I moved this to General Discussion because I did not see a need or request for support.

I chuckled a bit when I saw the "Get a fast distro" line toward the bottom. :)

Inernational organisations, some time ago, started as that...

Funny parallel, althought: Peppermint and Opera, Ice and widget. Interesting...

added this to post in link.
Using preload
Preload caches the most accessed applications on your disk and memory.
Preload should not be installed on systems having memory less than 1GB, otherwise, it would not have any effect, or rather would advesly affect the performance.
To install preload: use terminal: sudo apt-get install preload
Once installed, preload will automatically start during boot. It normally takes 20-30 launches of a program to start being cached by preload.

I installed preload about a month back, my system is so responsive these days it blows me out, pretty sure that preload is assisting with it's app caching... def no side issues... also side-ling a bit... setting all my settings in `Nvidia x server Settings' to highest and switching on vsync to blank, then switching of anti-aliasing (default to app) > thats when my pc started fully using my video ram and hence everything speeded up.
