Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu My search for "the perfect Linux operating system" this time brings me to the latest incarnation of Ubuntu, version 5.04, also known as the "Hoary Hedgehog Release". Previously I was using Fedora Core 4, however due to some minor bugs it had, I wanted to try something different.

I know what you're going to suggest ... You're going to suggest I use some window manager designed for a 386.

When I say "Linux" I refer to the specific distribution I've mentioned. ALL modern Linux distributions are fat and slow, with the possible exception of spartan stuff like Slackware, but even that I'm not sure about anymore.

The average user doesn't care whether they should refer to it as Linux, GNU/Linux, Redhat, or Fedora Core -- what matters is that it's slow on their system and they don't like it.
