Ubuntu One vs. Dropbox
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 14, 2009
I just found a service called Dropbox (http://www.getdropbox.com/) and was curious how this stacks up vs. Ubuntu One. I have not used either one... but from reading the details they seem similar in function, but dropbox is cross-platform.
netbook: ubuntu remix vs. jolicloud
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 1, 2012
i really don't know where to post this but maybe you guys can help...
i have an asus 1015pem and it has win 7 starter. it started getting really slow even if i removed a lot of apps and features and so forth.
i installed jolicloud because the install was so easy and so was the dual boot option (i still have win 7). there are some things i dislike about jolicloud. for me the biggest is battery usage. it seems to use the heck out of my battery. also it does not support hibernation if you dual install over windows.
the pros are that jolicloud is super fast. like way faster than win 7 starter. i don't know if something is wrong with my win 7 starter or what, but jolicloud is very quick in comparison.
so i want these few things:
2. dual boot
3. hibernation mode
4. good battery management
should i stick with jolicloud, do windows xp, keep win 7 starter, or try ubuntu remix for netbook, or something else? thanks for the help.
Ubuntu + KDE vs Kubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 5, 2008
I am new to Linux, although I have extensive (20+ years) experience in UNIX as sysadm and software developer on a number of platforms including Sun, IBM, HP, and others.
I have a third-party producing an Ubuntu 7.10 system for me to develop business applications as a side business.
I am used to Hummingbird Exceed's CDE desktop environment and assume that KDE is similar.
I have also read, ad nauseum, hundreds of posts comparing Gnome to KDE and Ubuntu to Kubuntu, but my basic question has not been answered.
Is there any significant difference between using Ubuntu with KDE vs. Kubuntu in terms of performance or features?
Again, this would compare recent versions of the software on new hardware for the purpose of software development.
Thank you for considering this issue one more time.
Ubuntu Desktop vs. Ubuntu Server
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 8, 2006
Can someone please tell me what the difference is between Ubuntu Desktop iso and Ubuntu Server iso?
I know that Ubuntu server does not install a graphical user interface, but was wondering if "server features" can be added to the Ubuntu Desktop installation? For example, can you install Ubuntu desktop and then add web and dns services to it?
Just a bit confused on that point...I want to use Ubuntu as my "desktop operating system", but would also like to be able to explore its server-related features.

For example today I learner for what is it use.

I've got to grips with Ubuntu quite nicely on my main machines but I find it's (obvious) a little heavy for an old laptop I have and my tablet PC could probably do with a lighter version.
I tried xubuntu in the past and things didn't lag but things did get done a lot slower. For instance:
Ubuntu would freeze for 5 seconds but the task would be comeplete
Xubuntu would perform the task without freezing but would take 20 seconds to do it.
From what I gather both Xubuntu and Lubuntu are for low spec machines? So what's the difference?
And Kubuntu is basically ubuntu with a different face I suppose?
I'm sure this has been asked a million times already but each place I go to gives me a different answer :c
Essentially my aim is to find a more suited OS for my old laptop (unicore processor with like 512 RAM) and my tablet PC (dual core 1.20 GHZ with 4GB of RAM)
Ubuntu Desktop vs. Ubuntu Netbook
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 21, 2011
I am installing Ubuntu right now.
At first, I encountered problems when my Desktop Environment was just Ubuntu, but then, I changed it to Ubuntu Netbook.
Is there any difference? I mean, I am using a Toshiba Laptop, so I don't think I fall for the category of netbook.
My question is so shallow, but I hope you can help.
Ubuntu Server vs others

I know that topic title probably makes some people sick - so sorry for bring it back to life.
Anyway, I love using Ubuntu Desktop as it make it so easy for someone with a M$ background like me to get into the swing of things. However, after speeding a whole week learning as much as I could I had to drop the system because I was spending all my time learning and no time actually getting things done. That was about 2 months ago.
I'm back, but this time I need to learn how to manage a server with a linux distro. No GUI. So this brings up the question as to whether Ubuntu server is as good as the other distros like Fedora. I know Ubuntu rocks on the desktop - but what about servers?
So to answer that I figured that I would ask two questions that should let me know.
Is the number of documentation articles (and quality) as good as another more business styled linux when it comes to webservers?
(I have a lot to learn!)
Is the package count as high as the other distros? I remember readin
Ubuntu Server vs. Oracle Enterprise Linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 15, 2010
Having been a long-time Linux supporter, it was a no-brainer for me to push Linux as the OS when it was time to move my company's website(s) from an external host to an internal server. My company ponied up the bucks for an HP Proliant DL180 G5 server (this was about a year ago) upon which I installed Slackware 12.1 (I kinda default to Slackware, although in the past I've also used RedHat on the server and openSUSE on the desktop).
Well, it's now time to upgrade the OS on the server. Perhaps I'm a little late to the game on this, but I just recently found out about Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.5. Bad Oracle ju-ju aside, it looked to be a very good and stable server distro, especially when you consider the availability of Oracle support for it. So I've since installed OEL to a non-production server and have been testing it out. It looks to be a good match for my needs.
However, since installing OEL on my test server I've installed Ubuntu Desktop 10.10 on my home desktop (a 1.86ghz I
Ubuntu desktop vs server

I currently run an SME server and understand most basic topics for setup and domain records but feel that I would like to install more packages that I would not be able to do on SME due to their templating methods of the server design.
I believe ubuntu server may be a better choice at this time.
Is there any reason to load the server version vs the desktop version ?
I mean can I install all the features of the server version from the desktop software center ?
I know performance will be slightly lower this way but I only have minimum users and probably also use as a minecraft server too.
Will be installing on a supermicro server with (2X) Xeon E5320 64bit quad core processors = 8 cores/4GB/80GB sata
