No more eye-candy for me…

If you are one of those people who is a bit annoyed about how slow your PC / Laptop is getting, you might want to try one thing – disable all those eye-candy applications you got running in the background.
I did, and the end result – my laptop now actually feels snappy and I save a few MB of RAM (about 17 MB).
However, the obvious downside is that I’ll miss all those pretty shadows underneath my windows and transparent menus…  But I think those things are worth sacrificing for a bit (alright, a lot) of performance gain (be it psychological or otherwise…).
Arh well…
