Ubuntu User on Fedora 12: Using It and Liking It

,----[ Quote ]
| I find Fedora 12 fast and responsive. It 
| loads quickly and after it is set up it 
| seems stable. I can find most of the 
| applications that I use and there are many 
| online resources to assist me with setting 
| up my system. So far, I have installed KDE 4 
| and GNOME and like the look and feel of 
| both. The community has been helpful but 
| quite a bit smaller than what I am used to. 
| I expect to write more about Fedora in the 
| future.


Less blogging about Ubuntu - (Funny) Howto

| The story for the first article is âI bought 
| a SSD and Ubuntu is faster on itâ. Good for 
| you. Now, on Linux you can really alter the 
| system to take advantage of a peculiar 
| device, so I suggested three things to try: 
| disabling the readahead service, any re-
| ordering IO scheduler and try some 
| filesystem that has optimizations for flash 
| memory, in a one-line comment.
| The day after the guy has a whole new post 
| about optimizations for a SSD. Hilarious. 
| Also, since the filesystem suggestion 
| required too much effort, he puts in the 
| evergreen noatime mount option instead. 
| Thatâs less than 24 hours of condensed 
| experience for the world!
| Clearly the tweakings suggested are done in 
| the worst possible way and upgrades will 
| undo them.
| Surely there is a lot of this kind of 
| blogging and the magic word seems to be 
| âUbuntuâ, possibly the latest release.



Fedora 12 Pushes Bleeding Edge of Linux Networking

| Moving forward, Frields sees users moving
| to Fedora, and to open source software in
| general, as an alternative to proprietary
| software that isn't keeping pace.
| "We're being assisted by the fact that
| proprietary software is not getting better
| at the pace that people expect," Frields
| said. "People expect an increasing rate of
| evolution and proprietary software is not
| capable of sustaining that rate. That is
| driving people to look for alternatives."

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
