View Full Version : Kubuntu Lucid is really really fast.

I found that, for some reason, everything in Kubuntu Lucid sped up. a lot.

While in Karmic (using the latest ATI drivers), maximizing a window that fully covers the screen (i.e. firefox) would take a couple of seconds to fully maximize. Now, its instant. (maybe Kwin was improved? or was it the ati prerelease drivers?)

Secondly, Konqueror load time also sped up. It takes less than one second for it to load. Browsing the web with it has sped up a lot as well, while in the past it has been really slow.

Everything else.... also loads much faster.

Anyone notice this?

I tried the live cd after I saw your post, and was stunned how good it was. Lucid is looking to be a great release.
