    Re: Is Ubuntu getting bloated and slow?

    I really can't say haven't been using it long enough to tell from older versions. I have only been a Ubuntu user for bout 6 months. It seems to run good to me, or else I wouldn't use it. It doesn't outperform Gentoo IMHO, but it sure is alot easier to use.

    That's why for all my desktop needs I use Ubuntu.

    I feel it's getting faster.
    The position of YES and NO in your poll should be switched.

    Subjectively, I notice no difference between the releases in any perceivable performance. And, as the release still fits on a single 700 megabyte CD, I don't find it bloated any more than it needs to for a one-size-fits-all distribution.

    I've been using ubuntu for years now,
    And I haven't been noticing a difference.
    Firefox still locks up occasionally.

    I actually find it strange that the overall user experience hasn't improved with all these cpu cores.

    Not sure for me it's lighting fast on my machine. Just did a boot chart and loads at 23-sec. I just recently purchased a new machine with vista installed and talk about bloat-ware. It uses a 10Gig partition just for the recovery. Had to make my own recovery cd's, wait i had to make 4 Dvd's. Sounds like he's splitting hairs. He also agreed that benchmarking on one laptop does not give much validity to the benchmarking.

    Re: Is Ubuntu getting bloated and slow?

    I find my system usually becomes slow after using it for a while, because I tend to install stuff. Whenever a new release comes out, I always do a fresh install, and it seams lightning fast compared to my old install. I usually manage to bog it down during the six months between releases, and by the time the next release comes out, I desperately need to reinstall.
