What is you comment?


I will have to try this at home. My home system is crawling and it could be related to some of these settings. I would like to see other fine tuning settings.

I cannot afford a new machine at this time.

While I can, I'm waiting until the first price drop on the 4Q09 32nm Intel chips to do another build, so I'm not about to replace either. ;-)
Maybe by then SSD will be at a better price point.

However, with memory floating about $11/GB most desktop and laptop systems can afford enough memory. Because most of these tuning issues address problems caused by not enough memory. Linux has gotten vastly larger in the last few years, and if you can match the memory to the requirement you will really improve performance.
