Gone native (New Raspian image, debian wheezy on steroids)
A new image is available from the raspian guys. It's a Debian wheezy release targeted for the RPi hardware. I think old wheezy beta was built for arm 4 achitecture. This raspian distro is build for arm 6 architecture and is target for the RPi chip. It is a lot faster. With previous releases the CPU usage would peak frequently and the Pi would run slow. This occurs less often now during usual use of the X desktop. I recommend an upgrade.
