Kubuntu 10.10 Technical Review

Filed under
Ubuntu

When I first started using Linux about 6 years ago I ran Mandrake with KDE. So KDE holds a special place in my geek heart. But with the early KDE SC 4 releases things just weren’t working well and I ended up becoming a refugee in the Fluxbox world.

I always gave Kubuntu a spin but never felt that it held its ground next to its Gnome sibling, Ubuntu. However, with the KDE SC 4.3 release I dived into Arch Linux and found myself loving KDE all over again. Kubuntu, though, still didn’t do it for me. So when Muktware went looking for a Kubuntu 10.10 review, I jumped at the occasion, and here it is!

To give some perspective to this review, I will be comparing Kubuntu to my KDE SC experience in Arch Linux and also my Gnome experience in Ubuntu.

Ondemand vs. Performance CPU Governing For AMD FX CPUs On Linux 3.17

In the tests shared yesterday of looking at the AMD FX-9590 CPU on Linux and other CPU benchmarks from this weekend, some Phoronix readers raised concerns about the CPU scaling governor differences between the AMD and Intel hardware. The AMD FX CPUs continue to use the CPUfreq driver by default to handle their scaling while modern Intel CPUs have the new Intel P-State driver. Beyond the Intel-specific P-State vs. CPUfreq, the AMD CPUs generally default to using the "ondemand" governor while with Intel desktop CPUs on P-State it generally ends up with the "performance" mode. Some Phoronix readers found performance vs. ondemand differences to be unfair, but for AMD FX CPUs, there isn't much of a difference in our common CPU torture test benchmarks found in the Phoronix Test Suite.
