Hi, I think there is a misunderstanding over here so allow me to clear and explain that.
http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=11613963&postcount=252 I was seeking a professional and official answer to the above post and I hoped more developers will jump in. So Far, PCMan did so THANK YOU :) I'm still waiting for others to share their opinion. I'll summarize the questions: 1- To being with, is it true that the more dependencies any app has the more load will be added to RAM and as a result a slower system? *I THINK: if these dependencies will NOT be loaded, the performance will be the same - obviously. However, I need a final answer so I can use it every time someone will ask the same Question then add that to our FAQ section.*:) 2- If the answer of the above question is "Yes, the more dependencies the slower performance" then is there anyway to tell the user which app is light and which is not? I THINK: a few words on the description for each app is more than enough because after all, it's up to the user + it's up to his/her machine. I was very much able to reply that post but ALL what I wanted is a team work answer/reply, that is all :) my bad, I think I did a mistake :) Using LSC instead of USC was not mentioned after all :) As for using the old list, I'm still CONFUSED because I thought the old list = for development (and stuff like that) talk and the new one for general discussion. Sorry again if I caused any confusion ... things are not very clear over here!
