Xubuntu 19.04

It looks a lot better in 720p than 1080p.

Xubuntu 19.04 on my Acer C720

After trying Xubuntu 19.04 on other devices and liking everything but the way it looked, I figured I should give it a try on my old Acer C720. It only has a 720p screen so the little things I noticed in 1080p were much less noticeable. This laptop is old and low spec’d (Celeron CPU, 2GB RAM, 32GB HD) so I had been running BusenLabs on it previously (which was also really good) but I needed something a bit more up-to-date than Debian stable. So far I’m really liking it and just wish I could get it to wake back up after being locked or going to sleep. It makes for a good setup to quickly pull up and knock out a few things or play some ROMs in Lutris. If I could only be bothered to look into the screen lock issue this could be a long term setup.
