hey to i made the switch because i only have 1gb of ram on my laptop (duel 1.6ghz as well). between the ram and and the cache i had to ram left and my system was slow, so i switched to a less intensive OS.
im a little bit disappointed because i feel that there is less support in this OS. i cant seem to find a live ram usage applet for my top panle. i got the cpu one, but it wont let me adjust the settings to view ram (the option to click is just gray).
im thinking about switching to mint because i think that this is a little to light for me. what are your thoughts on this? do you think mint will max out my ram like ubuntu?
does anyone know where i can get a live ram monitor applet?
