The diffesnce in speed between Slack and Ubuntu which be just a small one. I wont worry about it much, if anything you could try recompiling the kernel on ubuntu and try getting rid of a few things and try optimizing it a bit more. Ubuntu keeps things pretty generic. If you feel ok doing that though. Ubuntu has pretty good support though for gaming through wine, at least that what it seems if you go to the wine site and look at the distro that most of the games seem to be tested on.


Yes you can install only XFce during the slackware install. Default DE is KDE, also comes with XFce, flux/black box, window maker, fvwm.
Thanks a mill man!!! I'll fish around and look into the particulars... You've all been a great help!!!
