http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I notice that my machine is quite slow since I reinstalled. I was previously running FC6 and things were a lot better. What can I do to get rid of this desktop lag? I am running this on a p4 1.3ghz with 384 MB ram. Not the best and it's from the 90s but it works. I didn't install the office packages or KDE. Just a basic install. I notice that my load averages are consistently higher than they were on my FC6 machine. (HowTos)
