Care for some memory tuning maybe? Add these lines to the end of your '/etc/sysctl.conf' file:
# Modification of Swappiness according to this URL:
# http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p= ... stcount=43
# '100' swaps at maximum rate = good for slow machines with little RAM
# '0' tries to avoid swapping = good for fast machines with lots of RAM
# Linux Kernel's default value is 60! (this sucks!)
... then reboot so that the changes can take effect (there is a way to activate them without rebooting ... it's just I don't remember it at the moment Laughing )
This should increase the perceived speed of your machine and make things 'snappier' .... it sure as hell did on my systems
Reload them with this command for no reboot:
