Thread: Second Go with Linux

  1. #11
    Ubuntu 10.10 is even better than 10.04. after running the new version for a couple of weeks now I'm staying put with Ubuntu. 10.10 is rock solid and stable.
    When I ran PS3 Media Server under Vista it would choke streaming HD video via wireless after a couple of minutes.
    I run the same windows version under Wine 1.2.1 and I had only a couple of pauses after 40 minutes of continuous streaming when my laptop went to low power mode.
    I do have some mouse issues gaming under Wine I still need to figure out though, other than that it's all been pretty good.

    The LINUX version of PS3 Mediaserver works just as easily. No need to install it in WINE. I currently have it installed on unRAID as a plugin along with Subsonic and Transmission for Bit Torrent. Ubuntu 10.10 is quite nice, I like it alot but am still using Windows 7 for some strange reason?!? I will install 10.10 soon I am just being lazy.

    I've recently switched to Linux Mint. It's Ubuntu based and has a more polished Gnome desktop and more repositories. I may try the Linux version of PS3 media server on it since for some reason I could never get it to work under Ubuntu. The latest Linux Google Earth works like a charm too under Mint.

    I have Ubuntu 10.10 here someplace to try, but 10.04 is my service version, because it is a long term support.

    Google, VLC, and the regular stuff I use was easy to install on 10.04.
