Questions for Ubuntu/Linux users

Discussion in 'UO Resources' started by Old Man of UO, Dec 19, 2010.

  1. I'm looking at the Ubuntu 11.04 beta and have a few questions, having never used Linux before. Any users of Ubuntu/Linux who can help?

    1) Does the AMD64x code give a significant performance boost over the 32 bit code?

    2) Is the 32 bit code limited to 4Meg RAM like windows, and does the 64 bit code open this up?

    3) I want to build a Linux server to use for web design. Anyone using LAMP stack, and is it faster than WAMP for windows?

    4) Adobe doesn't make a 64 bit Linux driver for Flash, and I've read there is a substitute out there. Can anyone point me in the right direction, or am I stuck with 32 bit code?

    5) How well does UO EC client run on Linux, and which emulator do you recommend? Where can I find installation instructions?

    6) What else should I know before making the change?

    Thanks... I'm a real Linux newb.
