Top Linux vs Windows Disputes Myths

Filed under
OS

In continuation of my previous article “Can Ubuntu Defeat Windows”, which caused some disputes, I decided to share my vision of the most Linux vs Windows disputes myths.

I am not going to start a dispute here on what is better and which OS will beat another. That is all depends on your belief, your PC level use, your work, your payment abilities, what you need from OS and how you use it.

The article is based on such aspects and arguments as:

* User friendly OS;
* Software;
* Installation;
* Hardware;
* Cost;

For a Linux Distributive I have selected Ubuntu (with GNOME DE). I sure that other dists are all cool, but in fact, I know Ubuntu much better then other dists, because I use it at work for already 1,5 years.

Full Story.

Can Ubuntu Defeat Windows

This article is mainly dedicated to one of the most favorite Linux distributives – Ubuntu Linux (including Edubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, and other something-buntus).

The last 6.10 version is really amazing, it gives the user full control over the system, and the pleasant human theme can force anyone to fell in love with it. It supports 93% of Desktop hardware from start and 85% of mobile hardware (laptops). I can say, yes, the 6.10 can be a proud for the Ubuntu Development Team.

The question is whether Ubuntu can really defeat Windows (Vista)?

That Story.

Linux 4.2 Bringing Support For ARCv2, HS38 CPU Cores

The ARC architecture updates for the Linux 4.2 kernel have landed. With the ARC architecture updates in Linux 4.2 comes support for HS38 cores, which in turn are based on the Synopsys next-gen ISA known as ARCv2. The ARCv2 ISA is faster and more feature-rich than their original instruction set architecture. The HS38 cores have a 10-stage pipeline core with MMU support, SMP up to four cores, and other new features. The HS38 processor is still 32-bit and is "optimized for high-performance embedded applications running Linux." Read more Also: Radeon & AMDGPU DRM Fixes Queue Up For Linux 4.2

The Linux Setup - Neil McGovern, Debian Project Leader

I’m the current Debian Project Leader—which is a very impressive title that boils down to being a figurehead for the Debian project. I first started getting involved with Debian in 2003, and have wended my way through various roles in the project, from designing t-shirts to being the Release Manager for the last three releases, Lenny, Squeeze and Wheezy. In my day job, I’m the engineering manager for Collabora, an open source software consultancy which is fairly similar—basically making sure that all the engineers are happy and helping unblock any problems that come along.
