What is Xubuntu?
Xubuntu is a complete GNU/Linux based operating system with a Ubuntu base. It is lighter on system requirements and tends to be more efficient than Ubuntu with GNOME or KDE, since it uses the Xfce Desktop environment, which makes it ideal for the Viglen MPC.
What we have done to optimise the Linux distribution for the MPC?
Viglen have tuned and tweaked this distribution for optimal performance on the MPC through the use of various techniques and tricks. Load times and startup times have been greatly reduced through adaptive analysis techniques and removing unnecessary startup scripts. A daemon monitors applications that users run, it is through the analysis of this data, the daemon predicts what applications users might run, and fetches those binaries and their dependencies into memory for faster startup times. The system is configured with light-weight applications that provide office and web browsing functionality making the MPC perfect for every day use!
