This is just a question rather than a typical blog post. I know blogs aren't really supposed to be used for that, but I think it's justifiable since it's not that important or urgent, even though it has some practical applications. So I'm not "stealing" attention from other users with more pressing matters over there.

The question is basically "what gets more work done":

a) higher CPU usage per process (limiting less or not limiting the usage at...

Made the move to Linux - a kind of personal intro

Posted 11-13-2011 at 01:15 AM by forbinproject

About a month ago, I tried Linux for the first time on this system with a dual-boot between Vista and Ubuntu (Vista came with the computer). After about a month of working with a dual-boot system, for whatever reason, the Vista partition was not as stable as it could have been; that is, there was some sort of new winsock error that forced a very long boot to happen.
