Linux Lite Footprint


Just a quick comment about the resource utilisation of Linux Lite 1.0.6.

As I write this, I have the following applications running concurrently:

Cherokee Web Server
Postfix Mail Server
MySQL DB Server
MySQL Workbench
Firefox Web Browser (16 tabs open)
Seamonkey Web Browser
Openoffice Writer
Komodo Edit 8

Memory usage....602MB and they don't appear to swapping to disk all the time as I can switch between applications instantly.

In my experience, this is extraordinary. I've no idea how you do it, but I'll point out that Linux Lite is also (for me) very stable. I've only had it crash once in a few months and I think that was my fault anyway. I'm running it on both a desktop and an old laptop with equal success. It even looks nice.

You've definately a good job with this distribution.

    Thanks for your feedback Earthenware. Our approach has been stability and low resource use. It's good to hear back from people who are experiencing exactly that. Cheers.
