    Lubuntu Vs Xubuntu

    I have a comeputer that is about 10 years old and I would like some advise on what to do. Right now it is running Windows XP but it is not the fastest. What is the difference between lubuntu and xubuntu? Also which would you recommend of the 3? I am looking for preformance + features, but if i had to choose one i would choose preformance. Thank you

    Re: Lubuntu Vs Xubuntu

    Take a look at these:

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Xubuntu

    There are almost alike performance wise so I'll decide on which one you like visually. Ubuntu might be out of your league, dependent on your hardware spec. Also can you provide those specs?

    If they're too low, you can also try this distro:

    Lubuntu is the lightest, and so far, it looks like what you need.

    However, could you tell us more details? CPU, RAM, HD size?

    Regards.

    Below are the specs for the system. I sounds like xbuntu has more features and might work well with Xbuntu. Is that what you would recommend?

    512 MB

    I would recommend "Ubuntu 10.04 LTS". I have had great success installing it on several older PCs, which were running XP.

    Re: Lubuntu Vs Xubuntu

    I was expecting much less. That's looks like a P4, isn't it?

    It is enough to run regular Ubuntu 10.4 LTS, but it won't be the best experience. I think Xubuntu would be the best choice.

    Just some thoughts,
    Regards.
