I did a test at this time still running when I writing email with
I open Firefox and star on youtube watching 16 different movies, than
star listening on VLC Gregory Isaac and on Mplayer run W. Wenders
Paris-Texas. On GIMP I edit one photo and open was Blender, Stellarium,
play between working on GIMP game Rocks'n Diamonds and copy /home and
/var on external firewire HD. Swap was not touched, 0% and memory was
used 1.9 GB. I monitored with System Monitor on GNOME 3.
