I've actually looked at that.  With Ubuntu 10.04 it was a lot more 
responsive in the old-style desktop instead of Unity.  Now they have 
Unity required, though I see now they have a Unity-2D at least.  I may 
try Ubuntu with kubuntu-desktop installed and just get rid of Unity 
altogether just to see if it performs better.  Then I might try similar 
in Fedora Core to give it a fair shake as well.  Guess we'll see.
