[QUOTE=FlamingSpaz;35870910]Are those stats on Ubuntu only or could I somehow get them on CentOS?[/QUOTE] It came with ubuntu server to advertise 'landscape', however it should be possible to edit the motd to show the stats [code] #!/bin/sh cores=$(grep -c ^processor /proc/cpuinfo 2>/dev/null) [ "$cores" -eq "0" ] && cores=1 threshold="${cores:-1}.0" if [ $(echo "`cut -f1 -d ' ' /proc/loadavg` < $threshold" | bc) -eq 1 ]; then echo echo -n " System information as of " /bin/date echo /usr/bin/landscape-sysinfo else echo echo " System information disabled due to load higher than $threshold" fi[/code] That's what I found digging around my motd

Also, i installed compiz and enabled wobbly windows. When i move windows, the "title" of the window and the showing window itself get's "seperated" so there comes this white line when moving it around?

Looking at Fedora for my main PC. Look's very good. But ugly GNOME 3 in the way :suicide:
Silly me, installed mpg123 and made it play a song.. Needless to say, I had to listen to the whole Jazz song :v: What would be the tiniest audio player out there for Arch?

[QUOTE=Moofy;35877344]Yea i know, but i dont know if I would like Fedora.[/QUOTE] well, it would be pretty much the same as any other distro, difference being packages and the package manager
[QUOTE=hpqoeu;35877732]well, it would be pretty much the same as any other distro, difference being packages and the package manager[/QUOTE] This is what i mean.. People are like: "arch, arch, arch", but isn't arch just a distro with aur and such? Because i am used to Ubuntu, and i wan't it on my main PC. But i also care about the customization and looks.
You can do any costumization on any distro. Basically distros are just a pack of default programs with linux kernel. You can always install anything if you have most of the basic build tools (gcc make perl etc) or if you have a package manager, you can install kde, xfce on Ubuntu/Fedora, and you can costumize all the inner workings of the kernel. Most people prefer Arch and Gentoo because they come with a nice package manager/ports-like system and they come with no DE/WM so people can install a clean environment of their own with no bloat. First decide what you want, a stable distro, a distro with fast access for the latest binary releases, or a completely costum and fast distro with latest apps. Then do a little research what each distro comes with and what it features.

[QUOTE=Tucan Sam;35880351]Because with most people here it is Customizations > productivity[/QUOTE] ..And who cares? Not everyone here works in an enterprise environment and needs a perfectly stable and 100% productive system...
speed and stability are number one for me, then productivity. Customization is barely on the list at all. This usually leaves me using a cutting (not bleeding, never bleeding) edge debian build.
