so i install ubuntu on an old laptop and the user experience was painfully slow.

so i installed lubuntu desktop on it and it turns out to be much better.

now is it safe to uninstall the default windows manager that comes with ubuntu?

this is what the boot screen shows right now:

Unless you are running out of space, you better leave it as it is. I have had problems after uninstalling default x manager(long back... Not sure if they handle it well now)

this laptop has a 40GB HDD :D and has a celeron processor. i am leaving it like this considering removing it would probably just save me 200-300MB of space :D
