How "unresponsive" your computer is?
Do you have to, for example, wait for reponse on
Code:
echo "blah blah";
?

Tell us about your system- is it a desktop? laptop? netbook? What CPU? How much RAM? What video and audio chipsets? Lastly, what exactly is slow about it?

You'll need to answer the posters questions if you want answers. We don't know if you have an old slow machine, a small amount of RAM and the machine is swapping all of the time, a big desktop environment like KDE, an application that is hogging resources etc.

Slow could mean anything. Slow launching apps? Slow downloading web pages? Slow writing to a drive? Slow booting?

Give some information and you'll get some answers.
