no, i cannot.
because my target is "powerfull machine" (yes, to compare, p4 1,2ghz, 256mb ram ...) i only could go to 47mb after a free. but i only use ubuntu/debian app in offical repos. no (re)compile.
an yes, i can print, remote x and transfert files (with ssh/scp) ;)

since i add ram to go to 768 (oh my god, huge!!!), in fact, i didn't add anything but preload.
since, i can use modern app (firefox, ooo.org). i used these before, but it swaped. i like to use modern app to be "compatible" with Microsoft world.
with preload, this laptop is very very sppedy ;)
