Perhapse, but nautilus is a dog even when not viewing web pages. I have
a PII300 with 96meg of ram, and nautilus takes (just took, I timed it)
47 seconds to open. 40 secondss before it even displyed a window. If I
dint not know better I would have thought I had miss-cliked teh icon!
Evolution (which I use for all my mail) is that same. In all the hype
about having a componet based architecture did any one stop and think
about how slow it was going to be for most users until about 2005?
Also, memusage, before I installed Evolution and mozilla I never used to
consume swap mem, but with evo open, and two mozilla windows and about 2
3rds (of 256meg swap) is used as well. MAkes everything run like more
of a dog!
Is GNOME targeted at normal users, or is it moving towards the elite,
only those with 512 meg of ram on a dual 1ghz machine?
