    WOW

    Lubuntu has rescued several really old machines for me. I have 12.04 running on two machines that are a decade old now.

    Perhaps it's time I tried it too! What are you running it on?

    I've been really interested in buying some low end computer and giving Lubuntu a spin on it to see what kind of performance I get. I'm such a big Xfce fan though that I'm afraid I'd get annoyed by the desktop.

    LXDE is really no lighter than XFCE. It's all dependant on how a distro packages it and the bloat they incorporate. http://blog.xfce.org/2012/05/questio...-4-10-release/

    If your an Ubuntu user use the minimal/netinstall image and add XFCE. It's nothing like Xubuntu.

    Hello!

    Well, this one in particular has 3770K and SSD Vertex3 on Sata3
    DDR3 2channel on medium 1600MHz (but max-ed out for CPU by default)

    I tried RAID0 with SSDx2 and with latest Fedora Beta, but speed wasnt anything to mark out.

    Now im stumbling on GRUB time-out "problem" (thread) , that rises boot time without input to 300% of original. da*n it!

    boot, in comparsion
    5sec with Lubuntu,
    with win7 on Vertex4 SSD (should be slightly faster hard-drive) it was about ~18 seconds, AFTER the POST. So, thats why the jaw-drop when I saw LXDE in action.

    Sorry if anyone had hoped me to say "jaw-drop" to decade old rig.
    Im sure key to fast boot up here is SSD, so no IDE & HDD.

    ...but
    I also have one (lets say scavenged and resoldered) 8-9 year old rig AMD Athlon1800+ with HDD and DDR1 - it runs faster than with XP SP2.
    With Linux I had to deal with obsolescent graphic-cards, dirver problems etc. You can look here my old thread about that (it has photos also ).But this old rig helped to rise trust for Ubuntu in general.
    It didnt make me to exactly jaw-drop, but made me very happy, after week of man-hours.

    I would put (L)ubuntu on every computer, if you ask me!
    I would even do it for free, like charity or something!
