How do I speed up the latest version of Ubuntu on a VIA C7-M 1.6 GHz based netbook (HP 2133)? For example, full screen videos are very slow in the default configuration.

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

What type of videos? If you're talking about high resolution videos (720p and higher) you're not going to get spectacular result, really. – alex Apr 10 '10 at 17:12
Why was this down voted so much? Sure, not much information is provided, but it's still an acceptable question. – RJFalconer Apr 11 '10 at 10:55

Have you tried Ubuntu Netbook Remix? It is aimed at running better on netbooks.

Or you could try out XFCE (or xubuntu) or LXDE as lighter-weight desktop environments.
