Now, this makes me think. I wanted to install 12.04 Xubuntu for it's long time support availability. Reading through the article made me wonder. I thought, newer is better. They fixed many things, added something nice ... but I didn't consider loss of performance to be an issue on my laptop. Now I am wondering whether my Intel P6200 with 2GB of RAM can pull off 12.04 even with Xfce. Maybe I should stay with 11.04, but download the 64bit version. I was hoping for 64bit 12.04 thought. Heard they are working on some fixes and stuff.
