"Things kinda slow? Buy more ram!" is really not the kind of advice anyone is looking for. And the CPU section (undervolting, etc.) isn't related to speed improvements, except fan control. This section is sorely lacking a link/howto to/for BFS.

- To my knowledge keeping the CPU cool does not improve performance so I removed this part. I also removed the introduction about RAM. So, problems solved ?

- I'm not an expert, but doesn't overheating decrease performance? If it is, then preventing overheating should count as maximizing performance. If not, then the section is indeed irrelevant. I found this article saying it does for pentium 4 processors: http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu/display/p4-temp.html . But as I said I'm no expert, so what do you think?
- I'm not an expert either, maybe we should undo my change but edit in order not to present this as an absolute truth.

- I think that fan control should be left in since it's generally considered to be related with overclocking. And another thing: let's keep the article's title in tandem with the heading's cases... "Maximizing Performance" or "Maximizing performance"? the second one matches the headings...

- I was wondering if we should create a script that get's the top CPU value of top and let the user choose to pause it or continue running so the system doesn't literally freeze up and become unusuable until a reboot is required, this happend to me so I was wondering if anyone else feels that this is necessary.

Section "The desktop switcheroo" does not make sense. manolo 16:35, 7 November 2009 (EST)
The section on btrfs talks about the libcrc32c module, but confusingly lists modules unrelated to btrfs. I think the zlib module is necessary, but have not yet figured out which others are or are not.
