    Re: Speed of Ubuntu vs. Windows XP

    You can't challenge someone's claims without providing proof of why they're wrong. At least, that's kind of what you're saying to me about my post.

    Re: Speed of Ubuntu vs. Windows XP

    Again, I didn't say that my bias was better than theirs.



    http://www.osnews.com/comments/19769 Read through the comments, there's some interesting conversation over the benchmarks.

    Re: Speed of Ubuntu vs. Windows XP

    Right, just because one person posted benchmarks validates all the other blind claims as to what's better.



    Where did I say I wasn't biased?



    Well, maybe you should do that too, because...

    Re: Speed of Ubuntu vs. Windows XP

    Yeah, that sounds sort of stupid. But then again, blindly claiming that a 8 year old OS is and always will be slower than the latest Ubuntu is pretty stupid, too. Install Fedora Core 2 and compare...

    Re: Best distro for you?

    Fedora.

    Why: Bleeding edge, blue and generally works quite well for me. Plus, I started on Red Hat.

    Re: Lame presets/settings

    Well, other than that I'm out of ideas. You might want to ask at the HA forums anyway, since the people there would likely know exactly what's up.

    Re: Speed of Ubutu vs. Windows XP

    I doubt that I didn't install it correctly. Also, I don't hate Linux, I've been using it for 12+ years.

    Re: Speed of Ubutu vs. Windows XP

    I gave an opinion. Most people who use Ubuntu with 512MB of ram would tend to agree, just ask. There's a reason why there's lightweight versions of Ubuntu and Linux. I wouldn't go as far to say that...

    Re: Speed of Ubuntu vs. Windows XP

    XP comes with a built in firewall these days. I never install AV or anything like that, so I don't have to worry about it dragging my XP install down.

    Re: Speed of Ubutu vs. Windows XP

    If you re-read my post, you'll see I said "I can tell you that there's no way that modern, full feature Linux distro's", by that I meant a full installation of Ubuntu or Fedora. Not lightweight/do it...

    Re: Speed of Ubuntu vs. Windows XP

    I have 512MB of Ram and I can tell you that there's no way that modern, full feature Linux distro's are as fast as XP. Maybe 6 years ago, but not today. It might be more fair to compare Ubuntu's...

    Virtual Memory has to be from somewhere. You might be able to control the amount of RAM that XP eats with a VM, but the CPU is debatable. Personally, I think most of the logic in this thread is...

    Seriously, why would changing your preferred distro and going to all the trouble of it just to spite the company? Linux will never take off as a Desktop OS if you keep...

    And sometimes swears are the best way of saying things. I've had it out with people on our forum who swear just for the fun of it. Swearing in context is a good thing.
