Installing Ubuntu: On Which Computer & Which Download (Computer Type)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 9, 2008
I decided that I'm going to get Ubuntu, but I have some questions.
If you look on this page, there's several options. Ok, now for the questions.
1. What does it mean by support? The server edition is supported till 2013, so does that mean that after 2013 that version will no longer work? Or does it mean that I will have to just redownload the newer version if I want to receieve continued updates on it?
2. What's the difference between the desktop and server editions? Can I still run applications/use the desktop/access folders and files if I download the server edition?
3. I am going to use Linux mostly because I'm sick of Windows. I'm planning to surf the internet, develop software/games, and things like that on Linux. So should I get the desktop edition or the server edition?
4. My DSL internet isn't very fast and it disconnects when the phone rings (no idea why that happens). If I download it using GetRight (a download manager) all the way, and the DSL disconnects but

Gametunnels top 10 indie games 2005
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 2, 2006
Not only do a lot of them look really interesting, a few of them runs on Linux too. I haven't tried any of them apart from Fizzwizzle and a Darwinnia demo a long time ago, but I will be downloading demos, and at those prices I will be buying too if they are good.
(Still it's sad to see so many that demands Direct X seemingly without any reason for it, I mean the indie scene of all should really support the "indie platforms" )
Does small download size make Ubuntu inferior
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 1, 2006
I'm curious to know why Ubuntu has such a small download at about 700mb compared to 3+ GB of other Linux distributions. Ubuntu seems to get a great name, but the download seems so small that I'm wondering if it is a bit light on software compared to other distributions? Is Open Office/ games etc preinstalled?
Are the kernel sources preinstalled by the way?
