My System Specs

Default Ubuntu is huge

I became impatient today waiting for my NH-U9DO A3 so I installed my 2cpu and fired up my FOlding machine. I was searching around trying to find a decent system monitor so I could see the temperatures of my cpus when I noticed that Ububtu is around 20Gb .
@0 Gb what the hell is that this is Linux not Windows, I installed the newest Ubuntu and Fah and that turned out to be 20 Gb thats huge. whtever happened to 5-6 gb those where the days.
I am thinking of Copying all my Fah files and just do a fresh install of Arch using this guide ( with out the VMware part lol) How-To: Install Arch Linux 64bit in VMWare for SMP Folding - EXTREME Overclocking Forums and then reinstall Fah then thekraken.
Ubuntu seemed a little slow I thought that maybe I was just used to my 3.8 Ghz on my main PC but now I am starting to think it is partly becasue all of the Bloatness in Ubuntu.

I personally hate the new ubuntu, the UI is junk. I liked it 10.04 or so the old gnome setup. Guess I'll stick with mint.
