Ubuntu vs Lightweight Linux

For long time I have been using ubuntu as my primary Operating System because I install some OS in my computer beside ubuntu, but I use ubuntu most in my computing activities.

Here I will tell you about my experience about using ubuntu than other lightweight linux distributions.

Some times ago I tried some lightweight linux based on JWM, LXDE, XFCE etc, my focus and my purpose is about the speed. Yes, I try them in order to use my computer in fast computing such as applications and performance, they are really fast enough to doing some my jobs such as: just need a second to open application, fast booting, run applications etc.

But some things that I dislike is about feature and performance. I often find some problems such as not stable enough, find some crashes in my computer, no full of application support because some times it difficult to me to find some applications in lightweight linux distro, it different when I use ubuntu - almost every software and application I need, I can find and install it.

For me, ubuntu is rich of feature that support everything my job from applications and stability and ubuntu is ready for use.

It just my personal opinion how about you?

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS for Netbook

For long time I have been a Ubuntu user and almost all my time I used Ubuntu in my daily activities for computing.

I like Ubuntu LTS version begin from Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and now I use Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. Because for me Ubuntu LTS is more stable and it is supported for long time - 5 years for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

Ubuntu 12.04 is good for Netbook

I download Ubuntu 12.04 and install it in my Netbook Acer Aspire One 1 G of RAM, Processor 1.66 GHz, I install Ubuntu 12.04 from USB drive and just about some minutes to complete (it really fast).

Ubuntu 12.04 is saving power on my Netbook. It means getting a longer battery life on my Netbook. In my Netbook ubuntu 12.04 is longer life than Ubuntu 10.04 and my Netbook life almost same when I use Windows 7 in battery life. That is why I love Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

Ubuntu 12.04 also fast in my Netbook and I can run all my job from blogging, watching movies, doing graphic with gimp and Inkscape, Office with LibreOffice etc.

With Unity as default Desktop Environment (DE) make Ubuntu 12.04 is good for Desktop PC, Laptop and Netbook so we do not need Ubuntu Netbook Remix any more.

And personally I like Unity interfaces because besides its look modern Unity also easier to use and faster.

I like default interfaces in Ubuntu 12.04 like themes etc, because for me the default setting is the best for user that the Developer design. But if we don't like the default, we are free to customise the appearance as we want. We can make Ubuntu looks like Mac OS etc.

What do you like from Ubuntu 12.04?
