Thank you mikshaw for your answer.
I find it very little, too; I just wonder if we can keep the RAM usage under 10% at x starts (without specific options) in comparison with 2.3, which needed 8% at x starts on my laptop; the same for the processes needed at x start: is it possible to keep them at 20 or not up to 23? As you suggest, even with Ram usage around 10% and used processes between 24-27 at x start wihout specific options, I find the 2.4 RC1 incredible powerful.
One more observation on something strange to me:
a) I have dsl 2.4 installed (frugal, grub bootloader) on HD, up and running;
b) I have dsl 2.3 burned on a CD; I put the CD in my machine, and I reboot in order to boot from CD (my first boot option in my bios);
c) my machine doesn't boot directly on the CD (= dsl boot prompt), but gives me the Grub prompt with my resolutions for 2.4;
d) I make 'enter' in order to get the appropiate resolution for my hardware, dsl runs as usual, and it uses the iso image (dsl 2.3) on the CD, instead of refering to hda1 (i.e. dsl 2.4); so it gives me what I wanted, but...
e)... it was impossible for me to have the dsl boot prompt of dsl 2.3 when booting from the CD...; has anyone else observed the same?
