    Have you successfully installed the 12.4 in your machine ? Or are there no
    issues like lagging or running slow. ?

    I just put 12.04 on my gigabyte tablet, its only an atom 1.6 but does have 2GB RAM.
    I have to say its quite sluggish, probably because of the intel graphics (same problem you will have) even though I just put an SSD in it not horribly slow but I was getting my hopes up for a far better experience.

    just tried MeeGo, works but flaky (though running that off a flash drive), chromiumOS, no boot , it was on Kubuntu 10.10 which was nice and fast but KDE not my fave frontend.

    have not tried gnome classic yet but then whats the point
    Anyway, 10.* is best to go on an older machine
    resistance is...

    MVC is the current buzz in web application architectures. It comes from event-driven desktop application design and doesn't fit into web application design very well. But luckily nobody really knows what MVC means, so we can call our presentation layer separation mechanism MVC and move on. (Rasmus Lerdorf)

    Before run your Ubuntu into your PC, its recommended to check it specification for that applications.

    I have 12.04 running happily on a 1.6 gig single core with 1 gig of ram...

    actually scrub that, I have Lubuntu 12.04 installed on a Pentium 1.... and running fine...

    so I reckon that that whateve5r your machine... Ubuntu will run fine.... it doesn't have the huge requirements of OSX or Windows

    Ubuntu will run on it, but might be slow. Ubuntu is made to look pretty. It uses the Unity interface which sort of resembles a Mac.

    Ubuntu is one of the Linux distros that are meant for desktop use, but that doesn't make it a practical choice. Just like Windows all of that "pretty" stuff will bog you down.

    I suggest using Debian linux. Ubuntu is based off of it, and the install processes are almost identical from my experience.

    Debian is real big on stable releases of software making it very secure. It is also light weight. Making it a good choice for slower machines.
