My motto has always been, you gotta pay to play....Buy right or buy twice. If it is your main desktop and in 2012 doesn't have 8GB of RAM, upgrade it. If it is a laptop and already maxed out, repurpose it or donate it.

If are on ubuntuforums as much as I am, trying to help newbies out, you will understand my frustration when some complains about the latest Ubuntu "being slow" or "not working with my hardware" only to find out later they are trying to run it on a Pentium 3 with 512MB RAM....

Unfortunately, as I said, those things are not always an option. I know people still using 10 year old laptops because they simply do not have the money for a new one. It's a very real thing. I used to be in a similar situation, and currently mostly am right now. Working 40-55 hours a week and usually only have about $100 to play with after all the bills have been paid for the month. And that's with no cable, or home phone, just basic 30/25 plan from Verizon Fios, electric bill and water bill and a cheap Boost Mobile phone which my monthly payments are down to $35/m. And of course house and car payments, insurance and the likes. And that's if you can even find a job around here. Here in Virginia, we have one of the highest unemployement rates of the nation ( half of the nation to be exact ).

Hell, even a cheap 1 bedroom apartment here will run you $800-$1,000 per month just for the rent. Which is more than a lot of peoples house payments in some areas.

Not everyone has extra money to stay current with things that are so trivial.

sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop
or
sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop

Logout, change session to lxde or xfce, log in, be happy.

Minor tweaks. Words can't express how happy I am at being able to control nearly every facet of my layout through javascript/css.

Really? I find CSS to be a horrible crappy way of defining layouts.
