  • It's just a flashy version of Debian with more cruft attached, off the high horse ;o)

    Perhaps, but it gives many the confidence to move from Windows to Linux which can't be a bad thing.

    That is true, yes. Ubuntu puts new users in a relatively familiar and easy-to-use Linux environment, so I can't blame it for that - if you switched to Linux from 2006-ish onwards, then chances are your first distro was Ubuntu (it was mine). But it becomes a living hell to use after a while, really. I switched to Debian after 6 months.

    ElementaryOS is epic, it's the niceness of mac and the security, more-advanced, fastness of linux. @Andrei uses it aswell I believe.

    Well, I'm deploying services based on 14.04. It's been relatively kind to me on the testing I've done. Only problem is, 14.10's going to be ASS to deal with the upgrade... what with the switch to SystemD and having to learn a new init system's service management. I'm not going to lie, I like Upstart.

    One thing I like about 14.04 is that xen-hypervisor-4.4-amd64 is in play.

  • Has the upgrade path been released yet? Tried to do-release-upgrade from 12.04 LTS but no dice.

    Checked https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes and the upgrade to 14.04 LTS is not there.

    Ubuntu got me in touch with Linux but quickly afterwards I realized that Debian is the true distro for me, mainly because it is less bloated by default and you have to figure out things yourself because alot isn't pre-installed compared to ubuntu, this is good for your own experience because you have to try to make things work on your own which gets you more familiar with Linux in general.

  • With all these "Windows of Linux distros" comments, I'm starting to question my decision to go with Ubuntu for all my VPSes. I have become quite comfortable using Ubuntu 13.10, but since I am still in the early stages of my Linux transition, do you think I should consider using Debian, or maybe another distro?

    Don't rust guy, wait for few weeks for bugs to get fixed, upgrade now might break your box :(

    If you're comfortable with it, stick to it. Ubuntu may be "bloated" as a desktop Linux OS, but it's a rock-solid server OS, as are Debian and CentOS. The server install isn't too heavy, anyway.

    No, you don't have to. It'd be a good idea though and most knowledge you have from Ubuntu will transfer easily with Ubuntu being Debian based. I would maybe try setting up a new box with debian and seeing how comfortable you feel - should you have issues you can stay with Ubuntu, if you feel comfortable with Debian it wouldn't be a bad idea to switch over.

    At the end of the day though, as long as your performance isn't suffering and you know what you're doing you can configure Ubuntu to run just as well as Debian. I am personally a Debian purist (on servers, I use OS X at home) because it makes my life easier to use the same OS everywhere and I prefer to trim less fat out of the box.

    Installing Observium on Debian

  • You know, for someone who does not know much about computer, windows/linux is no different. my mom/aunts don't know how to use windows visa/windows 7 after upgrade from windows xp, even from office 97 to office 2007. so there is no different to change from xp to linux.

    What benefits does Debian have over Ubuntu? I use OSX at home (couple Hackint0shes with Apple keyboards and mice :) ), and on the road (MBAir), after abandoning Windows 10 or so years ago. When I found out that OSX was just a GUId UNIX system I jumped into Linux...and Ubuntu.

    I use a hackintosh too ;) The main benefit of Debian is that it comes as a more bare bones system, that's about it really. Almost everything is preconfigured and it runs more or less the same as Ubuntu being based on Debian, Debian just comes with less you probably don't need. There is some minor stuff that could be taken either way like your own thoughts on the Ubuntu groups philosophy and focus (with their new mobile OS etc), or the fact that in general the Debian repos are on older packages (for stability and security, although some people don't like not having the bleeding edge from install).

    One other thing I like about Debian is the maturity and how widespread it is on servers, any problem I have or thing I want to do is easily found on google with 100s of different guides. Ubuntu has a great community but not as good as debian for server admins imo.

    If we're talking about on a desktop however (or even some less automated dedis) Debian can be quite different and require some extra steps for install. On a VPS it should be as easy as reinstalling with a new template. If I were to use a flavour of Linux on the desktop, it'd probably be Xubuntu or LMDE (probably Xubuntu though).

    Anyway I'm glad Ubuntu use (almost) latest kernel 3.13. Here is my finding: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTUxNTk

  • Elementary is nice, I used it for about six months. It's not the answer to being ubuntu free though, it's based on Ubuntu.

    Not necessarily. A smaller system footprint, less active services, provide a smoother experience.

    But since both use the deb packaging system, one can easily use specific Ubuntu packages on Debian without compromising system stability.

    Debian does. Your post seemed to imply that the question should have been 'What benefits does Ubuntu have over Debian?'

    Precisely, thats why I was confused by your "not necessarily" statement.

    Right. You were asking a rhetorical question. I took it literally. ;)
