hdmac:6 months hardware might be newer hardware, but might be slower hardware if the drivers (hd, network) are not mature. You are comparing two different OSes on different hardware. ... [by Mucles]

We support an enterprise application running on Windows Server 2008 R2. One of our customers has chosen to install to VMWare, and what I'm finding is that the VM's are relatively slow compared to hardware. Our product development team has advised that many VMs appear to run particularly slow on I/O benchmarks, which impact performance in production.
I have a newly imported Hyper-V VM using Disk2VHD and I've noticed things have been a little slower. Could this be a networking issue on the server or inside the VM? I looked under the configure settings and the network device still has some drivers configured to it.
I'm 3 years using Ubuntu as my default OS, but I notice that Ubuntu will becoming slower after some weeks of installation. All the Ubuntu versions I installed "Ubuntu 10.10, 11.04, 11.10 and 12.04" the boot looks slower. When I make a fresh install, it boots in just 17 seconds... after 2 mouths, this system take almost 1 minute to boot (Slower than Win7).
I have been using Ubuntu for 5 years and love it. What I especially love is how it works on older hardware. When I switched from XP to Ubuntu 5 years ago I did so on hardware that was close to 3 years old - thus I am using 7 year old hardware. It still works fine, but I want a change.
Hey guys. So, I have a difficult time conveying to people why you can't exactly compare console hardware to PC hardware. Is anyone able to explain to me with concrete and knowledgeable examples why this is? I've had people literally compare an APU of a laptop to the APU in the ps4, and it's starting to irritate me. Or perhaps I'm wrong.
i am running #! with Sid sources. i have a laptop that is about 5 years old (i think). my graphics card is a Radeon HD2400 Mobility.now, from what i've read, there are problems with AMD not supporting older cards (including mine) any more as of xorg 1.2 (iirc).
A roundup of excellent open source hardware projects for all occasions.
Free and open source software are no good without open hardware. If we can't install our software on a piece of hardware, it's not good for anything. Truly open hardware is fully-programmable and replicable.
So what is open hardware, exactly?
I recently purchased a set of ASRock Intel i5 MB/CPU combos for a budget
compute cluster. Every time we load up a system and try to boot with a
recent EL6/64 ISO, we get a message that reads:
> This hardware (or a combination thereof) is not supported by CentOS.
