Android vs. Ubuntu Mobile
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 6, 2011
As a die-hard fan of Ubuntu, I have waited patiently for a handphone that could run LibreOffice. I was keeping tab on Android phones but surfing the internet, I read recent development of Ubuntu Mobile. Will a respectable Ubuntu Mobile phone be a reality soon? This I will definitely wait for but what phone manufacturer would use it?
what security risks are real in Ubuntu (and Android)?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 30, 2011
I've just gone back to Ubuntu 10.04 for the moment, and don't have mobile Broadband credit to add the updates. Because of this and because I've just bought an Android tablet (£75 on eBay) I'm wondering what are the _real_ risks with Linux, as opposed to what are theoretical risks which we generally install updates to protect us against.
I've seen someone say once, possibly in this category of this forum, that with Linux even with ufw not enabled we are pretty safe. I've enabled ufw, I always do, and I don't see anything weird happening, and have also been in this lack of many updates situation several times while distro-hopping.
Is it that various breaches _would_ eventually or soon happen, or that they may, or that the real risks are practically negligible? If I installed 9.04 (still my favorite edition) or 8.04 now, how would the real security issues change?
I don't use any risky sites, mostly just Gmail, Wikipedia, Vimeo and a couple of forums like this these days. My brother's V
Installing Ubuntu for Android

Pretty self-explanatory - how do I actually install "Ubuntu for Android" on my Sony Xperia S, and where can I download it from (the Ubuntu for Android page doesn't seem to have any download links...)?
Syncing Ubuntu and Android 4.1
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 14, 2013
I have recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy Victory with Virgin Mobile. It's a pretty neat phone and my first time using an Android device. One particular thing I was looking forward to with this phone was syncing my music with greater ease than my old iPod Touch. Turns out I was wrong and it's actually become somewhat more difficult.
In trying to synchronize my music I set the phone to connect to the computer using the PTP connection so it would be recognized as a camera. If Banshee manages to recognize that there is in fact a device connected it will not show me any of the music that I previously synchronized with Banshee.
Edit: I'd also like to note that when I connect the phone to my computer Ubuntu recognizes two separate devices. One I assume is the phone's internal memory and the other being the Micro SD card. When I search the Micro SD card there is a directory labeled 'Music', which is empty. When I search the mounted Android file system there is also a directory la
Ubuntu VS Arch

I just wanted to know everyone's opinion on Ubuntu and Arch, and before anyone ask Arch is not Newbie dedicated distro
Ok i will begin describing what ive experienced (me and another one, he knows himself )
I'm using ubuntu since Warty release and i like it a lot, it is user friendly, easy to install, easy to update/upgrade, nothing more to say, talking about ubuntu VS some others, they aren't even compared (hey! am talking about RPM based distro a.k.a FC/Mandriva)
But allow me now to compare 1 year Ubuntu VS 1 week Arch
Ubuntu is user friendly or may i say Newbie dedicated distribution, it's a very cool envirement to learn linux, to work, to play games. Arch is a bit more experienced user distro, for example, When u boot boot with installation cd into you will get into a console where u will launch installer manually, partiton manually with cfdisk, select packages, configure grub/rc.conf etc.. so the installer is not fancy, as well as installing xorg, u have to configur
Any difference between Ubuntu Minimal install vs. Arch Linux install?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 2, 2010
Hello. I'm fairly new to the Linux world. I'm looking into building a lightweight system with either dwm or Openbox as my WM. I've tried using Arch to build a system, but I'm wondering if there are any differences using Ubuntu's minimal install cd and building an Openbox system.
Archlinux vs Ubuntu Minimal 64 bit
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 21, 2012
Just wondering, since I'll be using a Minimal Openbox Config, what could be the difference between those two with the default kernel since I'll be using 64 bit? I know that Arch packages are optimised for i686 but I'm I'll go with 64 bit packages.
I am leaning a bit more on the minimal Ubuntu side, cause of variety of packages, But I am a bit hesitant about the way I have to do system upgrades on ubuntu.. I also develop android apps and I would prefer to go the Ubuntu way since it is preferred by Google.
Ubuntu versus Arch
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 16, 2012
Not really Arch, but Chakra.
I've read and seen some sterling reviews about Chakra (but have only really seen screen shots) and just wanted to know what the general feeling here is. And how does it compare to Ubuntu (11.10) in a few departments.
1. General speed (from booting to desktop applications to shutting down).
2. Stability (does it crash, do apps freeze, etc)
3. Polish (it uses KDE, but is the design polished across its apps and windows etc?)
4. Integration (is it as integrated as Ubuntu, which is about the most integrated I've seen).
I'm interested in what some of you think.
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?
Arch vs Ubuntu Server for Home Server
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 13, 2012
What do you guys recommend?
I've had both installed on my Home Server, and I've had problems on both.
Arch is currently going through some weird conflicts whenever I try to install software or upgrade Pacman. Arch is a fast boot and instant response to SSH requests.
Ubuntu Server (10.04) works, but is much much slower booting, and responding to initial SSH requests and log-ins.
I primarily use the machine headless, but I did have a DE availble in my Arch install.
Would you guys recommend Ubuntu 12.04 for the server, or just reinstalling Arch?
