If you're running low-end recycled hardware, like I do, minimising services
helps give you a bit more operational headroom. I don't know about the
theory, this is from practical experience - it only really makes a noticeable
difference when I'm running Rosegarden or JAMin. Otherwise I use this machine
for everything, with a permanent network connection. Most of the system
tuning that has been suggested is done during A/DeMuDi installation anyway.
