EDIT: Anyone know if Linux Mint Debian XFCE behaves better then? I've been reading the XFCE is pretty cool being so customizable. How do you guys like it in comparison?
"including a newer kernel if necessary" .. can you please explain this? I thought the kernel was the same as the OS (Linux Mint 12 Gnome)? Or is the kernel what TYPE of LM12 it is (gnome, KDE, debian, etc)?

It's so slow! I have the new Aspire One 722 netbook (amd dual core c60 w/turbo core), 4gb ddr3 memory) and everything is so slow responding. I click on the menu button at the bottom left and after click, it takes at least 5 seconds to bring up the start menu. When I search for something, one letter shows every 1 second with lag. After clicking an icon, it takes a good 5 seconds to load something so basic. Windows 7 x64 everything instantly loads and that's a much heavier environment.
Anyone know what's going on? I'm still sorta new to Linux, but I have a good foundation so far. I love the way it works so I want to use it, so please help I currently dual boot to windows 7 x64 home premium.
ALsO another random problem: i set the keyboard shortcut to try to make windows key open the linux mint menu, but as testing it, i accidentally put as shift+s. when i removed the custom keyboard shortcut since it didnt work, i can no longer shift+s to capitalize my 's'. Why? :/

its not so much of swappiness, its more of cinnamon, is cinnamon compiled in java (only guessing)? if so, java is one of the slowest languages?
... what's causing this is also influencing other distro's.
