My setup

I don’t know if this will be of any interest to a lot of people, but perhaps it could be of inspiration to a precious few.

I run Ubuntu MATE 20.04 on a Lenovo ThinkPad X220 i5 260GHz laptop with 12 gigs of ram.

I prefer to run the LTS versions of the system – simply because I want to have a reliable system rather than the latest fancy updates. As I am writing this, the next upgrade of the LTS (20.04) just came out yesterday.

Below you can see the specs on my present and previous system:
