Why is Linuxmint 6 XFCE CE faster than Xubuntu?

Postby mintph » Thu Mar 26, 2009 4:03 am

I've tried the Linuxmint 6 XFCE CE on my laptop and Xubuntu on the same laptop... both clean installs (not dual-boots) and Linuxmint XFCE CE was faster and more complete out of the box with Java etc pre-installed.

How does Linuxmint make it faster?

Or why is Xubuntu slower?

I find Linuxmint 6 XFCE CE perfect for my needs.

mintph,

That is the result of some proprietary, magic incantations from merlwiz79. :-)

Because the devel team here is glorious and all shall bow to them :D... this is actually the first distro which has made me excited for updates.
