I have been using Ubuntu Netbook edition for the past two years now (it merged with regular ubuntu at some point, and I'm using the default environment: Unity). I need something faster, more lightweight, with longer battery life. I can sacrifice packages since the things that I do on my netbook are pretty much standard:
- A video or movie
- Document editing
Is there any Linux distribution that will give me noticeable, superior results in the above categories and be more lightweight than Ubuntu?
