    Here's something ultra-awesome: an enthusiastic triple review and head-on comparision between 64-bit editions of Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot, Kubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot and Linux Mint 12 Lisa with Cinnamon on my new test box with two SSD, featuring hardware detection, installation speed, desktop look & feel, updates, stability, and more. This will blow your socks off, guaranteed.

    Good. I honestly don't know how you manage one review after another plus all the other articles, especially because they are 'baked' nicely and not pulled out of the oven prematurely. :)

    Kubuntu uses the KDE Partition Manager (you mentioned GParted ?), which is fine on my setup.
    I have never used an SSD disc(k) and would like to ask what you mean by "and since we're talking about non-mechanical, SSD devices, the location on the disk makes no difference."
    Thanks.

    SSD are a bunch of cells with equal access time to each one, give or take the latency and resistance of tiny copper wires somewhere in the cell array, probably on the microscopic level. Normal disks are rotating plates with variable radius and angular speed, hence seeks are not uniform across the surface and data on outer side if the plates will be more quickly accessible, by a few ms. Of course, depends on many other factors, but that's the gist of it.

    And how I manage - I'm a busy little bee.

    Nice.

    Regarding the "...the fourth installation slot is empty for now. So what distro ought to be the first one to go there?" - I suggest openSUSE/BTRFS/Cinnamon.

    centos 6 would be perfect choice :thumb:

    awesome article :thumb:

    just one thing why default cinnamon and button theme why not mixing them with new ones ;)


    chakra is made for speed and stability so we wonder how perfect it work on ssd ;)


    ROSA/mandriva review also needed when released as they creating LTS so worth checking on non-ssd atleast.
