Nah, that's all. I unchecked, restarted... it still takes like, 38 seconds to start, and when it starts it takes a few seconds for me to click anything. Also, the programs take almost three whole seconds to start up. It just feels a bit laggy, since I'm used to everything opening right when I click on it. Maybe I just need to use the applications? Even Chrome seems a bit slower than I'm used to.
But yeah, that's fine, a lot of my friends told me Windows is slow. ^^; Maybe they were right. I just figured a faster computer would fix that kind of thing. Well, it's still not THAT BAD, just not what I'm used to.
And that's so cool, I used to get lots of Gnome themes on deviantART, and it turns out one of my favorite Gnome artists also makes Windows themes! How cool is that?
Thanks a lot for the help, the window management isn't very tough, I think it's mainly the menu and software installation I'm gonna' have a hard time getting used to. It's good to see that the Ubuntu Forums aren't the only nice community out there, phew. Thanks for being nice to a newbie like me.
I know you guys might not like hearing this, but do you know if there's any theme to make it look more like the default Ubuntu theme? The one from Lucid Lynx (the pretty one, lol). I don't care what side the buttons are on, but I like the round buttons with the X and pointed arrows, I think it's very sleek and stylish.
Hey, even for that, maybe if there's a theme that makes it look like KDE4 that would be even cooler? Of course, I'll go look for myself, but if you guys already know some good ones that'd be sweet.
Again, thank you so much. Hopefully I can be patient and stick with this a little bit longer. I kinda' like to be challenged. Windows is all like, techy and hacky and stuff. Like, you have to use unofficial things to do what you want, and there's all these special names for things you type in to find stuff new settings. I mean, it seems roundabout, but it's almost like a fun challenge.
Nothing like Ubuntu. In Ubuntu it's just like, everything's already there set up for you. You can customize a lot of things and make it look however you want, but it's all like, built in and really simplified.
The people in Windows seem like they're more into their computers and hacking stuff and trying to make it more fun in their own way, without official support from the Windows people. I think its cool that the community makes its own way to stick it to the man, I guess. Anyway, kind of exciting, even if it's confusing. Hopefully now I'll be an expert in Windows and Ubuntu too.
I kinda' miss compiz, though.
