Dell 1525 laptop 10 days old. I've apparently done something dumb in my quest to get my head around it, because it has slowed to a crawl. 3-4 mins to boot. 15 seconds to open a file window!
So before I give up and start over, one basic clarification. Is my understanding correct on this basic point?
Unlike windows, Ubuntu has no registry and all program data is stored in the program folder. So, installing a program does not affect the speed of the system if its not running.
correct me if I'm wrong.
