C-Money: what use will that be?
the (absolute) minimal requirements of Windows 7 take half of his RAM already.
if you would go and test, you will see that Windows 7 uses more, even if you haven't got any additional applications open.
running an IDE (and most likely a server besides that) and your own applications, do take up resources. if you are low on them, it's just normal it 'll be slower.
do take in mind: this is assuming he's not running any vital software which he may not be able/allowed to shut down, a virus scan, for instance, or a firewall.
adding RAM to the mix is a good choice here. optimization can help but it'll need help.
over here, I work on a Windows 7 machine, with 8 GB ram, and I'm often annoyed by long loading times. (naturally, needing to have several 'heavy' applications open at the same time doesn't really help much there)
yes, and Eclipse isn't known for being friendly to your memory OR your CPU.
If he's running a machine with 32bit Win7 and only 2GB RAM, his CPU will also be very, very marginal (and that's putting it mildly).
Most likely it's a Core2Duo, and an older moderl. Such machines are designed to run XP or at best Vista, not Win7. It's specs that were decent but not stellar 10 years ago.
Just to add to the discussion, I believe it is possible to speed up your pc using a USB and ReadyBoost. I have very little knowledge about this however so it may not be possible. Have a go though, right click on your USB in 'My Computer' and select Properties. Go to the ReadyBoost tab and follow the instructions and see if this helps at all.
If not then you will need to try something else I'm afraid.
Write a C program that should create a 10 element array of random integers (0 to 9). The program should total all of the numbers in the odd positions of the array and compare them with the total of the numbers in the even positions of the array and indicate ...
I have a 2d matrix with dimension (3, n) called A, I want to calculate the normalization and cross product of two arrays (b,z) (see the code please) for each column (for the first column, then the second one and so on).
