You have an entire thread already dedicated to your sluggishness, where many have attempted to help you. It is NOT normal that a machine of that speed and RAM is sluggish with Mint Gloria. You do have a systems problem somewhere, which obvously you have yet to sort out. Please re-enact that thread and give us more data to help you.
Gloria would never have been released as a final version if it had performed that poorly on such a computer, as the fault would have been reported long ago. You are attempting to taint Linux in general because your
system is sluggish, which is an invalid argument.
what the hells your problem dude! if i was to taint linux as you state, i would have made far worse comments about it and switch over completely to XP again. i have read far worse comments, ALL over the net regarding bucket LOADS of issues with linux and i mean BUCKET loads including un-resolved issues with linux.
im no GEEK or a geek guri on linux - im only submitting my experience i have had with LM/Ubuntu. not all of us can afford cutting edge hardware to get LM/ubuntu to perform as good as xp. im a fan of both m$ and linux so im free to express what i think of both OS
Yes ive threaded many posts both on ubuntu and lm forums with the appropriate data needed - but with no resolvent - yes the simple answer is, get a better machine for gods sake, but why should i spend heaps on a machine just to run bloated OS (vista / linux) to do my every day simple tasks - taint linux....i dont think so...you taint newbies...i do think so
no need to take submitted post so seriously dude - just get on with it like i do with my sluggish performance on my machine running linux. MacPuppy i must admit runs very good, so that may be the answer for me.
