This morning I decided, on a lark, to switch my Linux laptop to another distro. I've been using Lubuntu, which has worked fine. My biggest complaint with it was that it would bog down and sometimes crash if I dared have too many tabs open on Firefox and a big project for coding. Also, it just wasn't very pleasing to interact with. It was functional and fine.
So this morning, after perusing some other lower spec Linux distros, I decided to give Bunsenlabs a try. It's a Debian-based distro, the same underlying distro as Ubuntu/Lubuntu, though they have different layers in between. And so far, it's very nice. The graphics and feel are smoother and no crashing, yet. But I haven't really put it under load so we will see how it progresses.
