    Sluggish Heron

    I just did a clean install of Hardy Heron from Gutsy. It seems to me that Hardy is sluggish compared to either Gutsy or Feisty. EVen worse if you upgrade a Gutsy to Hardy, the whole system just slows down, which is the reason I did the fresh install. Also, fonts are not as nice as it was in Gutsy, what happened. Apps like Login Window, Network, etc either open up a minute or 2 after or go to a black hole. Applets on the panel disappear and reappear, my trash outlet keeps disappearing and reappearing (I combined both upper and lower panels) Firefox 3 does not want to cooperate, tabs either open or close. My ipod is not anymore recognized by banshee which was resolved in gutsy in the Removable Drives and Media, but now the Ipod icon is not there, even choosing it in Nautilus->Preference->Media does not work.

    What gives, this is suppose to be an improvement.

    Posts like yours encourage me to wait to move up to Heron. I ask myself, what's wrong with Gutsy? Am I happy with it? Does it run well? The answer is it's great, so why change? My system purrs like a kitten with Ubuntu 7.10.

    Re: Sluggish Heron

    Totally agree. My upgraded system's slow as a dog now. It's like moving from XP to Vista. Even typing this message, I get a few seconds delay before the characters show up.
    What on earth has happened? Even with only Firefox and a terminal, my load average is over 4!!!

    I just upgraded to 8.04 today, and I totally agree that the fonts are much worse. In fact, I'm going to go post a new thread about it and my other issues now. This is all quite discouraging.

    Thumbs down Re: Sluggish Heron

    It was sluggish on mine also. What's annoyed me the most is the desktop theme keep switching back and forth between human interface theme and some other theme when something happened on the gui.
