This week we increased the memory limit for appliances run in Studio's testdrive from 512 MB to 1 GB. The old value was enough for most appliances, but modern desktop environments like GNOME and KDE work much better with more RAM. This is especially true for ISO images, which are read-only and thus need more memory than other formats.
As a result of the change, you should see
a noticeable speedup across the board, especially if you
are on a good network and your connection speed is not a bottleneck.
Enjoy your faster testdrives!
