This question already has an answer here:
I installed Ubuntu on my Acer Aspire One (2 gig memory, 113G disk available) from the www.ubuntu.com site using the Windows Installer option. It is even slower than Windows. I could make a sandwich in the time it takes to just open up Firefox, and Libre Office is no better.
I thought that Ubuntu is supposed to be a nice fast lightweight operating system. What gives?
