Big distributions, little RAM 2

,----[ Quote ]
| I will point out though that almost all of 
| the distributions have done a good job of 
| lowering memory usage with system updates, 
| which is very commendable. Also itâs 
| important to note that even though RAM and 
| disk space increase with updates so might 
| performance so itâs all about which metric 
| you hold as most important.


Liquorix Squeezes the Most Out of Your Linux Desktop

,----[ Quote ]
| Switching to Linux has many reasons - 
| Security, Stability, Performance, and of 
| course, Cost. Be whatever the reasons, 
| performance becomes the eventual priority 
| for desktop as the viruses, malwares and 
| breakdowns don't come in the linux-users 
| way.
| How to get the most out of a Linux desktop? 
| Well, there are so many tricks, tweaks and 
| hacks such as using a just right, well 
| customized kernel, removing unnecessary 
| services, apps, packages, paralleling boot 
| process, using a lightweight window manager 
| and desktop environment....and a dozen 
| others. A long time user often dabbles to do 
| these things of which the first, and perhaps 
| the most important is hacking the kernel 
| fitting impeccably to his/her hardware and 
| working requirements.



Ultra-minimal Linux Desktops Roundup

| Of the three, fvwm looks most like a
| 'normal' window manager. It's pretty basic,
| though. When you start it up for the first
| tine, there's no desktop decoration at all.
| No menu bar, no docking bay; the only thing
| you can do is to click on the desktop,
| which fires up a basic menu.


Minimalist Linux desktops

| Lightweight desktops have a multitude of uses, on netbooks,
| for mobile devices, for older hardware, for users with limited
| requirements of their systems, for connecting to applications
| in the cloud, and for bare knuckled programmers who prefer to
| work closer to the metal.
