New to the world of Ubuntu, and I've been poking around the last few days because I finally got around to trying it! It's awesome so far but it's really sluggish on this PC...
I received a 'busted laptop' from a friend, not a bad Sony Vaio with a first gen i3. However it has half the RAM in it, someone took a stick out. I thought it was 4GB (down from 8) but I was mistaken, turns out it's just 2GB. I probably should have checked first!
Anyway, it's a bit sluggish. I installed the 64bit version, so it's a bit suspect that maybe I overlooked 32bit. The reasoning was that the site for the iso says (For systems with LESS than 2GB of memory). This is right at 2GB... So, any experienced users suggest I move to 32bit based on lack of memory?
Side note/question, but may be of importance, I thought I installed 14.04, but ran updates and noticed it's at 14.10. Maybe I just downloaded the wrong version completely. Are the updates what pushed it? Feedback is GREATLY appreciated! ::)
