"I've been running Jaunty on a Gateway 503GR. This is an older PC with a 3GHz Pentium IV CPU, 2GB of RAM, an ATI Radeon 250 graphics card, and a 300GB SATA (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment) hard drive. Even on this 2006 vintage system, Ubuntu ran quite well.

"Specifically, here's what I've found, so far, in the new Ubuntu (http://www.ubuntu.com) that I liked, and I think you'll like as well.
