Thanks for your reply.
I find that my CPU will run at 100% for long periods of time &
everything slows to a crawl.
Also Ubuntu sucks down the memory something fierce.
I've run Linspire 6 & the memory & Cpu usage are much lower.
Right now my memory is down to 73 MB out of 2 GB...
I usually start off with 1540 MBs or so & then it rapidly drops.'
After opening Thunderbird Mail with 14 email entities & a Firefox
window or 2 I'm down to 1100 MB before starting to browse or write, etc.
The memory usage is as bad as MS Win XP.
Linspire 6 will start out at 1700 MB and drop more slowly with use.
When I close something out it will jump up a bit.
