This may look like an off-topic question leading only to a discussion, but bear with me for a second here. I don't mean to discuss which of the two is better or whatever, I'd rather hear some serious facts. The question:
If I have an ultra fast machine, let's say Intel Core i7, SSD drive, nvidia GTX 560 card, why wouldn't I install Lubuntu on it, just as I use it on my netbook?
I mean, does Lubuntu have any disadvantages to it when it comes to new hardware support, or whatever? I think it's strange to say, "well, this PC is fast, so let's install GNOME3 on it, it will handle, so whatever."
If I don't need an eye-candy system, but I still need to perform it properly, that meaning have latest drivers, use all my latest HW properly, etc, is Lubuntu a good choice or not?
