    Question memory usage up in Karmic -- why?

    On 9.04, when the system is booted and I log in, but before any apps are
    started (such as firefox or thunderbird), the various memory monitors (gkrellm, top, system monitor) agreed that I was using 18% of my RAM.
    After upgrading to 9.10, it's up to 24%. I've been able to turn off a few daemons (such as bluetooth) but to no material effect. This is not a critical issue but I'm disappointed at the jump ... any ideas why this has happened, and is there anything I can do to tune it/make it better?

    Thanks,
    Ben

    Look under Startup Programs, there quite a few entries that can be safely disabled.
