Linux in Government: Optimizing Desktop Performance, Part II
Due to space limitations, we have to break this discussion of optimizations into different parts. Hopefully, this article enables you to make improvements in your desktop's performance. Each change we make in future articles will have a cumulative effect, and soon you will see your entire Linux operating system in a new way--as a fast desktop.
In the meantime, perhaps people want to jump in with comments about prelinking and other performance enhancements. Feel free to do so. We only request that you make your comments constructive and explain how to implement your suggestions.
