Upon developing a quite solid desktop operating system, Ubuntu seems to be moving forward with new innovations, this time, I would say, pushing the boundaries of the GNU/Linux world even further. As one would expect for a GNU/Linux distribution with such a great buzz and following, there are alot of critiques and people tired of hearing about Ubuntu all the time, people that hate it as an operating system for whatever reason, but that doesn't really change the fact that it is still the most popular flavor of GNU/Linux with the biggest community and hence the greatest number of minds dedicated to making it even better. You gotta admit there's alot of potential in that kind of setting. So yes, I would concede that Ubuntu is currently among few distributions with such a great potential for innovation and I would not be surprised if it continues to "set the standard" for mainstream GNU/Linux desktop in the future.

FreeBSD, or arch?


OK,

So, I was thinking to myself, whether to replace my FreeBSD installation with Arch Linux, I installed it on a seperate partition the other day and found it very fast to boot to a fluxbox desktop (7 seconds, including login), but not as stable or secure as freebsd. Now, because I am going to use my computer to run a gamign server as wella s play some games, I need it to be secure, fast and have good video drivers. That isnt a problem for me, because I have r200 and r300 cards, which means I can use Xorg drivers Eye Thank God.

So, I am still unsure what to use, Linux has easier gaming, as in, not having to find different libs. FreeBSD is more stable and secure, but Arch is way faster.
