• Help request, why is my Linux so damn slow?

    I’ve discovered Linux in 1995 and I have been using it as my only home/work operating system since then. I still love it and want to continue to use and promote it, but in the last 2⁄3 weeks it’s become almost impossible. In this page I explain why, hoping to get and collect useful suggestions. First, hardware and software details. These days, I’m using Fedora 14 x86_64 on a computer with an ASUS M3N78-EM motherboard and 8 GB of RAM.
