I concur. I liked the "old" way much better... Also, I have to say I've got 
a pretty peppy system (Athlon 64, 2200 Mhz, 1 Gb shared ram) but it's dog 
slow sometimes.... I'm wondering what the heck is going on, as I'm not 
swapping to disk a whole lot, and I've still got available RAM:
[john SLAVE1 ~]$ free
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:        884524     716996     167528          0      19232     191736
-/+ buffers/cache:     506028     378496
Swap:      6201048     290032    5911016

So, why is my system so dog-slow? Is it the fact that I've got an 
integrated video card instead of a high-end gaming video card or something?
