Benchmarks "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?"

Agreed, after having had to use Windows(tm) all day, when I get home, I fire up this Linux box and chill out using KDE.

It is the same feeling you get coming home from work, slouching on the sofa wearing your favourite slippers.


Comfy !

Clearly you know what I mean. Windows users here most likely don't even understand what I'm talking about, used as they are to working around all the quirks in windows. Many don't try to properly use the scrollwheel anymore (like, for scrolling - in windows, it only works in the active application. Not over tabs, not over the taskbar, not over the volume icon, not in non-focused apps, and often not even in the focused app - esp in dialogs, you often have to click the scrollbar first. WTF does microsoft think the scrollwheel is made for???)
