"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
"1) X.Org server 1.6/GNOME 2.26. The first part gives you
peppier video performance, while the second gives you a really,
nice integrated desktop. Particularly nice features include the
integration of the Brasero CD/DVD burner with all other Gnome
applications and improvements with both audio, PulseAudio, and
multiple monitors control and support."
