The GNOME 3 edition features the latest release of the GNOME 3, which is GNOME 3.8. While the default GNOME Shell is still the same that I’m not a very big fan of, there are some useful and very user-friendly features that factor nicely into my desktop computing needs. The calendar is not one of those features I like, but the clock, me likes! read more...

Fedora Core 6, Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy Eft), Fedora 7 Test 2, and Ubuntu 7.04 Herd 5 (Feisty Fawn) vs. the stopwatch...
We have compared the 32-bit and 64-bit performance of Ubuntu and started a performance comparison of Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Xubuntu, but how does the performance of the upcoming Feisty Fawn release compare to that of Fedora 7? In this article we have enclosed benchmarks from Fedora Core 6, Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft, Fedora 7 Test 2, and Ubuntu Feisty Fawn Herd 5. In gaming and desktop benchmarks, which of these Linux distributions is faster? We hope to answer that question today.

This guide explains how you can run virtual machines with VirtualBox 4.2 on a headless Fedora 18 server. Normally you use the VirtualBox GUI to manage your virtual machines, but a server does not have a desktop environment. Fortunately, VirtualBox comes with a tool called VBoxHeadless that allows you to connect to the virtual machines over a remote desktop connection, so there's no need for the VirtualBox GUI. read more...

64-bit Desktop: SuSE vs. Fedora vs. Windows XP

Up
vote
Down

The 64-bit versions of SuSE and Fedora are compared against both the 64-bit version of Windows XP and the 32-bit versions as well.
To get a well-rounded breakdown of where Linux is going, and where it trumps (or fails against) Windows, we took the two largest 64-bit Linux distributions, their 32-bit counterparts, and the Windows XP 64-bit public beta for a test drive. The way that we are running the benchmark is slightly unique; we do not recompile or optimize benchmarks per hardware platform. Our goal is to see which out-of-the-box operating system performs the best with as much support as possible.
[If you don't already have a 64-bit box, here's a shortcut to building a 64-bit system based on an Athlon 64 dual core processor or a cheaper single core chip.] read more...
