Do you feel Ubuntu 17.10 is slow and heavy? Do you find it's difficult to run Firefox and others without lagging? That's because Ubuntu has so many processes running at once that are unnecessary for most users. Among them are redundant gnome-shell, gsd-somethings, evolution-somethings, and many more. Ubuntu 17.10 uses at least 1GiB of RAM at idle and that is too heavy for a desktop system. This article explains some experiments in reducing RAM usage down to ±600MiB by disabling those unnecessary processes from Ubuntu.
