I'm sick of it!

[ #12692 ]
OK, I've had it. Ever since I installed RH8, it's slowed down daily. I rebooted 3 times yesterday because Galeon decided to eat all my memory.

    Try Debian or Gentoo if you feel like experimenting (or a stable workstation).
    • Actually, back in 1997 when I got my RH 5.2 CD from Maddog, it was quite nice (even tho I trashed it regulary for not knowing how to use it). I use Debian at work and actually attempted to install it on my laptop. All I can say is that uhm I'm not going there again. I'm comfortable with RH. It's stable enough and I don't want to spend days looking for things that the system needs. Instead I'll spend days looking for things I need on the system. I confess installing RH8 and leaving it the way it was installe
