I'm a long time xubuntu user (while not very technical I love linux). I switched recently to elementary OS because it looks so beautiful out of the box.

However: the applications are very high on resources compared to xubuntu. I have a 4 cpu i5 laptop with 10 GB memory. For example: when I play battle for wesnoth while connecting with my icaclient to my virtual desktop from work, I hear the fans raging and htop shows a lot of cpu-activity. Anything I can do to make elementary OS a little leaner?

I already installed tlp.....

Best regards,
