### Upgraded to Fedora 27 - is dog slow + issues - what to do?

I have just completed upgrading from F23 to F27 (via F25) and it is dog slow everywhere. F23 was fine. I already have swap on SSD and it is not being touched anyway according to CONKY. On F23 swap used to be used regularly. I don't know if F27 is an SSD build but, there must be something that can be done? It seems to be HDD waits. As I am typing this form letters are being skipped, some letters are repeated and I have to go back and edit everything I type carefully. Sometimes whole bunches of letters are missed then the rest pop in out of nowhere.

Nautilus took LITERALLY HOURS to open. I had given up then later boom four nautilus windows open all at once.

The keyboard shortcuts on nyx are not working. I press right-arrow and instead of switching pane, it says this will clear the log press c again to confirm.

That, and I have been robbed of my task tray by Gnome. Fortunately F27 has topicons-plus in the updates repo.

What to do? How tttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttto make F27 usable? <-- I didn't edit that one, that is how bad it is.

Every time the cursor locks in position the HDD light is flashing madly. When I let it st everything seems to settle but as soon as I do something, bam!

Commands like DNF or whatever take forever to execute. Much longer than before with the HDD light going crazy the whole time.

EDIT 2: Everything is a bit more responsive with Firefox closed, but I would not say that the issue is reslved. Sorted nyx - uninstalled the up-to-date pip version I carried forward from F23 and istalled from the Fedora repo, it wasn't available there on F23. Nautils now opens without waiting hours, must have been very shy the first time. SWAP is being used if I get enough things running according to CONKY.
