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.

it is not that the gui is slow.
it is not that the os is slow either

it just is that there is services running that you do not need.

BTW - you pick which OS I was referring to, they all have this problem

The entire system is slow. Don't tell me about services -- while they're a problem (WTF needs BIND/NFS running on a desktop install?), that doesn't fix GNOME's/KDE's slowness.
