I've done a fresh install of ubuntu 12.04 on my pc which also has windows 7. What I'm confused about is why Ubuntu is SOOO SLOW? I'm new to Ubuntu and trying to learn about it as so far I really like it, I just wish it'd be faster and I could mainly use it instead of Windows 7
Also, I know other users have mentioned this before, but occasionally it gets very very slow and almost freezes and then the screen starts to spazz and flicker.
What can I do to make it faster?
My laptop is kind of crappy, I just don't understand why Win7 works better.
