Ubuntu Server Or CentOS
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 20, 2011
Hey guys I am soon to deploy a new server for quite a bit of things such as web serving, Game Servers, and File Hosting. I have one main question is whether to go with Ubuntu Server 10.10 or CentOS 5.5 in terms of reliability, uptime, expandability, and the most professional one to use. It would be great to read some of your opinions. Also if you would like you can also post what you think is the best overall server operating system.... Thank you in advance
Ubuntu Vs. CentOS/Fedora differences in command line
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 21, 2010
I am planning to have two linux home severs. One “always on” Ubuntu server with SAMBA, FTP, etc and another one CentOS/Fedora that boots up once a day, backups my Ubuntu server and shuts down. Both will be headless.
I have the Ubuntu Server up and running. Before I setup the CentOS/Fedora backup server, I would like to know:
1) how different CentOS/Fedora is from Ubuntu in terms of managing the server from command line.
2) Are the commands very different. I am willing learn a bit but is the difference so huge that it will take days for me to setup up the backup server?
3) Are the directory structures/files very different? For example, in Ubuntu I know where sources.list (/etc/apt/sources.list) is it the same in CentOS/Fedora or is it the same for most part?
I know Ubuntu uses deb and CentOS/Fedora uses rpm. Other than this what else might be different. I have no experience on a rpm based linux. I am fine managing my ubuntu server from command line. I can easily setup
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.
[SOLVED] Ubuntu VS. Xubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 3, 2008
I understand that xubuntu is bassically a lighter version of ubuntu.
But I was wondering when it comes down to it what will I be missing?
What type of things will be different as far as an average user is concerned. Any different interaction?
So far I love Ubuntu 8.10 and have everything working the way I want it to.
This is really just out of curiosity.
Switching from Ubuntu to Xubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 8, 2013
I got a refurbished computer from FreeGeek Chicago about 15 months ago. It came with an old version of Ubuntu using Gnome. Since then I have upgraded Ubuntu several times til I am now using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. My monitor and graphics
card do NOT seem to support 3D rendering and I have had problems using Unity and Unity 2D. So, I went back to using
Gnome and it automatically falls back to using Gnome Classic without special effects.
I have installed and been trying out the Xfce desktop. It seems to work well with the monitor and graphics card in this
computer cobbled together from spare parts that originally didn't even have a modem. Besides the obvious task of backing up the data files I have created, how do I properly "switch over" to using Xubuntu with some of my favorite Gnome apps installed?
Thanks for your suggestions.

Hi all, I am about to install Hardy and is considering my options whether I should install Xubuntu or stick with Ubuntu. I know Ubuntu uses Gnome as default desktop while Xubuntu uses XFCE. My question is: Is there anything that can be done on Ubuntu (Gnome) that can't be done on Xubuntu (Xfce)? Thanks.

Is there any advantage to have ubuntu studio?
ARM Chromebook 13.04 Ubuntu, Xubuntu, or Lubuntu? why?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 15, 2013
Ok so I am thinking of trying to install ubuntu on my arm chromebook when the final 13.04 versions release later this month. I know that there is *supposed to be increased support for the hardware for the 13.04 release (any thoughts on that?). Now my question is this (I am kind of a newbie so bare with me), is there going to be any major differences in support or the installation process for Ubuntu, Xubuntu, or Lubuntu? If the answer is no, then which version would you all recommend? I currently use Xubuntu on a parallels VM and have been very happy with it, but considering the lower system resources of the samsung arm chromebook I am thinking that Lubuntu may be a better alternative. Then again the 12.10 version of the standard Ubuntu release already ran pretty snappy on this hardware according to multiple sources.
So basically thats the question, which version of 13.04 would you install on a Samsung ARM Chromebook... Ubuntu, Xubuntu, or Lubuntu?
in case youre wondering, my require
minimal ubuntu + xfce vs xubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 6, 2011
I am a minimalist when it comes down to IT and a functionality enthusiast.
Therefore - combined with the fact that i want the most speed out of my new SSD, which also has not much space - i am sure that i want to use xfce as my desktop environment (for my notebook)
Advantages of minimal ubuntu + xfce compared to xubuntu:
-) minimalistic install: from the start on there are only programs running that i want and i can control every library (and etc) that is being installed (therefore: no space is wasted and i have total control over my system)
-) all the advantages of ubuntu: drivers, updates, community, flexibility, support, et cetera
Disadvantages of minimal ubuntu + xfce compared to xubuntu:
-) it seems .... "complicated" is not the term i am looking for.. you could call it "unnecessary work" to decide from scratch about every application....
That's how far i got with my train of thought about this.
I really would like your opinions about this and if you thin
Ubuntu Vs Red Hat
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 19, 2011
Ive tried both Red Hat 5.0 and Ubuntu.
Ive heard Red Hat is more robust and secure, although I dont see how I can go back to red hat once that Im so used to Ubuntu 10.04+ (Currently 11.04)
People still say Red Hat is the leader, all servers in red hat..
Is it true..
If so, why?
