The above, and Ubuntu is quite slow relative to other *nix systems.
It's got a lot more user friendly stuff, and this tends to take up CPU time and memory >.<

Still trying to decide if I want Ubuntu or Kubuntu. I will be trying one of these.

Kubuntu is very nice! It's alot snappier and polished than Unity, IMO. Just be prepared to go thru the settings and tweak it to your needs.

Yeah, the latest KDE releases have been very good. I was surprised how snappy it is these days. I'm waiting on this to be fixed before I really consider switching to KDE though: https://bugs.kde.org...g.cgi?id=307965
Nothing more annoying than seeing tearing when watching fullscreen video. I thought I might be able to get around it by setting a window rule in kwin to totally suspend compositing when smplayer was open (which is an awesome feature BTW ) and using opengl output in mplayer. it worked for some videos but still got tearing in others. Oh well, at least the next KDE release will finally have a fix

That is awesome!! That seems to be where I am hearing most..

No HDMI audio (nVidia) since upgrading from 12.10, not sure if its an OS or nVidia issue.
