Ubuntu 9.04 vs Windows 7 RC vs OSX86 on my laptop!
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 15, 2009
I thought it might be interesting to try and see how the most prominent OS of the day run on the same hardware. So I setup grub to be able to triple-boot Ubuntu 9.04, Windows 7 RC and Mac OSX86.
The idea was for me to see if my computer is still fit to run with the latest OS software and also to look for a better OS if that's ever possible.
The harware specs are found below.
The boot times (from power on to full desktop) are roughly similar and not one OS is a clear winner. Since OSX86 is customized to make Mac OS work on PCs, the estimate is just, well, estimated.
Ubuntu 9.04 : 35s
Windows 7 RC: 55s
Mac OSX86 : 43s
Comparing software is indeed difficult. Some apps are made to run only on some platforms. Because of my harware, most apps like Firefox and OpenOffice or MSOffice or iWork take about 10-15s to start.
WINDOWS - MS Office 2007 SP2 is a clear winner in Windows 7 RC. Prefetch makes applications launch in 1s the second time with.
Hurray, my new tablet :D

Hiya! First post here, not a newbie to Linux though!
I'm looking for some games to play on my computer with the following specs:
1.6ghz Intel Atom
Nvidia Ion LE
If that doesn't narrow the selection, I don't know what will. xD
I want a game that isn't cartoon-ey (Example: Super Tux Kart)
Preferably something Adventure relating, including RPGs.
And NO EMULATORS. I'd rather play on the actual system. I'm looking for native (or wine) free Linux games!
If the game is awesome, feel free to suggest it even if it doesn't meet my preferences above. Just please no puzzle games, I've got dozens of them. Haha.
Thank you, hope to hear back from you all soon!
An Honest Report on my Linux Adventure
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 4, 2006
Tired of expensive, non-customizable, proprietary software, constant crashes and malware problems, I sought refuge from Microsoft in Linux. It sounded like a dream: free software for everything, totally customizable, virtually no malware, stable, secure, open-source, etc. And I was presently surprised to find most of my early fears were unfounded: MP3 and DVD support were easy to install, KDE 3.5 had a great GUI control center, the directory structure actually makes sense, communicating with printers is easier than in Windows, and more. I tried over two dozen distros, and discovered my personal preferences for Linux:
2. Debian-based (apt-get, etc.)
3. Easy OS install
4. Ease of use (automounting, etc.)
5. Compliance with Linux standards (no Linspire, etc.)
6. Selection of installed packages during OS install (most OSes install a gajillion things I'll never use, without asking)
I also found that many things I'd heard about Linux were untrue. First, free forum support i

[SOLVED] Problems comiling Wesnoth for my Ubuntu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 24, 2010
Hi, I want to run the development version of the game Battle for Wesnoth, but I'm having some problems compiling it...
I downloaded the latest version (1.9.1) and followed the installation instructions;
sudo tar -xvjf wesnoth-1.9.1.tar.bz2
sudo ./configure --datadir=/usr/share/games/wesnoth/
I managed to get to this point, after some small problems, but 'configure' told me I needed SDL.
I installed SDL (libsdl1.2-dev) using the Software Center, but now it sais;
I need someone to hold my hand here.

After more sturm and drang than I want to talk about, I have finally managed to burn a disc with UBUNTU 8.04.1 and get it working on my Dell XPS 410. I just wiped the hard disk to do this, so there is no partitioning involved. The box is pretty rudimentary with one CD drive and a couple of USB ports on the front. It has Open Office and I have been to file some backup stuff from my main box. So it is somewhat useful. There are some games, too, and most of them seem to work. No printer, Internet, scanner or WIFi. of course, though the keyboard and mouse work. I have not a clue where to go from here.
I do have a fifteen disc distribution, Debian GNU/Linux 3.1r4, which I have also tried. The Dell will try to boot from the first disc but suddenly finds itself unable find the very disc it has been working from. That seems odd but typical.
Ok. From here, where?
