I’ve been using Lubuntu for almost five years following the ending of long term support for Windows XP on my Asus EeePC netbook. After upgrading to Lubuntu 18.10 a few weeks ago, the laptop refuses to show me a menu bar. It has also been very slow (first world problems…) for many moons now. So, I’ve decided to take the plunge and migrate to Xubuntu in lieu of Lubuntu.
We have been using Crashplan for several years now, so I can always download my files from their server, but took the last twenty four hours to copy my files to an external drive and will start installing Xubuntu shortly. If you have old harddrives, Sabrent makes an inexpensive enclosure that has no screws.
