I recently installed the Ubuntu, after being an Fedora user for 5 yrs. I use Linux whenever i can in my profession as an java programmer. During college we used it extensively to do our project work, in both C and java.
I have been following the redhat and fedora distributions for 7 yrs now.I feel Ubuntu is gone a long way in making my life simple. I am particularly impressed by:-
- Boot time
- Hardware support
- Setup tmpfs on /tmp
- Install smBackup for system backup.
- change vm.swappiness value to 10
I have used it in Fedora also, this would help a lot.
i have a 2GB ram, i would be evaluating it before making it 0 ;-)
