    12.04 LTS vs. WinXP

    After talking about it for years, I finally decided to switch from Windows to Linux as my main desktop opsys. I went with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and I have been using it for about six months. I am over much of the initial learning curve and just did a fresh reinstall.

    I run an ole but reliable HP DC7100 CMT with a Pentium 4 3.4 gHz CPU and 512 meg of RAM (see http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport...title_r0001#A0 for details).

    I use the generic video driver and the latest version fixes some problems I had.

    The thing is, I do dual boot WinXP and Ubuntu is sooo much slower. Just comparing the response time of the Dash vs. the Start button but all program loads are so much slower in Ubuntu.

    Why? Is it me? Does anyone else experience this?

    But I ain't going back to Microsoft, no way.
