How is the Lubuntu performance into a Cubieboard 2?

Hi! I did a video for appreciating the performance of Lubuntu into a Cubieboard 2.

Cubieboard Pros:
  • Use as server or desktop.
  • A7 Dual-Core CPU, then you can use the native ARM Ubuntu version.
  • 1GB RAM.
  • As desktop it'll works really good for watching show TVs & movies, listening music, view/edit documents, web browsing and chat.
  • As server I have one  without a reboot in months.
  • Power: Just 5V & 2A! Have your home server all the year for a few dollars!
  • Price: ~60$.
  • Works with Lubuntu Desktop or Ubuntu Server!
  • Totally silent, no fans.
  • Really small.
  • Really fast for its specifications, because it uses a NAND memory as hard disk.
  • Connect a SATA hard disk directly to the motherboard (you'll need a more powerful adapter that 1A).
  • 4GB for Ubuntu (2GB free with extra codecs & apps), but you can use a microSD as external storage. I'm using a microSD as /home with all documents.
Cubieboard Contras:
  • It's a little computer. Don't forget it isn't a i7 ;P
  • This is a problem of this distro version (1.07 / Lubuntu 13.04): As server it works perfect, but as desktop, when you open an application some times the screen blinks. The cubieez distro fixed this. I can't research this problem yet. But do not bother, it's happen once in a great while, it isn't happen with videos.
You can watch here the Lubuntu performance:


The Lubuntu version is 13.04 from this image.

If you have any question, please, leave a comment :) Cheers!
