Gnome Panel sucks up my resources - why ?

Gnome Panel sucks up my resources - why ?

Post by Per-Karsten Nordha » Wed, 30 Sep 1998 04:00:00

Hi all !

I have a RedHat 5.1 system running on a p90 w/80 megs of RAM.

I've installed Gnome 0.27, and when I add "panel &" to my .xinitrc to
make it start up whenever I start x, it seems to suck up almost all of
my system resources - this is what the CPU/Mem usage applet shows me.
Any other smart ways of avoiding this ? Reasons ?


1. Why Linux sucks and will always suck.

Linux is an operating system that about 1 percent of the population is
actually using on their desktop.
Linux nutters like to claim that Linux is superior because the source
code to tha applications is availible to all users.
This is a complete fallacy and in fact is akin to knowing the diameter
of each piston in the engine of your car. Do you really care?
In addition, this source code has been comprimpised many times and in
fact is infected with many trojans and virii simply because of the
fact it is open source.

Linux sucks because it has no standards.
Redhat rpm's don't work with SuSE nor do they work with Mandrake or

Linux is so fragmented it doesn't know where first base is let alone
who is standing on first base.

Linux applications suck. They really do.
Spend some time inside kde or gnome and see for yourself.

In truth, Linux just plain sucks and there is nothing worse.
