List of services you can shutdown for better system performance, Ubuntu 9.10 “Karmic Koala”

Here is a short list of services you can disable for a better/faster system performance.

One of the easiest and fastest “tweaks” is the turning off of unneeded services. But, which ones are safe to turn off? Which ones should be left on?

Not all Linux boxes are going to have the same services as mine (I’m using Ubuntu Linux), but below is a handy list of what can be turned off for desktop users.

To enable or disable the services you need to install the Boot-Up Manager first… watch the video!
