Software

Which menu-applet is the best? I cannot possibly give an answer to this that will apply to everyones taste, but what I can do is give an overall review of the three contestants and tell you what I feel is the good, and bad, things about them.

Gimmie

Gnome menu-applet 2Gimmie is the name of a pretty new contender in the Gnome-menu contest. It consists of four dropdown-menus:

Gimmie Menu-applet 3Linux is the menu for bookmarked folders, devices and media, printers, and computers in your network. This is also where you find “Settings” which contains everything that would normally be in the “System”-menu in the original Gnome menu-bar, like Synaptic.

Ryzen 7 2700X CPUFreq Scaling Governor Benchmarks On Ubuntu Linux

With this week's Ryzen 5 2600X + Ryzen 7 2700X benchmarks some thought the CPUFreq scaling driver or rather its governors may have been limiting the performance of these Zen+ CPUs, so I ran some additional benchmarks this weekend. Those launch-day Ryzen 5 2600X / Ryzen 7 2700X Ubuntu Linux benchmarks were using the "performance" governor, but some have alleged that the performance governor may now actually hurt AMD systems... Ondemand, of course, is the default CPUFreq governor on Ubuntu and most other Linux distributions. Some also have said the "schedutil" governor that makes use of the kernel's scheduler utilization data may do better on AMD. So I ran some extra benchmarks while changing between CPUFreq's ondemand (default), performance (normally the best for performance, and what was used in our CPU tests), schedutil (the newest option), and powersave (if you really just care about conserving power).
