[News] Review of Top GNU/Linux Distributions

Hash: SHA1

Review: 3 top Linux distros go for different users

,----[ Quote ]
| At first glance, there's little to differentiate 
| between the latest releases of the top Linux 
| distributions: Red Hat's Fedora 12, Novell's 
| openSUSE 11.2 and Canonical's Ubuntu 9.10. They 
| each use the latest releases of open-source 
| applications and are based on recent Linux 
| kernels. Each of the distros also includes open-
| source applications such as OpenOffice and 
| Firefox. However, a closer look reveals real 
| differences -- in fact, each is meant for a 
| different audience.
| Underneath the hood, each of the three uses the 
| 2.6.31 Linux kernel, but above that, their 
| differences begin to surface. Fedora and Ubuntu, 
| for example, use GNOME 2.28 (the latest version) 
| for their default desktop, while openSUSE uses KDE 
| 4.3.1. 
| [...]
| If you're a Linux expert, Fedora is for you. If 
| you just want a good, general-purpose desktop for 
| home or work, then openSUSE is your best pick. And 
| if you're new to Linux, and your computer gets 
| along well with Ubuntu, Ubuntu is still a good 
| choice. 



Windows 7 vs Ubuntu 9.10

| I was musing to my coworkers that if it had
| the following, I could switch from Linux:
| 1) A decent software packaging system.
| 2) Built-in Virtual Desktops.
| 3) Middle-button paste.


Windows 7 vs Ubuntu 9.10

| I love Windows 7 but I canât give up by favorite
| Linux OS either. So, I finally decided to do a
| Performance Benchmark Showdown to decide who
| gets to rule on my PC. Probably, everyone knows
| whatâs new in both of them.
| [...]
| All said and done, if you need performance,
| Ubuntu is for you. If you are looking onGaming,
| you have no other choice than Windows. If you
| are looking at Features again Windows 7 is the
| one for you.

| In Ubuntu's case one of its assets is the
| work done to support netbook PCs. Ubuntu's
| Netbook Remix interface is a very slick
| alternative for the smaller screen space
| common on netbooks.


Windows 7 An Improvement, But Is Mac OS X Still Better?

| I feel that Mac OS X or Ubuntu are both
| better systems.


Feature-By-Feature: Ubuntu 9.10 Vs. Windows 7

| Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop
| Karmic Koala's desktop should be familiar
| to Windows users. Right-click menu
| shortcuts and  personalizing the desktop
| features are similar to Windows 7. The
| desktop still isn't as "glitzy" as Windows
| 7, but users can get the eye candy of
| Windows 7 with a fast graphics card and can
| choose the "Extra" settings in Ubuntu
| 9.10's "Appearance Preferences."


Ubuntu Karmic Koala- A perfect alternative to Windows 7

,----[ Quote ]
| Before you decide to pay for a Windows 7 license, I
| would humbly urge you to first download a copy of
| Karmic Koala, give it a try for a week or two and
| then make an unbiased assessment of it yourself.
| You will see that you would not have to spend money
| whatsoever on a pile of software that crumbles at
| the least attack made on it. Do you intend using
| Windows 7? Please tell us why or why you would not
| use Ubuntu.
