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.

Windows XP and Server 2003 ran snappy on a PII-450 with 192 MB of RAM??

I haven't seen buntutu run but man what a ludicrous troll, XP runs like crap on a pIII-600 with 512mb here, 2k runs even worse and I listen to people rant about the performance on their 1.8ghz machines all day long. Ubuntu must REALLY suck, I'm almost going to have to try it to see, a five minute boot I mean really?

Yes, that is FUD.

I cant even get Windows 2003 INSTALLED on a machine with 192MB of RAM. The installer told me that a have too little RAM.
