Wow! Right now I have 9 applications open, including Firefox with 9 tabs, and I have 261,564 free. The swap isn't even half full.

Mint9 KDE out of the box. From what I can remember, it's about the same memory usage.
I *think* I'm using the Gaia recycled desktop theme, slightly customized in that it's a white panel. It's been so long since I tweaked anything, I can't remember how you tell what theme you're using. Anyway, I know it isn't anything heavy on resources.
Hmm ... Does Gaia recycled come as part of the default install? Because if it doesn't, how come I have it? And could that somehow be the problem?
