Ubuntu flqvour eqsiest on cpu

US flag

I have this macbook air from mid 2011 and I want to use an ubuntu based distro on it. At the moment I'm using kubuntu but my one problem is that my cpu sometimes has alof of difficulties keeping up with what I'm throwing at it. Is there a flavour that makes a noticeable difference in cpu usage or is it all so small that when it hits 100% on kubuntu nothing will make it better?

What I'm also wondering is if different ubuntu flavours or distros in general can react different when the same program runs. So for example when I run a program on ubuntu and on kubuntu that there could be a noticable difference in hardware resources or is this not really a thing and can I just look at cpu usage from the flavour/distro itself?

Sounds like a dual-core i5 or i7 with up to 4GB RAM. That's a little *lean* by modern standards. It's less important what desktop you use, but more useful to know what applications / tasks you're hoping to throw at it. Chances are any modern browser will eat the RAM more than the desktop will.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
