Yeah I prefer Ubuntu because of ease of use. But I don't find it
reliable when I click on firefox and then wait 5 minutes for the web
page to load. Any suggestions on speeding up Ubuntu?
Use one of these images - http://www.elinux.org/BeagleBoardUbuntu#Demo_Image
- as they're optimised. Judicious usage of swap memory. XFCE or even
better Fluxbox as your window manager. I use Firefox's bookmarks
toolbar heavily , and strip out text so the toolbar's mostly icons,I
then don't have to go into the menus so often.
I see. I currently installed the canonical image of 11.04 from the
same website instead of the demo image. I'll try the demo and see if
it optimizes my settings. Appreciate the advice.
