Ubuntu vs. Fedora MY SAY! LiveCD
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 29, 2007
I'm going to do what has needed to be done for a long time. Pit the LiveCD installations together.
1. Ease of Install
3. Hardware Detection/Installation
All of these will be scored on a scale of 1/10.
HP Vectra VL420
512MB of RAM
40 GB Harddrive with XP on first drive.
nVidia GeForce FX 5500
HP Deskjet D1420
Lets start with
1. Ease of Install
I found Fedora incredibly easy to install. It was very fast and didn't take up much resources. I though didn't like the configuration on bootup, personal thing.
But It didn't find XP on the first drive and add it to the boot menu, and I had to migrate files via CD or manual install of NTFS-3G. Not to mention add Windows to the boot menu manually.
Ubuntu is incredibly easy to install. Simple box with simple questions. But what I like most about it, is the ability to migrate files from your Windows installa

Haiku OS: What's the big deal anyway?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 15, 2009
I'll will admit that I don't closely follow Haiku's development. But from reading comments about it over at the osnews.com, it seems such a big deal to a lot of people. I tried to find out more about Haiku, which took 8 years just to reached apha 1, but simplt don't find anything special about it. Maybe I'm missing something. Does it bring anything new to the table that Windows, OSX, and Linux didn't already have? Anybody knows?

What i do not know is what exactly is Haiku?
I thought it was another Linux Distro, but then i read it's not linux at all. Could anyone explain it to me, and tell me is it any good for an ordinary computer user?
What linux or BSD or Haiku distribution for eeePC 701

The internet connection is Huawei 220 and Elisa's 3G wireless.
What Distro is Google using?

Employees have a choice of a MAC (mostly for image designing, movies, and sound) or Linux. Development would highly be a Linux machine for the server applications and the 100% customization of the OS to fit their needs especially for security.
First thought for Linux, DBM or RPM?
Next, KDE or GNOME?
And finally, Intel or AMD? It's not software, but people do have a preference.

What does i386 mean?
