    I might use Virtual if I had space on the HDD for that. I've run others off Live images to look at them but mine is an old dinorsaur and I just don't want to tax it so much.
  2. Re: Best Version of Ubuntu: LTS or Current?

    Which is "better" depends on the user. I stick to LTS releases because I have only one computer and it absolutely has to work reliably and not be messed up by an update. So LTS is "better" for me....

    Re: Has Ubuntu lost it's Ubuntu?

    If not Ubuntu, then Lubu, Kubu, Xubu, Edubu... these are community-developed "distrolets" fully endorsed and supported by Canonical. Xubuntu users who care enough to join the mailing lists and help...

  5. Re: Differences between Linux distributions

    Many Linux distros are built for "niche" markets. They may not use the same kernel or include the same drivers. Some distros are a good fit for older, modest hardware (Lubuntu, Xubuntu, Crunchbang,...

  12. [SOLVED] Re: Trying a new DE, does it effect performance?

    Ubuntu updates everything that needs updating - everything that is installed. But you can choose "only security updates" and "only long-term-support versions" if you're one of those paranoid people...

  15. [SOLVED] Re: Trying a new DE, does it effect performance?

    Xfce as a desktop environment is not much "heavier" or slower than the ultralight LXDE desktop. But Xubuntu may be "heavier" or slower than it's younger sibling because of the installed applications...
