I reinstalled Ubuntu on a machine that already got an older version of ubuntu (I currently run on Ubuntu 13.04 while I was running on 08.04 in 2008). The machine didnt get any notable changes except than my DVD burner died (no link with the installation of Ubuntu - the burner simply died). My question is : is it possible than my system runs slower? I mean if i compare Ubuntu 08.04 and 13.04, 13.04 seems to be less responsive.
I run an AMD 1600mhz - it was an Athlon 3000+ i think - with 1.5G of RAM DDR2. My computer is, I know, an old boat. I use it mainly as a file backup system and to surf on web sites that does not need many plugins.
