17 much slower, than previous LTS [SOLVED- sort of]

Postby turtlebay777 on Mon Jun 09, 2014 1:16 am

I have compared relative speeds of how quickly or otherwise 17 reacts to commands compared to Mint 10 and Mint 13.

17 is downright sluggish and tardy on the same computer. It sort of 'thinks about it' and mulls over each command before executing it.

Anyone else noticed?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

My 17 is Mate 32, my 10 is Gnone and 13 is Mate too.

Starange, I've found it to be much faster than 13 Mate! What hardware do you run on? Maybe with older hardware the old ones work better...

Hey gone from 15 with cinnamon 1.8 installed to 17 and I find it very quick and tight.
Linux........... it's an adventure :D :shock:
Desktop; DELL Optiplex Core 2 Quad 8GB RAM
Run Mint 17, 1TB WD black 7200 and Win 7 320GB WD black 7200 (gotta for work)
Also run other distros from a dock swaping out older HDDs for PLAY!!
A happy donor to the effort. If you use it...... DONATE!

Very strange indeed. Must be my hardware.

I got so fed up with it I have dumped 17 and gone back to LMDE 201403 which is massively faster.

Writing solved.
