I'm running ubuntu 7.10 on a p4 1.4GZ T42 Thinkpad with 512 of ram 40 gb hd. It take longer than my windows pc. please give me some idea of what I need to do. I used the same machine with PCLinuxOS 2007 and it FLEW!!! so I don't think the hardware is the issue. can I have some suggestions about less a less bloated linux OS?
