Xubuntu 12.10 runs like a charm


I recently installed Xubuntu 12.10 on my old Dell inspiron 1525 (intel pentium 1.86Ghz DualCore, 2GB RAM, upgraded HDD WD Scorpio 512GB) laptop computer and this baby just works. Installation took less than half an hour on really old hardware and now my baby runs like a charm. I can even monitor Broadcom WiFi with “echo 1 > /proc/brcm_monitor0” and turn it off with “echo 0 > /proc/brcm_monitor0” . The system speed is amazing. I am not going to buy Windows 8 or MacOS. Stay with X.
I will keep on loving my ancient Idefix for another 5 years 🙂
