Lubuntu 12.10 uses 30% more RAM than 12.04
Lubuntu 12.10 uses a lot more RAM than 12.04.
The 12.10 ISO in VirtualBox uses 127 MB, which is less than 131 MB for 12.04. However, once installed 12.10 run at 110 MB compared to about 85 MB for 12.04 (in both fresh installs and upgrades). That is 25 MB more unaccounted for. The processes in Lxtask seem to be normal. Please explain...
I am wondering if you forgot to turn off some services or if something should not be running. There is also a few significant bugs (already reported): mounting partitions now require a password in PCManFM (very unpleasant for anyone using a data partition) and PCManFM's Right-Click>Paste not working.
Congratuations for the great new icon theme!
