Currently running Cassandra XFCE
I would like to shut down as many of the services i dont need. At the moment by the time it get to the desktop about 350MB of ram is being used... the comp only has 768 ram. My Mepis 7 laptop install running KDE was booting at 230MB or so - now trimmed down to 170MB after shutting down services.
XFCE vs KDE... whats going on here? Is the Ubuntu base really that bloated?
Anyway the question what services are essential in Mint? which ones can i shut down without worry?
I am also assuming that run level 5 is the default
im asking here in the XFCE forum because i figure more of the XFCE users are looking at improving performance
