I have never used Ubuntu before and wanted to give it a shot so I could use a particular application. I installed it as a VM using VMware Fusion 3.x. There is something that seems a bit "cluncky" about it. I expected things to be really fast and smooth, but there seems to be some lag between the time I click the buttons (in the launcher for example) and the time that you really tell that the machine is responding. Also, when I boot linux, the screen (inside the VM window) gets a little tiled and then smooths out. I bumped up the VM's RAM to 2 GB which I thought should be plenty for Linux. This could all be quite normal and that I am just spoiled OS X. Anyone else experience this?
