After waiting for Ubuntu 9.04 release date, and 15 hours upgrading from Ubuntu 8.10 to Ubuntu 9.04, i dissapointed with Ubuntu 9.04 performance. Ubuntu 9.04 is much slower in performance rather than Ubuntu 8.10. And after googling a while, looks like i’m not alone, i found this thread complaining about Ubuntu 9.04 performance. So what happen to Ubuntu?
First after installation, i tried to exploring what’s new in it. But what i found is a big dissapointed. Sometimes an application freezes, especially when i want to close Mozilla Firefox 3.0.9, it freezes. And i need to force quit, arrgh…..Then i feel lot slower when try to change windows between applications, there is delays approximately 1 second to change windows, and tabs in mozilla firefox. And these didn’t happen in Ubuntu 8.10. Now i have to turn off some compiz animation, so it will faster a little bit. And other applications also have the same problem in performance, it really drop.
Second, boot time is slower than Ubuntu 8.10 with all same startup process it takes 3~4 minutes to boot. Third, it also consume more CPU and Memory resources. My PC specs are Intel Pentium Core 2 Duo 2 GHz with 2GB of RAM and onboard video card.
I don’t feel comfortable using current Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope, should i downgrade to Ubuntu 8.10 Interpid?
How about you?
