Re: [K12OSN] Sky high load average with FF and CentOS?

if you are using KDE you can try KIOSK ADMIN TOOL
for assigning "desktop settings" profiles for groups and users.

i tested firefox 3 and it is almos 3 times faster then v2 and takes less memory
try the http://blogs.zdnet.com/hardware/?p=2090 (sunspider test) to see.
also, a little old but nice to know:

and btw !
fedora core 6 + ltsp 4.2 is faster then all the other distributions (centos , fc9 + ltsp5 , ubuntu )
do not know why. i did not dive into it. it just is. maybe one day i will have the time to figure it out.

I'll try installing it, but I've learned that teachers can be very
resistant to new things right at the start of the school year.  I have
few that volunteer to test, so ... I can install Opera and then push
some desktop launchers to them.

Aside: I don't know if anyone does this, but I am using the
skel.groups approach to making sure certain icons appear. I just have
scripts in profile.d that run specifically for each group.  If a
person is in the group, they get the script which checks their desktop
and adds/removes icons.  So, for my volunteer group, I just have to
put a launcher in their 'group' directory.

With 2 votes, I'll try evince instead.
