What could be the reason? :confused:
Is this related to size of swap partition?
Plz help me.
What do you mean when you say
"run too slow"?
Take a long time to start? That's not easily fixed.
MS drags shared libraries of its products into RAM
during OS start, thus they load quickly. In Linux
that doesn't happen.
If your applications respond slowly while working
with them, you may have too many processes chomping
CPU and/or RAM...
