Linux Ubuntu

Filed under
Ubuntu

I am seriously thinking of making the switch from Windows to one of the Linux Operating Systems. The two most popular Linux systems are Fedora, and Ubuntu. I chose Ubuntu because one review I read said it is slightly more user friendly. Plus Ubuntu has a netbook version. And you can load Ubuntu onto a USB drive, and test it out by booting your computer from the USB. I tried that for a few days, then I went ahead and installed it beside my Windows XP.

Now it's been about a week and I'm thinking of removing Windows. Ubuntu is so much better in a lot of ways. For the most part, generic versions of all the most common drivers are built into the OS, so you don't need a hard-to-find manufacturers driver for each and every device in your system.

Phoronix offers some criticism of KDE software, and this is how KDE deals with it

About a month ago, Eric Griffith posted an article on Phoronix where he compared Fedora’s KDE spin to the main Fedora Workstation which uses GNOME. In that article, Eric described a number of issues that he became fully aware of when comparing his favorite desktop environment, Plasma (and the KDE applications he regularly uses) with GNOME’s counterparts. I read that article, shared it with other KDE designers and developers, and we came to the conclusion that yes, at least some of the issues he describes there are perfectly valid and clearly documented. And since KDE does listen to user feedback if it makes sense, we decided we should do something about it. Read more
