Surpised by New Ram usage.

Just wondering if anyone is aware of less ram usage. Last month running steadily to desktop was 450'ish mb. Now just booted up today and showing 365mb. Whoaa! Rebooted twice and staying at that level. A fluke? Improved KDE resource handling? Or I made my sandwich with the wrong kind of Mushrooms? :s...

Re: Pear OS 8 Linux Distribution Will Be Inspired by iOS 7

Yep built mine own from personal selection of parts. Smaller,compact case but still a desktop with dual 22" displays.

Re: Repositories - announcement

Yep replaced the source and did a sudo apt-get update.
And you made it clear about space and parameters.
Thanks as was thinking it was just one continuous location or path.

Re: Gimp 2.8 single window

I can see logical reasons why the developers would want it the way it is but those reasons would only apply to serious users. Surely casual users shouldn't have to be faced with the mess that's presented on opening. Anyway, as I said, I'm a casual user only and this isn't a GIMP forum. Rant over. :...

Re: Nice review

Nope wasn't talking wubi. Was talking about newbies choosing. Or even read stories about installing next to win7 and then promptly wiping there D: as that was setup by others for them as their data partition in windows. Being clueless about partitions assumed it was safe. Then there is the confusion...

Re: Nice review

Ahhh I see sounds like tho that specific distro's don't need to make their own custom installer? More in the way like Ubuntu installer that everyone uses in other Ubuntu based distro's ? Or a universal Debian installer where it is developed by the main distros and all other flavors use. Like to poin...

Re: Nice review

Installers can be as user friendly as needed. Do way with cryptic sda this and sdb that and go to more human graphic layout like actual hardrive or pie chart with human names for partition. "This is your Windows C: partition" This Blue slice has win7 installed on it. This white partition is free and...

Re: Nice review

Yep his only negative points are valid. As the installer could be made more friendly tho no issue for me. As never trusted the do it for you and always needed to see the partitions and what is happening with them. And more polish on software updater. But being so new and already being neck-to-neck w...

AMZ Downloader

Yep had to look up what it does. And wondered why it's a default app? Believe very few users actually use Amazon for their music,movies,etc? Also cleaning up getting rid of apps I don't use like Thunderbird,etc... And Lo & Behold AMZ Downloader doesn't show up in Synaptic. So how do I uninstall it? ...
