    Do Xubuntu's low-end enhancements make faster PCs more efficient?


    Hello,

    I am planning to make the switch to Xubuntu and read that it is enhanced for low end machines. Since it is a lightweight OS, does that mean that installing it on a high end PC with more muscle could give the PC even more processing power?

    I haven't used Xubuntu but I've used Debian (ubuntu's grandaddy) with KDE and XFCE and in my opinion there wouldn't be much of a noticeable increase in performance on a high-end computer. High end computers are made to handle more demanding tasks so while there might be a slight increase in performance, I don't think it would be anything appreciable.

    Google Phoronix. I just saw an article there a few days ago. They compared U/K/Xubuntu on an up-to-date PC and saw very little difference.
