Here's what I see before running any apps: mark@c2stable ~ $ free total used free shared buffers cached Mem: 12303060 462120 11840940 0 12412 178712 -/+ buffers/cache: 270996 12032064 Swap: 12602976 0 12602976 mark@c2stable ~ $ It doesn't drop much running Firefox to send this email: mark@c2stable ~ $ free total used free shared buffers cached Mem: 12303060 655776 11647284 0 13824 230160 -/+ buffers/cache: 411792 11891268 Swap: 12602976 0 12602976 mark@c2stable ~ $ Cheers, Mark
