|I discovered a minimalist GUI called XUbuntu |
I quite like xfce myself. I switch often between Unity (which did take me a few months to get used to) and xfce (which I've traditionally used on all of my unix machines for years now), but...
|So now I've installed Ubuntu 12.04 Server LTS to match the OS I'm using on my live webserver. |
Get a real server OS. ;-) No, that's not fair, because I do use Ubuntu in a server config on some stuff, but I prefer FreeBSD on my servers and Ubuntu on my desktops.
FreeBSD has a sane init and file structure. I hate chasing down issues when you try and do something non-standard on an Ubuntu server.
|That still didn't get me in business but now that I have a GUI via XUbuntu I'm going to try reinstalling my 256MB PCI video card to try and milk a bit more performance out of this thing. |
If you're using nvidia cards, make sure to use the proprietary drivers. The open source ones are terrible.
