[News] X Server Analysis in Ubuntu, RightScale Comes to Ubuntu Server

Hash: SHA1

Why Is Moblin's X.Org Stack Faster Than In Ubuntu?

,----[ Quote ]
| Canonical's Scott James Remnant recently set out to explore why X.Org started 
| up so much faster on Moblin than on Ubuntu (particularly, the latest 9.04 
| development code). On an Atom-based netbook (the Dell Mini 9) he found it 
| took Ubuntu's X Server about four seconds to start before the session manager 
| was called. With Moblin on the same hardware it took just about a second and 
| a half.

Ubuntu Server receives positive reviews

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu isn’t just for desktops. Behind the scenes, corporate IT managers have
| put Ubuntu to work on servers. Don’t believe me? Well, I can name names. I
| can also tell you up front that Ubuntu Server gets high marks for its
| corporate support; easy backups, installs and upgrades; documentation, and
| more.
| So I set out to find some IT pros who could talk about Ubuntu Server, which
| wasn’t hard. I just asked, “Who’s using Ubuntu?”  in a
| SearchEnterpriseLinux.com newsletter. Here are some respondents’ views of
| Ubuntu Server, both positive and not-so-positive.



Review of Ubuntu 7.04 Server on Old Hardware

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu 7.04 Server Edition provides a very easy way to get a LAMP server up
| and running quickly. The lack of SSH access as standard seemed strange for a
| distro focussed on ease of installation, but comes from the principle that
| the less daemons there are running, the less daemons there are to hack, which
| is understandable. Of course, it is then up to the user to configure Apache,
| MySQL and PHP, which can be quite time consuming. I think that Ubuntu Server
| is best viewed as a shortcut to a fully rigged server rather than an all in
| one solution.
