Xen, Ubuntu, and Windows 2003 Server
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 9, 2007
Has anyone installed Windows Server 2003 using Xen and Ubuntu?
Does installing Windows on Xen require a processor with VT support? I have a machine that is 2 years old without VT.
Ubuntu Vs. Windows
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 13, 2012
Apologies if this has already been posted ad nauseum (and I am sure that it has been.)
I have five computers in my household, one laptop, three ASUS netbooks, and one bleeding-edge CAD system to rule them all.
Five or six months ago, I switched my laptop over to Ubuntu- in a word, a convert was made. Now, three of the five systems in my hone are Ubuntu only.
They run great, when Ubuntu is the only OS- but there's a catch (there's always a catch, isn't there?) The CAD system has to run Win7 to support Solidworks (I got CATIA to run on Ubuntu, but Solidworks is the white whale here, as it is what my employer uses.)
So, the CAD system runs Windows 99.5% of the time. Here's the rub- because I didn't boot that system into Ubuntu for a couple of weeks, the install is now apparently broken- the loading screen hangs for ever, and it just won't boot. I have not had that problem with the native, dedicated installs.
I've not only installed Ubuntu on systems I own- with
Ubuntu V Windows
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 20, 2013
I have been using Ubuntu for about 2 years now and it has become my preferred operating system running on one server (music and films 6Tb) and two laptops.
I still use Windows on my media centre computer that drives my home theatre as I like WMC and My Movies also I rip DVD using Any DVD which will only run on Windows.
What I cannot understand is with Windows operating systems you have to de-frag the hard drive to keep it running smoothly but Linux all you need to do is delete the old Kernels after upgrades; so Linux is much easer to maintain can anyone explain to my why you donít need to de-frag Linux?
ubuntu vs. windows
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 3, 2012
Most of the threads that are started on most subjects seem to deal mostly on the
technical aspect of computers; ie: how to solve this problem or rectify something else. All of which is very helpful and appreciated, however i wanted to address
something of a more philosophical nature, namely ubuntu versus windows.
As an operating system i like my ubuntu however i am disappointed in that i was
expecting and hoping that ubuntu could replace windows entirely. Unfortunately this
has not proven to be the case, mainly because of the lack of good third party software
that is compatible with a linux system. My experience using wine or crossover to run
windows applications has been frustrating and time wasting. I simply see no alternative but to use a dual boot system, using windows to run windows specific apps. and ubuntu
for everything else. I appreciate your thoughts on this subject.
Slower wireless link rate / speed in Ubuntu vs Windows XP
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 26, 2013
On the same system with the same wireless adapter (Intel 5100) in Windows I see up to 300Mbps link rate reported, while in Ubuntu I see a maximum of 150Mbps. Same system, same wireless adapter, same network access point, same location. The only difference is Windows vs Ubuntu.
I'm using the iwlwifi drivers.
The access point is on the 2.4Mhz band with 2T2R, and 40Mhz channel width.
Why is there a difference between Windows and Ubuntu in the link rate, and what can I do to get full use of the wireless adapter in Ubuntu?
Separately, I upgraded a different system (System2) to Ubuntu 13.04, and while that system was getting the 150Mbps max link rate in Ubuntu previously, with 13.04 it only gets about half of that! So, now my System2 only reports a link rate around 65-72Mbps after the upgrade. Why?
Battery Life Ubuntu Vs. Windows
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 3, 2009
I've always just accepted that my battery life is pretty crap on my laptop, but I booted windows the other (hasnt been done in about 3 months) and when I usually have about 35 minutes at 40% charge, I had an hour under windows. Does anybody know why this could be?
ubuntu versus windows 7 idle temperature and fanspeed
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 15, 2013
i challenge you guys to do some testing. if you have a dual boot machine (ubuntu/w7) i would like to test what is the temperature and the speedfan.
on my machine:
wind 7: around 42C and 2500 rpm (sometimes 0)
ubuntu: around 42C and 3000 rpm (never 0)
Later Edit: it seems that the fanspeed goes down to 2500 rpm after all (on ubuntu) but still never stops!
what do you think?
Ubuntu vs. Windows vs. Mac
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 29, 2007
I have seen at lease a few hundred articles on the web; those pro-Windows, anti-Windows, pro-open-source, anti-open source, pro-mac, anti-mac, you get the idea...
I guess the question I have in the back of my head, is why do people not take the leap into an operating system like Ubuntu? There are far too many reasons to list as to why people should make the switch. With a little imagination and a little tweaking, you can do anything + MORE than Windows or Mac can do, PLUS run most of your Windows Games using Wine...
Just wanted to throw that out there and see the responses to this 'social' query...
Ubuntu vs Windows
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 13, 2011
First, my apologies for duplicating any previously submitted questions regarding Ubuntu and Windows related "stuff". I just don't have the time nor the patience to browse all that is posted and then not be able to find what I am really looking for. I would like to totally move to Ubuntu and dump Windows. However, v11.04 may not work for me so will most likely have to use the v10.x. It's my understanding that "Unity" on v11.04 is not as compatible with older drivers, hardware, and such; the compatibility list(s) is not all that extensive. Of all the stuff I have on Windows XP/SP3 Home there are only a few applications I would like to run on Ubuntu. So my first question is ... can I run a Windows application on Ubuntu without having Windows installed? My next question is ... if I need to have Windows installed, how do I install and run Ubuntu on a separate internal hard drive? I don't mind partitioning but the problem with this is if the hard drive fails everything f
Ubuntu versus Windows 7 for Home Web DMZ Security
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 6, 2011
I am setting up a web site to host from home and am planning on having a web layer that is port forwarded to port 80 and an application layer that is connected to the web layer through a LinkSys WRT310N router. The application server has php code that is called by the web server html files and, in turn, calls executables written in C++. I particularly want to protect the executables from hackers who might reverse engineer the code.
The web layer runs Windows XP and has WAMP installed. The application server has dual boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu. I was wondering which would be more secure for the application layer: Ubuntu or Windows 7. This may seem like a stupid question by I am a newbie to networking and to Ubuntu although I have used a fair bit of Linux and Unix in the past.
Many thanks in advance for any help,
