Re: Turning Off "Eye Candy" / Speeding Up Ubuntu
I am running 10.04 LTS on the very same netbook and I have just written a phd thesis in LaTex and all my statistics etc in R. This computer is not underpowered in any way. However I am loathed to upgrade to Unity or Gnome 3 (I have tried them out) because 10.04 runs so nicely, and the newer versions just don't.
As for suggestions, maybe install gnome 3 and try fallback mode or try 10.04 (using metacity).
