The Truth About Ubuntu Dapper Drake

Filed under
Ubuntu

This staff member of ourtweaks.com is risking a lot by telling you the truth about Ubuntu Dapper Drake (hereinafter called Ubuntu) because I'm sure ourtweaks.com will lose some visitors after reading this article. So, please keep an open mind and hear what this ourtweaks.com staff member has to say. I want to make it clear that (1) I am not the person who runs ourtweaks.com and (2) I have the utmost respect for the Ubuntu developers and its fan base who take time to help out other people.

I'll bet you are wondering why I would try to hurt Ubuntu. Well, the answer is simple: The Ubuntu fan base outside of their own Ubuntu forums (oddly enough) just love to tell blatant lies about Ubuntu. Their newest tactic is pretty clever, I admit, and that's what got me to install Ubuntu. They like to claim Ubuntu is like Firefox and, of course, Windows XP is like Internet Explorer. Their main meaning is that while Ubuntu might take awhile to get used to, soon you will realize how much better it is and you will end up only using Ubuntu. I go hey... at first I didn't like Firefox but it grew on me and now it's the only browser I use... so maybe I should be giving Ubuntu a try. They also love to say you can run Win 98, Win XP, etc. in Vmware in Ubuntu... so now I'm "sold" and I'm installing Ubuntu. As you will read below my one week with Ubuntu was a nightmare.

Full Story.

One week is not enough

Well one week is not enough to get used to Linux and see its advantages. I would recommend this person use Linspire and most of his "problems" won't be there. I have had only minor problems with Ubuntu and they were solved easily by reading the forums. That said, I don't think Ubuntu should be recommended to complete novices. And installing the non-free software is not that difficult on Ubuntu. All you have to do is run the .tar.gz installers from the Adobe and Real websites.

The Truth

"The truth","The facts",a plan of Microsoft.I think there's no need to argue about which os is the best one for this guy.A real linux user know the truth.

Octa-core Cortex-A53 hacker SBC sells for $60

FriendlyARM’s $60, open spec “NanoPC-T3” SBC runs Android or Linux on an octa-core Cortex-A53 SoC packed with wireless and media interfaces, plus 8GB eMMC. The over-caffeinated board builders at Guangzhou, China-based FriendlyARM have shipped their highest-end hacker board yet. The NanoPC-T3 is almost identical to the NanoPC-T2 board, but swaps out the quad-core, Cortex-A9 Samsung S5P4418 SoC for a layout-compatible S5P6818 with eight Cortex-A53 cores that can be clocked dynamically from 400MHz to 1.4GHz. Last month, FriendlyARM’ unveiled an $11, quad-core NanoPi M1 single board computer with similarly open source hardware and Android and Linux software. Read more

  • FFmpeg 3.0.2 "Einstein" Multimedia Framework Released with Updated Components
    Today, April 28, 2016, the development team behind the popular FFmpeg open-source and cross-platform multimedia framework has released the second maintenance release in the stable FFmpeg 3.0 "Einstein" series. FFmpeg 3.0 was a massive release announced in mid-February, which brought in numerous existing changes, including support for decoding and encoding Common Encryption (CENC) MP4 files, support for decoding DXV streams, as well as support for decoding Screenpresso SPV1 streams.
  • Using bubblewrap in xdg-app
    At the core of xdg-app is a small helper binary that uses Linux features like namespaces to set up sandbox for the application. The main difference between this helper and a full-blown container system is that it runs entirely as the user. It does not require root privileges, and can never allow you to get access to things you would not otherwise have.
  • Build System Fallbacks
    If you are using Builder from git (such as via jhbuild) or from the gnome-builder-3-20 branch (what will become 3.20.4) you can use Builder with the fallback build system. This is essentially our “NULL” build system and has been around forever. But today, these branches learned something so stupidly obvious I’m ashamed I didn’t do it 6 months ago when implementing Build Configurations.
  • Node.js version 6 is now available
