New users could use the 'get ubuntu version', show cpu, and resource
usage. As for the wasting resources part this is a run=once application
it is not something eating away your CPU in the backgorund. Just as we
have others in the same category.
I am sure adding the panel aplets to see resource usage is a *lot* more
resource consuming.Those are external apps, permanently running and
taking up memory.
