    If you use LTS (I think everyone should), you only need to do it once every 3-4 years.

    Same for Windows:
    -Fresh re-install every 3-4 years (Whether the Windows version is upgraded or not)
    What in tarnation is antivirus?

    It feels like its straining to run on my computer.. like my desktop is running in Java or Shockwave or a Virtual Machine.. it still runs okay.. i just figured my problem was because i used Wubi to install. my system is kinda old so I'm used to the lag and CPU spikes..

    So if you install ubuntu with wubi it is much slower than a regular install?

    For me too things are running very slow. I had on my laptop (centrino 1.6 Ghz, 512 Mb RAM) Jaunty, Karmic, Lucid (now) and all of them are laggy. WinXP is very fast in comparison. I tried also in Karmik Xubuntu and it was a mess as well.
    Now I'm waiting maybe for Lubuntu to have a normal user-experience with Linux. Didn't try other distros. I have on my desktop Kubuntu Lucid and it runs pretty smooth. I guess Ubuntu doesn't like laptops.

    In all likelihoods, yes.

    Upgrades are never better across version.

    If your computer was made for a particular operating system then it runs the best on that operating system.

    With Linux it's a general rule that if a distribution is released about the same year after your laptop was made then run that distribution.

    Distributions behave differently depending on at least Ten criteria.
    1. Level of freedom-hysteria the maintainers hold to
    2. Target architectures of the distribution
    3. Idiosyncrasies of the distribution maintainers
    4. Proprietary support by hardware manufactors
    5. Whims of the kernel developers for the kernel version chosen
    6. Xorg developer idea change for the version include
    7. Problems introduced by package rot
    8. Interface changes including notification sub-systems
    9. Lack of support for old features in new software
    10. Unsolved problems that were ignored and worked around

    It's the choice you make by choosing this ever-changing distribution. We can look to Microsoft for example, who continuously and reluctantly patched XP for Nine years. The GUI and driver interfaces didn't change.

    From 9.10 to 10.04 lots did change.
    Hal was dumped for input device support in Xorg.
    There was the inclusion of the boot splash which coupled with kernel mode settings ( KMS ) was guaranteed to shake up older NVidia cards.

    This game of hop on the next train only guarantees you'll always be riding a train. You never stop. Always in flux, it's insanity.

    If 9.10 was working for you then by all means download the ISO and install it.

    32bit
    http://mirrors.gigenet.com/ubuntu/9....sktop-i386.iso

    64bit
    http://mirrors.gigenet.com/ubuntu/9....ktop-amd64.iso

    Everything else
    http://mirrors.gigenet.com/ubuntu/


    Good example, 1. 6.06 fast on my 1.0Ghz / 1GB ram.
    2. 6.06 fast on my core duo 1.6Ghz / 1GB ram
    3. 6.06 fast on my P3 600Mhz / 256 MB ram

    All other versions have been hit or miss or not even worth mentioning.

    But I don't blame anyone. Find one that works.

    Re: Ubuntu 10.04 ,, slower than 9.10 (Personal opinion)

    I have a 9.10 installation I've been using since it came out and decided to install 10.04 to have a comparison. I converted my two 1TB data drives to ext4 under 9.10 and was pleased with the performance difference. For the last few weeks I've been hammering 10.04 doing the same thing, running vmware, moving files around, etc and I have experienced performance issues, mostly in the disk I/O area. I have also seen a slow memory leak that eventually uses up essentially all system memory while using vmware. The only way to get it back is to reboot (reminiscent of windows.) Yea, 10.04 boots like a lightning bolt but my virtual machines run much slower. I reboot back under 9.10 and the performance issues are gone. Keep in mind the virtual machine files are the same ones on the same drives, only the OS is different.

    Dont get me wrong, I think 10.04 is fantastic. Hopefully in the near future the performance issues will be resolved and I'll be able to use it as a replacement for 9.10.

    As a follow up to my previous post, I learned the kernel changed and there was a disk i/o performance hit due to the way the new kernel handled ext4. A quick change in fstab to include nobarrier fixed my performance issues with 10.04. I immediately saw the performance increase back to what I was getting with 9.10.
