>>14645 how good is popOS? (performance)
anon 10/11/2021 (Mon) 17:12:35 14649 Reply
>>14648 Pop Os is really good if you are okay with gnome. I tried using Pop OS with plasma but didn't work for me. I found Manjaro KDE more easy to use because of Plasma integration. If you are okay with gnome, Pop OS would be a better choice.

>>14648 DE matters more than the distro. It will make no difference if you use Arch or Gentoo but still end up using Gnome. If you are familiar with Linux/have free time then try Arch + dwm, else just go with Xubuntu.

>>14668 arch with xfeces worked fine with my 2010 intel atom netbook with 1gb ram. youll be fine with xubuntu or lubuntu. i have never tried puppy mint manjaro or mx. also xubuntu and lubuntu are have more guides and packages available for a casual user.
anon 10/11/2021 (Mon) 17:56:26 14671 Reply
>>14668 Puppy does some weird things so that it can run off of RAM, it's not meant to be a daily use distro. Mint is almost like Ubuntu so you could use it I guess. Manjaro is rolling release and will get much faster and frequent updates than Ubuntu, if you're into that sort of thing. Dunno about MX, looks like it's incompatible with Ubuntu PPAs. Lesser known distros normally do not have lots of packages in their repos.

>>14668 >>Puppy Outdated >>Mint Nothing Special >>Manjaro would recommend if you are into arch and want better customisability(not so stable) >>MX Linux Nothing Special, used bots to shoot up their ratings on distrowatch. Lubuntu should be a good choice for your PC. But you are gonna get bored of the DE real quick. Kubuntu has very similar resource usage but a lot more customissable and aesthetic. Plus, Kubuntu also has lot more themes and icons when compared to lubuntu.

>>14651 What do you mean by "Potato" PC? If you meant ancient like more than a decade old use Puppy, if you meant only decade old, use some distro that ships XFCE or LXDE/Qt by default.

>>14631 Unironically install Gentoo, after you spend some time configuring your kernel and emerging the apps you need, your computer will become very snappy. Everything is tuned and optimised for your PC. Also use a tiling wm, my i3 setup only uses 300ish mbs of RAM when idle.

>>14802 Gentoo is a source based distro, all the applications are compiled on and for your system. But if youre a beginner and you feel Gentoo is intimidating then go for Arch. But honestly its not and all you should do it RTFM

>>14803 would it be any better (performancewise) than lubuntu?
anon 10/16/2021 (Sat) 06:43:21 14813 Reply
>>14804 Arch is simply not worth it. Performance improvement will be negligible when compared to the complexity of Arch and ease of use of Ubuntu. Plus, setting up Arch is a headache. Very time consuming too.

anon 10/16/2021 (Sat) 06:49:44 14820 Reply
>>14804 few seconds of faster boot times are not worth it. you laptop will explode or melt due to heat while compiling the kernel from the source.

>>14631 Use instantOS. Its arch based. Its fast. Its quick. It just works out of the box. You will have time for life. And if you want you can easily customise it to your liking.

>>14813 Arch has an installer now. You can save time that way. But really jsut use the other distros like Arco or InstantOS that are based on arch.
