In principle, I have noticed that the new Linux kernels are always faster than the old ones, the system performance improves. Abe is called one of the few new but well-functioning things. Today I updated the core of my modest itch and was almost stunned by the effect. Frame consumption fell by 10-15% which in my case is quite a lot. The machine is equipped with only 3x64MB frame ;). Until now, the machine worked with 2.6.18-6 version that I upgraded to 2.6.26-1. The machine is currently on 84% ram unlike before when it was almost constantly on 98% 😉 Not that I had any problems with the frame even though it was so loaded but its positive positive.
