why did it take 20 minutes to boot and then run like a turtle?

Thats a really good question that would be a lot easier to answer with some information like the specs of your computer.

I have Xubuntu installed on a fairly low-spec laptop manufactured in 2002, and the XFCE desktop boots quickly and is snappy (well, at least when compared to the Windows that was on there). If you can post information regarding the specs on your machine, it would help.

How much memory do you have ? What applications are you running ? Do you have adequate swap space ? Has it always run this slow as it may have just performed a routine disk check ?
