    Ubuntu 20.04 Performance

    Two late model Intel-based machines running a clean install of 20.04 with the Ubuntu Budgie desktop. I have noticed a general performance improvement in day-to-day usage. Anyone else notice this?

    Yes my new XPS 15 9570 - I7 + 32GB ram installed 20.04 and the performance is everything I could have hoped for, the distro is my now my daily driver having tried many others recently this one just feels right for me.

    Is it the same in lighter sessions like LXDE?

    Budgie is tight, isn't it? I want to know how Solus (who invented Budgie) get's their OS to load in like 5 seconds.
    XFCE is really good for resource management as well.
    The Ubuntu team really tightened up GNOME-3 for this last release, and it runs fantastic also.

    But the one I am the most impressed with lately, is KDE. They have taken the Plasma Desktop from a resource hog, and turned it into one that sips resources like a cup of tea.

    I don't know about the difference between 18.04 and 20.04 since I've also done a hardware upgrade with I7 processor and SSD drives, but boot-up is less than 10 seconds for what used to take 2-3 minutes. Software loads and does "stuff" when I click it - like, nearly instantly. Nice!

    Ubuntu 20.04 runs great on my 2010 desktop and perhaps a little bit faster than Ubuntu 18.04.
