RE[3]: do it on 112 :-p

Member since:

It isn't overly snappy, but it is fairly responsive until you start opening more than 2 or 3 apps or use multiple tabs in Firefox. Then it slows to the speed of molasses in winter.

"So you can't run it on that mount of memory then? Thanks."

If you read the first part of my post, you would have understood that I said you *can* The results are merely not as satisfactory as running with 256 or more.

Besides, the issue being debated is GNOME itself, not the apps. Obviously if you start running multiple apps on a system that is underpowered, it doesn't really matter what desktop environment you use- your performance will suck. It is not GNOME's fault that I choose to put that old HP Pavilion through its paces and page like a lunatic.
