Is Debian faster than Ubuntu?
I don't know where I heard this from, but I heard Debian is supposed to be faster than Ubuntu. I have a copy of Semplice Linux 3.0 (Debian) and I'm using Xubuntu 12.10 (Ubuntu) already. Is Debian faster? I haven't used it yet (just feel like asking

I've not used Debian, but I suppose that it could be faster. Mainly because you can do a minimal install, and then add only what you want.
If you run it with KDE, all the dependencies and then add some CPU intensive apps, then it probably won't be much faster at all.
So... it's faster in the same fashion that Slackware can be faster.
You've also got to remember, Ubuntu adds quite a bit of what could be called 'bloatware'. Which, while making it an easy transition distro, does slow the system a bit.
