After a couple days of using Ubuntu 14.04LTS and even switching back to Gnome I decided that with my system specs it would be better if I installed
Lubuntu instead. It's really night and day compared to Ubuntu and I haven't had any freezing yet, even while trying to push the system.
The only issue I have is playing streaming videos. Youtube on the actual youtube site is fine, but if there is a youtube video say on ATS there will
be a slight lag to it while watching. Vimeo is absolutely terrible, it seems to only play the video every 3 seconds. There are a few other
sites/video players with the same type of problem.
I'm using firefox which has flash and I've installed lubuntu-restricted-extras. I've tried using Midori but that doesn't really work at all. Not
sure what the problem is.
Seriously thanks to anyone who has or will help me, there's definitely a steep learning curve when dealing with Linux.
