I'm using my home computer for browsing, development, gaming,
and multimedia (watching and editing videos, transcoding them
and so on), typesetting, image editing and other average stuff.
The system has an Intel Core 2 CPU 4300 with 1.8GHz clock,
and 2 GB RAM are installed, plus 2 GB swap partition. The RAM
is usually used less than half capacity. To start using the
swap space, I needed to open more than 70 tabs with "Flash" in
the Opera web browser. This was the result (htop summary):

	1  [||||                      7.9%]
	2  [|                         2.6%]
	Swp[|||||               275/2047MB]

I'm obviously doing something wrong. ;-)
