Fedora Day Four: Performance

Linux

But I don’t really understand why so many people within the Linux community love these light systems so much. I mean, a semi-modern machine now will have a dual-core CPU and at least 4GB of RAM. Not to mention the fact that SSD’s are becoming commonplace on machines now.

On my machine I currently have Chrome with six tabs open, thunderbird, and a couple of background apps like Copy.
