I got Ubuntu 11. It ran OK, but no speed improvement over XP that had slowed down drastically on that PC over the years. Ubuntu 12.4 came out and I upgraded. No real change. I tried to upgrade to 12.10, but it refused, saying that it couldn’t find a video driver for my vanillaest possible Dell Celeron PC. I tried it again a couple weeks ago, and it upgraded without the video driver. Now, that PC is dead in the water – it won’t load the x-windows gui interface. Fortunately, it’s dual-boot so I can go back to XP on it. Gotta repartition my hard drives back from Linux to Windows format, though.
I don’t understand the attraction to Linux. Support is less than there is for Windows, and it’s a way Way WAy WAY bigger learning curve to go from XP to Linux than from XP to Windows 8! I got a new desktop with Win 8, and I LOVE it.
