Which is the best Ubuntu Flavor for an old laptop?
I am totally new to Linux. I downloaded ubuntu 12.04 and installed it on my old laptop with 512MB ram, 1.66 ghz processor on a partition of size 10GB( with windows xp on another partition.) Now when I boot to linux it shows Lubuntu at the start screen(which i found out is a lighter version or something, may be because of low specs) .
Now when I run ubuntu and try to browse 5-6 tabs on firefox it starts getting sluggish. Do I need to switch to an older version of Ubuntu or is there any other fix to this??
Thanks in advance!!
