Fedora Day Four: Performance
So I’m now a few days into my time with Fedora, and things are going well so far. The machine is all up and running, and I’m back at my keyboard working away. We now know how to make Fedora look good, but how well does it perform in practice? Let’s take a look…
As many people reading this will already know, neither Fedora, or Gnome-Shell are ‘light’ systems. 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.
