Ubuntu 12.04 LTS versus LMDE (Linux Mint Debian) 201204?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 25, 2012
http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=1979 I'm really having to ponder this one? Mate 1.2, when idle, really does use half as much RAM as Unity. That was a surprise, especially since I'm comparing 64-bit vs. 64-bit. I have yet to notice any of the rough edges and quirks that are typical of a Mint release.
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 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 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,
backtrack versus ubuntu which is more secure?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 18, 2011
I tested the backtrack firewall with shields up website. It's firewall is better then ubuntu. You have to run backtrack as a root user unlike ubuntu.
Backtrack is used for hacking though does this mean it's better for keeping your computer safe from hackers. thanks for helping out a newb.
P.S. I am talking about the os only. I know the tools on backtrack will keep your os secure also.
AMD64 versus i386

I have to d/l a package for Gourmet Recipe Manager
python-gtk2 (>= 2.3.92)
and at the bottom of the page I see:
Architecture Package Size Installed Size Files
amd64 1,702.3 kB 6672 kB [list of files]
i386 1,363.2 kB 5096 kB [list of files]
I have an AMD processor, but I'm using 32-bit Natty Narwahl 11.04. I apologize, but I've forgotten which I need for my system.
Grub error unbootable 8.04 CD versus Knoppix CD
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 25, 2008
I ran into a problem after installing the 8.04 beta release (x86 64-bit) on a Dell laptop. After restarting, I get Grub Error 17. I believe a filesystem is not mounting. In attempts to correct it, I went to boot from the Knoppix live CD. This was fine. Then I tried the lastest 8.04 release candidate yesterday, and I get grub error 17 booting from the CD as from my HDD after install of 8.04 beta. What has changed on my system that I need to restore?
What are the advantages/disadvantages of using systemd versus sysvinit?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 16, 2012
Was looking into this, and I'm still confused as to why a stable init toolkit is being replaced with one that isn't as well known and trusted, so readily by Linux distributors.
If sysvinit isn't broken and is only marginally slower, why replace it much less any other working init system that isn't broken? It's like trying to fix something that doesn't need fixing.
What are the REAL advantages of systemd, and not just stuff from gossip and hearsay, mis-advertisements, and over-speculation, and what are the REAL advantages of continuing in using sysvinit or even BSDinit and Upstart?
