    Considering that my workstation has 8GB, I think it's doing acceptably.
    Only output from command free is relevant.

    Code:

    Mem:       8133108    3799604    4333504          0            145124    2006644
    -/+ buffers/cache:    1647836    6485272

    Your software is using 1647836 / 1024 = 1609 MB
    Output from free is more exact after command
    echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches

    ... or you could just use your brain and read the +/- buffers cache line.

    Default KDE is not reasonable for netbooks

    I have two dual core desktops, and one Netbook. I find that the desktops with 4 gigs of memory on each, there is no problem to use KDE. KDE uses quite a bit of resources, so much so that on my netbook with 1 gig of memory When I play freecell, The cards jitter across the screen, indicating a resource shortage. The Netbook has a dual core atom processor.

    On the desktop, I use KDE for a while, but eventually I get tired and revert to G6 and I revert back. It is not supposed to be that way, but it is. If KDE had lower overhead, it would be outstanding.

    G6 on the Netbook works fine, with good response time.
