I've always dismissed it as simply that, but I recall just commenting
out all my daemons for one boot in Arch, and it didn't really help much.

The MAIN problem seems to be that I'm using gnome =). As I said, never
bothered much to check it out. The latest Ubuntu does leave a good
impression on the start though (boot time and initial viewing, the
themes are good).

That said - I remember the mountains of ppas and self-compiled software
I used to have. No thanks =)
