There are so many distros of Linux around it's difficult to single out one over another without upsetting someone.

Of course, slowness is a subjective matter. Kernel isn't really the issue, a bloated UI is the problem in most cases.

My own experiences are with Ubuntu (primary distro), my own PC runs on Ubuntu Studio 12.04 and it's very responsive (once I'd turned off Network automount). The main distro is a bit slower to respond using the standard Gnome desktop. As always, it's available system memory which can also impact performance, this is very noticeable when Ubuntu Software Centre crashes (pretty much constantly) on every launch. Seems to need way more memory than any other application I have to use.

I stopped using Fedora when they started demanding newer graphics cards for rendering a (imho) crappier modern UI. I was happy using Fedora since 2003/4. I'd rather use XFCE desktop now, and that's purely for responsiveness.
