I just settled down with my ideal setup, a dual boot of Windows 7 and Ubuntu, but for some reason Ubuntu's running slow for me. I heard that Ubuntu was pretty small and resource light, but should I switch to Lubuntu or Xubuntu? It means a lot because I have all of my shared files on my Linux partition so it would mean moving everything all over again.
Here are my specs from system monitor:
Ubuntu Release 12.10 (quantal) 64-bi5 GNOME 3.6.0
Hardware Memory: 2.9 GiB
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T5850 @ 2.16GHz x2
Graphics:NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS.
The computer itself is from 2008, I'm really trying to squeeze all I can out of it.
I'll be on this page for the next couple of hours so I'll respond to any replies. Thanks in advance!
