Ubuntu + KDE vs Kubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 14, 2011
Hi to all,
I don't know if this is the right section to post this question, but it's interesting for me to know if it's the same thing installing KDE on ubuntu or install Kubuntu directly. ( suppose you have the same base, eg. 10.04 )
Some people in forum says that it's not exactly the same thing. So, what are the differences?
Thank you very much!
Ubuntu wine vs Kubuntu wine
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 9, 2013
I though both versions are identical. But obviously there must be something different. I am running an application trough samba client. It is working on Ubuntu but not on Kubuntu.
Does anyone know what is the reason for that regarding on fact that wine versions are identical. I am running the application trough command "env WINEPREFIX="/home/codingeek/.wine" wine Z:\\var\\tmp\\kdecache-codingeek\\krun\\3331.0.PTal.exe".
Best regards, Janez
SLOW Ubuntu Server vs CentOS MySQL Disk Access
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 14, 2009
I don't belive Ubuntu should compile the standard kernel with these options:
They SHOULD BE for any new server or servers no older than say 3 years old:
At the very least, Ubuntu should have a standard kernel package we can apt-get that has the clock set at 1000.
So, we have recently spent a very long time trying to track down problems with our MySQL server.
Our requirements are high concurrency, high load, and ACID transaction compliance.
We use InnoDB in MySQL for our database. To increase the safety of the data integrity, we turn "sync-binlog=1" in the MySQL my.cnf. We notice this basically killed all performance on our server... essentialy 98% performance hit on our ubuntu64 10GB Ram with Raid-1 sas with battery backed up cache.
We tried configuring MySQL 4.1, 5.0, 5.1, 6.0 and the config logs hundreds of times. Nothing we did would improve our performance.

I have a comeputer that is about 10 years old and I would like some advise on what to do. Right now it is running Windows XP but it is not the fastest. What is the difference between lubuntu and xubuntu? Also which would you recommend of the 3? I am looking for preformance + features, but if i had to choose one i would choose preformance. Thank you
Ubuntu Karmic vs Redhat 5.4 as Xen dom0
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 3, 2010
I'm looking to consolidate a couple of windows boxes and some linux machines on to one piece of hardware using Xen.
I investigated using Karmic, but when I started reading the docs I was a little dismayed to learn you need to bring over a Debian kernel with Xen support. Should I be using Hardy for a production Xen server?
RHEL 5.4 has a Xen kernel on the cd. I prefer a more open distro but should I be considering Redhat? I know this is an Ubuntu forum but I expect to get unbiased answers!
Ubuntu speed vs *others* (Arch)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 3, 2010
Would there be any speed improvement with Arch Linux compared to a Ubuntu minimalist xfce installation? (in terms of system responsiveness)
I mean my system is pretty fast and i know Ubuntu is easier, since im new to linux, but i went on with a minimalist xfce4 ubuntu setup and it went pretty smooth, i really like the redmond raleigh UI and require nothing more than xfce has... im happy overall... but i just wonder if there will be any notable performance from going to Arch Linux. Always looking for that little extra speed and responsiveness. And hearing great things about Arch...
I went on with installing Arch in vbox and i cant properly meassure its speed in that i can see that it runs on about a third of the processes in overall and it seems a little bit faster... but is it worth it to change Os if im happy with Ubuntu?
[SOLVED] Debian server vs Ubuntu server vs Slackware for Quad Xeon DL580 G3
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 17, 2011
I'm very new to Linux and I'm looking for some guidance on which version of Linux server I should install. I read several posts that try to compare Slackware, Debian server, and Ubuntu but the message I got is that each version has its pros/cons. The version that you end up using should ultimately be the best for what you are trying to do. I'll try to explain what I'm trying to do to see if it helps in making a recommendation.
I purchased a HP Proliant DL580 G3 with the following configuration:
(4) Intel Xeon 3.0Ghz CPU's W/ 8mb Cache/667mHz FSB
16GB RAM @ 16 x 1GB ELPIDA PC2-3200-333
(2) 36.4GB 15k U320 SCSI Hard Drives
(2) Power Supplies
This server will be configured as my web server and database server. I will use Apache and MySQL.
I want the server to be as secure as possible and will be following the recommendations on the book "Hacking Linux Exposed" to configure Linux.
I would like to install a version of Linux that
Ubuntu 32bit vs 64bit
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 14, 2011
I have used Mint linux in the past but just as an experiment. I really liked the Mint distribution but I wanted to try Ubuntu. I got a book out of the library and used the disk to install Ubuntu 10.10. I did not pay attention to the fact that it was 32bit. I upgraded to the latest edition before I realized it was 32bit. I went to the Ubuntu download site to get the 64bit iso. On the site it has a note recommending the 32bit. I have two questions. First, is there a reason not to use the 64bit distribution? Second, if I decide to move to the 64bit system, what would be the best way to proceed?
LXer: Ubuntu Voltron vs Google Chrome OS

With the announcement of Google's Chrome OS this week many have been wondering what this means for Ubuntu. It goes without saying that Canonical does not have the resources available to it that Google has. Or does it?
Ubuntu Server Vs. Ubuntu Desktop for home file server
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 2, 2010
I'm new to this site and thought i'd start off by saying that I'm new to linux but trying to figure everything out. Next let me explain what I'd like to do. I have both windows (xp and win7) and mac (osx snow leopard) running on my network. I'd like to find a unified system that I could use as a file server. Mainly, I'd like to have it hold music and movies, maybe run some automated backups from a win 7 desktop. I'd also like it to be a print server. I'd like to run the most simple and lightest weight OS for the server os. However, I don't think I have the basic linux knowledge to run Ubuntu Server as it is terminal based. I have installed it on my machine but I feel like im running in circles. I have it installed and can SSH in with my laptop no problem. I feel like I may be better off installing Ubuntu Desktop and removing what I dont need.
Any help / tutorials / anything woudl be greatly appreciated. If someone could give some examples of what they've done or
