Hi,

I have a dual boot of Windows XP and OpenSuse 11.3. It's a pretty old computer (1.5 Ghz processor, 300MB RAM) so I install an XFCE desktop environment on 11.3. It still pretty sluggish though. Just wondering if anyone else is using XFCE..? I am considering buying more RAM for the computer to bring it up to 800MB. As it is, it can't play a DVD - top and sar commands show that machine is absolutely maxed out, although Windows XP can play the same DVD without any issues. I am guessing that it's the shortage of RAM which is causing the issue.
