10 Best Ubuntu-based Linux Distributions

In addition, Ubuntu is supported by a vast community of dedicated opensource developers who actively maintain contribute to its development to deliver up-to-date software packages, updates, and bug-fixes.

There are numerous flavors based on Ubuntu, and a common misconception is that they are all the same. While they may be based on Ubuntu, each flavor ships with its own unique style and variations to make it stand out from the rest.

In this guide, we are going to explore some of the most popular Ubuntu-based Linux variants.

1. Linux Mint

Used by millions around the globe, Linux Mint is a massively popular Linux flavor based off of Ubuntu. It provides a sleek UI with out-of-the-box applications for everyday use such as LibreOffice suite, Firefox, Pidgin, Thunderbird, and multimedia apps such as VLC and Audacious media players.

Gentoo Linux vs Ubuntu Linux

В материале представлены результаты исследования производительности Gentoo Linux, собранного из исходных текстов с различными режимами оптимизации, в сравнении с Ubuntu 9.04. В среднем различия не столько существенны и по общему зачету наиболее оптимальные показатели обеспечивает режим “-O2”, при котором кроме того был получен наименьший размер исполняемых файлов после сборки. Производительность сборок, подготовленных с использованием опций “-O2” и “-O3” достаточно близка. В случае “-Os” наблюдается как отставание, так и опережение по сравнению с режимами “-O2” и “-O3”, при этом провалы иногда ощутимые, но с другой стороны и затраты оперативной памяти для работы программы при режиме “-Os” - минимальны.

В 21 тесте Gentoo и Ubuntu продемонстрировали примерно одинаковую производительность. В 37 тестах (mplayer, скорость сборки из исходных текстов, производительность игр, рендеринг графики, дисковый ввод/вывод) Ubuntu Linux уступил по производительности Gentoo, благодаря использованию оптимизации для конкретного CPU. В 8 случаях Ubuntu был на одном уровне с Gentoo при использовании опций “-O2” и “-O3”, но уступил сборке с “-Os”. В 5 тестах (sudokut, 7-Zip, некоторые режимы GtkPerf и Qgears ) Ubuntu показал более высокую производительность, по сравнению с Gentoo.

А если еще и принять во внимание простоту установки Ubuntu, то как по мне установка Gentoo Linux не стоит затраченных на нее усилий.
