Re: Which Ubuntu Distro is best for me?
5 minutes?! That's practically unbelievable (and unusable if true).
1. We need precise data, so please time it next time and let us know exactly how long.
2. Does this happen all the time?
3. How many apps and web pages do you have open at once when it does happen?
The next time your system is this slow, please post the results of:andback to this thread.
It is possible that you simply have too many apps and/or web pages open at once. Web pages are as bad as apps. I know of one instance where a user was wondering why his box was so slow and had thirty different web pages set to automatically open each time he invoked his browser. Not good.
So, please provide requested info before we can help further.
