus far (which usually means the most chance of getting help if needed) so I am drawn to going with it. The part that I am a little confused about is which version to go with? I want to make the switch to Linux as transparent as possible for her, so I would like a Windows-like experience in as many fundamental ways as possible. BTW- I am aware that there are more "Windows-clone-style" distro's but I don't want to give her a distro with little
Knoppix: Ubuntu Edition
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 11, 2013
For all of you sysadmins out there, you've probably used Knoppix once or twice to rescue a system or wipe a hard disk. If you havent heard of it, Knoppix is a live-CD/DVD rescue disk based on Debian. Seeing that Ubuntu is based on Debian, making a Ubuntu-based Knoppix would be relatively easy, and it would have all the Ubuntu features, but still the same programs. If you are interested in helping build this distro, my Launchpad username is ahalverson.
