My computing experience dates back to the eighties when DOS was brand new and home machines ran on CP/M. From building my own systems I have some understanding in hardware and other complicated things but it is my believe that an OS has to be easy to use and to configure. That's why I use Ubuntu.

Lubuntu certainly is a good choice of a lightweight desktop if you don't need much of other applications that come with stock Ubuntu. Nevertheless personally I did not experience that much of a performance boost as compared to any other flavour.

We can not give you any hardware recommendation, as the performance experience is highly subjective and depends much on applications you use. I can only say that until a few months ago we had stock Ubuntu 14.04 32-bit running stable (though not really fast of course) on an Atom single core Samsung NC10 2GB RAM.

"cable is so hot" appears to be a hardware issue (broken cable, wiring, broken jack) unrelated to Ubuntu. Did you try to replace it?

comment An für sich - richtig?
Ich bin auch im Süden aufgewachsen und haben "an für sich" noch nie gehört, eher so etwas wie "an e fürsich" oder "an a fürsich" also eine knappe Kontrakur.

@Em1 also, wer Deutsch, Englisch, oder Griechisch spricht, sollte die Aussage verstehen - das muss man doch nicht weiter erklären, oder? Andere Sprachen halte ich hier für nicht angebracht. Du kannst Dich aber gerne an einer ausschweifenden Erklärung versuchen, was Bettler und auf Knien rutschen angeht... wo ist Deine Antwort?

This appears to be a quote translated from Greek, likely it is a Greek proverb.
