Linux Optimizing Desktop Performance, Part II
Post date: May 24, 2005, 13:05 Category: Optimizing Views: 1272 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: As we discussed in last week's article, for most of its existence, people have distributed Linux as a workstation or a server rather than as a desktop. The default workstation that evolved has existed mostly for use by developers. So, when you install a Linux distribution with a graphical interface, it generally looks like what a developer might want. In addition, it performs similar to how many UNIX workstations work, which can seem slow.

In this article, we continue to look at the Linux desktop in a different light. Here, we think of it as a computer system with a fast interface that we can optimize for the knowledge worker and consumer.
Gentoo Ripping cds using FLAC
Post date: June 22, 2005, 08:06 Category: Multimedia Views: 2194 Comments: 0

The compression rate is for now about 50%, depending on the content of the audio file. Also I found that FLAC encodes VERY fast (~60-140x on my Athlon XP 2400+).
