Ubuntu vs Debian
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 11, 2010
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!
I had used in the past Debian 4.0. Now I decided to install Kubuntu. I know that Ubuntu is build upon Debian. So I've got a few questions. Is it possible to install .deb pacckages from Debian disks or repository on Ubuntu? What about drivers are they developed like in Debian? What system utilities I have to read about first (like dpkg)? Is it present LAMP (Apache, MySQL, PHP) in Kubuntu?
ubuntu 12.10 considered very slow vs linux mint?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 5, 2013
I have a 1 month old, brand new laptop (thinkpad). It's basically the "reference" laptop to have for linux, and I installed ubuntu 12.10, super modern hardware.
I found it to be very slow out of the box. Is it the unity interface? Any way we can disable this completely?
Running calibre, eclipse, and chrome, and thunderbird would result in big time harddrive "thrashing" where there's constant activity.
I was thinking about buying an SSD simply b/c things were so slow.
On a whim I installed linux mint 14 (cinnamon desktop). I am not exaggerating when I say that it is literally 5 times as fast in every area.
I can run the aforementioned apps simultaneously without any problems. It's been a revelation.
My SSD purchase is on the back burner now.
I'm sure that the Unity interface has been a complaint and there's always going to be people who dislike change. Or maybe it's most people who dislike change.
But I found it quite hard as a newbie to know what is
Does Ubuntu 13.04 + Cinnamon = Linux Mint?

I know Mint is built upon Ubuntu. So, if you take Ubuntu 13.04 and add Cinnamon, is that the same as Linux Mint or is there more to Mint then just Cinnamon?

I've been hearing a lot of good things about Linux Mint lately, and was wondering what you guys think about it. Do you think it's good enough to warrant uninstalling Ubuntu in favour of it, or Ubuntu will be just fine for the time being? If you wouldn't mine, could you give me a short comparative analysis? Like the differences between installations, and does Mint use the same package manager, terminal, compiz, things like that, as Ubuntu?
Also, this is slightly off topic, but if I were to format my Ubuntu partition, would Grub go with it?

Ubuntu V.S. Kubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 24, 2007
Could some one please explain to me what the differences are between Ubuntu and Kubuntu? I don't really understand the Gnome V.S. KDE thing.
So from a users point of view what are the pluses and minus between the two, or does one just have a brown screen while the other is blue? one has the tool bar at the top of the screen the other has it at the bottom.
Currently I am running Feisty with and XP duel boot. ( haven't booted windows in months )
And on a second computer I am running Gutsy. Been thinking about giving Kubuntu a try just to see what it is like and what all it has.
If some one could tell me what to look out for so I will notice the diferances I would really appreciate it.
Ubuntu vs. Kubuntu vs. Xubuntu vs. Edubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 6, 2011
I have a big question:
I've been hearing a lot about other types of Ubuntu.
E.g. Ubuntu (itself), Xubuntu, etc.
But What is the point? Why not just use the original. I've tried Kubuntu and find that the only reasonable replacement. And that is just to have Ubuntu slow but look pretty. Is there any other use of Kubuntu? And what are the perks to Xubuntu and Edbuntu ? I mean what's the point of Xubuntu ? And how is Edbuntu suited to educational purposes?
Hello again, World!
I'd appreciate any kind of feedback.
Ubuntu vs Kubuntu ??
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 4, 2010
I have both the Ubuntu and Kubuntu 10.04 discs and was browsing them extensively today. I was a bit disappointed with Ubuntu, it seemed very sparce program-wise(must admit I'm spoilt as I have been using the 9.10 Ultimate Edition which packed with lovely goodies).
Kubuntu, which I see for the first time ever today, seems visually very different... surely there's more to it though.
What is the difference between the two? Is Kubuntu made for a specific purpose?
