Canonical makes subscribing to Ubuntu Advantage professional Linux support easier

Filed under
Ubuntu

Many people think the big selling point of Linux is that it doesn't cost money. Yeah, operating systems based on the open source kernel are largely free up front, but that isn't the whole story. True, home users can probably get by without paid support, but businesses can't always rely on Google searches and forum posts for help.

Enter Ubuntu Advantage. If you are a small, medium, or large business that is transitioning to the Ubuntu operating system, going it alone is not always wise. UA is a paid subscription offering from Canonical, which provides professional-level support. Today, the company makes it even easier for users to subscribe.

Leftovers: Ubuntu, Mint

  • Ubuntu Designers Show Off New Look ‘Scopes Toolkit Cards’
  • Ubuntu Shifting The Overton Window

    We’ve talked for years about the killer app that will take the Linux desktop to the mainstream. For some the killer app is a particular game. To illustrate, I’m still playing Civilization IV. I’ve spent about thirty minutes trying to get it working under Wine to no avail. I’m sure I just haven’t found the right tutorial yet. Until that happens, I can’t fully commit.

    The next category of killer app usually comes from the productivity side of things. For some, it’s a video editor with the capacity and polish of Final Cut Pro X. For others, it’s a Microsoft product such as Visio or Project. For many, it’s Adobe’s Photoshop or, more accurately, their Creative Cloud suite of applications.

    [...]

    Ubuntu may have a great project on its hands from a technical level, but if it fails to continue the momentum of positive press, it’ll fail to get the widespread adoption it needs to make it successful. I’d expect for the next Snappy Sprint for Ubuntu to not only invite a wide spectrum of Open Source enthusiasts, but also the Linux press. Which outlets should be invited, should absolutely be a high priority topic for those planning the next event. Assuming the next sprint is already being planned, who would you like to see cover the event?

The Speed Of Ubuntu 16.10 Currently Versus Ubuntu 16.04, Clear Linux

Filed under
Graphics/Benchmarks
Ubuntu

Being mid-way through Ubuntu 16.10's development cycle, here are some fresh benchmarks showing how its performance has changed (if at all) compared to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS as well as compared to Intel's high-performance Clear Linux distribution as a reference point.

Over Ubuntu 16.04, the current Ubuntu 16.10 images have GCC 6.1.1 as a big difference for the tests being built from source. Right now Ubuntu 16.10 is still relying upon a Linux 4.4 based kernel while Linux 4.8 will end up being used by the Yakkety Yak in October. Ubuntu 16.10 also has Mesa 12.0.1, but no graphics tests were done for this article since the card running in this system was the GTX 770 with less than ideal Nouveau driver performance.
