    Thank you for taking the time to write this post my friend! It was most-kind of you to take the time to help out what has to be (or will be) thousands of people. You are a true gentleman.

    Thanks again,

    Thanks for this. I like it when people don't just give you a recipe to follow blindly, but actually explain the reason behind each step. I've learned some cool things.

    I kept noticing some choppiness (nothing serious, but still) on my system that even disabling "desktop effects" altogether didn't seem to help. Now, with your tips, I can see that the animations were to blame for that and, after disabling them, everything runs smoothly even with some nice effects enabled.

    I get tempted to try it again, do you think it runs on my old desktop (see signature). If I install the desktop, can I delete it again with all the corresponding applications or is it safer to dual boot?

    Your desktop meets the system requirements and should work fine. I didn't quite understand the "an I delete it again with all the corresponding applications or is it safer to dual boot?" part?

    Does the desktop already have Ubuntu or something?

    Thank you for the very helpful info. Some of it I knew, but it was good to have a more complete look at my system (at a time when I was just about to distro hop, again).
