I thought desktop Linux was bloated but it turns out the 4x hugetlb 1GB pages I set up a while ago for a voxel experiment are preallocated and not swapped out. So my current experiment was swapping hard when using 29GB even though I have.32GB RAM. Disabled the hugetlb stuff for now and it works as expected. There were loads of bloaty things left after stopping lightdm but a sudo killall -u claude fixed that.
