    I could go through my bookmarks and paste a bunch in here but I think it would be better for you to look at the sticky threads where these have already been gathered. You will find lots of help on most all ubuntu related subjects. Surely enough to keep you busy for a good while.

    What is happening slowly? Please give as much detail as you can. Do you have any specifics on your hardware and your ubuntu version and configuration? How much disk space, memory, etc. As much as you know. Do you notice something specific that seems slow?

    Try to answer this and we'll see where to go from there.

    loading times etc. it just got a bit faster randomly actually.. maybe its because its 5 am and the machine has been on all day?

    Hi, I figured you had a ati or nvidia card but you have intel graphics you can look at this link and see if it helps.

    i will have a read, probably tomorrow as im really tired.

    im running 11.04 64 bit version. not yet, but im reading through a couple articles about the first things to do after installing ubunto 11.04 and following the instructions, so i imagine i will be getting there. would that speed things up?
    no im not running into classic mode.
