Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Every time I load an app the CPU get to 100% use and everything else slow down. Sometimes (in either fluxbox and xfce) when I left-click for the menu it goes to 100%. I open aterm and I get 85-90%. The cpu load goes a 100% even when I click a link on a web page (using firefox) and stick to it until the web page is loaded.
Where I find this really annoying is when I'm working and I have 3 or 4 OpenOffice document open, firefox. A document in the background auto-save and I can't work on the foreground document or look at another web page or even scroll a page because the cpu is busy at 100%.
Things aren't smooth!
I would like to know if there is something I can do to better distribute the cpu load between apps and reduce process priority for apps in the background.
Maybe it's a simple case of "did you enable [insert kernel option] in your kernel".
It's not about OpenOffice, it's always. I run only firefox and click on a link and the cpu load jumps to 100%. Or I start X window and left-click to open the menu and I get 100%.
Here I only have aterm and firefox open and I will click on 'submit reply' and the cpu load will be 100%.
