Linux Music or The Ubuntu Shuffle

Filed under

It the spirit of change I decide to give Linux a chance at being my main OS. I have liked the idea of it for a long time. I am not a Microsoft fan. Linux has always struck me as cool and not the kind of hollow coolness those admen think up for Apple commercials.

I did some research and decided on my distribution. Because of my interest in music, video and graphics Ubuntu Studio was a natural fit. Ubuntu seems to be the most user friendly and accessibly distribution out now. Ubuntu Studio is essentially Ubuntu with music, video, and graphics application bundled with and appropriate splash screens, wall papers and other images that fit with the studio idea. All of this can be add to another Ubuntu distribution though Studio just makes it easier all bundled together. The biggest difference between Studio and the other is the kernel. It comes with a special real-time kernel that helps to lower evil latency. But there are more kernels available and you can choose your own when you boot up.

Suse: Question. What do you call second-place in ARM enterprise server linux? Answer: Red Hat

ARM TechCon Suse is claiming victory over Red Hat by announcing – and these caveats are all crucial – "the first commercial enterprise Linux distribution optimized for ARM AArch64 architecture servers." In plainer English, Suse has developed an enterprise-grade Linux distribution that runs on 64-bit ARM servers (should you happen to ever find one). Suse claims this software is a world first because it is a finished commercial product, thus beating Red Hat to the punch: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server for ARM is still only available as a beta-like development preview.
