I am worried that this thing will run slowly. I plan on making the most of the OS. If I stick with 10.10, then I plan on following this:
http://www.unixmen.com/linux-tutorials/937-things-to-do-after-installing-ubuntu-1004-lts-lucid-lynx or something similar for 10.10.
Do you believe that the
E1505 laptop can handle such a beast?
If barely, then what are some good approaches to tuning the Ubuntu OS to make it run faster?
I will install
XUbuntu if I have to, but I am not thrilled about the idea (because I think it comes with less stuff).
What is the major difference between the two by the way? Also, would it help if I recompiled the kernel after installation? I have heard that it is a major pain to do that and it can break things.
Let me know if you have questions.
