ThinkFree Office: Running on Ubuntu 8.04!

Software

ThinkFree is a company, which for the longest time, has offered their free online office suite, much like Google docs or Zoho Office. On April 7, things changed…

The folks at ThinkFree are now offering their desktop office suite for free, and happen to have a version for Linux. That version for Linux also happens to run on Ubuntu 8.04, and work well. It uses it’s own Java JRE, much like Lotus Symphony.

Ryzen 7 2700X CPUFreq Scaling Governor Benchmarks On Ubuntu Linux

With this week's Ryzen 5 2600X + Ryzen 7 2700X benchmarks some thought the CPUFreq scaling driver or rather its governors may have been limiting the performance of these Zen+ CPUs, so I ran some additional benchmarks this weekend. Those launch-day Ryzen 5 2600X / Ryzen 7 2700X Ubuntu Linux benchmarks were using the "performance" governor, but some have alleged that the performance governor may now actually hurt AMD systems... Ondemand, of course, is the default CPUFreq governor on Ubuntu and most other Linux distributions. Some also have said the "schedutil" governor that makes use of the kernel's scheduler utilization data may do better on AMD. So I ran some extra benchmarks while changing between CPUFreq's ondemand (default), performance (normally the best for performance, and what was used in our CPU tests), schedutil (the newest option), and powersave (if you really just care about conserving power).
