Don't get me wrong, but don't try to optimise something if you don't even know where to start or if you don't have a specific issue.
Seriously, Ubuntu is out of the box already very good compiled, there's hardly anything to do which would not require in-depth knowledge of the system (except changes for special hardware, like SSDs). If you'd want a better system performance, you'd need to re-compile and customise the kernel. If you'd want to speed up the boot, you'd have to mess GRUB2 and upstart.
