Notes of the kettle-winemakers from the old laptop (part 5th, final)
Laptop ASUS (Intel Core i5-3210m CPU @ 2.50GHz 2.50 GHz, NVIDIA GeForce 410m, RAM 4 GB)
On this laptop it was felt that the desktop Wednesday "Cinnamon" slows down in Linux Mint, and in LMDE. Of course, it is not to compare with the Tenth Winda, when an old laptop periodically fell into anyone. Then in one of the reviews, I read that, they say, the easiest and optimized desktop environment for Linux Mint is "xfce"! Put all "xfce"! : D installed ... But in the end, "XFCE" was much harder than "CINNAMON". Do not believe the reviews on the Internet! :) Then reinstalled Linux Mint again, but already with "Mate" and immediately became unusually quiet. If you open a browser and just read or play any Sudoku Solitaire, and in the background on the player will play Internet radio
, and next to put a pile
... then the cooler will not even dry out: D what was not noticeable on other shells. I thought already stay on "Mate" ...
But according to the forum, the second day I test Manjaro Linux with a desktop "KDE". From the first launch, the system occupied 480MB RAM, after settings and pairs of open browser tabs - about 800MB. The most struck that even using complex effects (gorgeous animation, transparency of windows, panels, installed widgets on the desktop, etc.) The system does not even strain. On the Tenth Windows, elementary conductor sometimes started half a minute, which can be said about another. And, of course, the cooler was starting like turbine IL-76: LOL:
If the desktop environment "Mate" on the Linux Mint looks a bit non-zero, homely "lamps", sometimes crooked applications, etc., then "KDE PLASMA" on Manjaro looks almost flawless. Well, and, of course, plus the old laptop does not slow down. And in Manjaro, the same Firefox browser is not stuffed in MANJARO. In Linux Mint, I had to clean the Firefox.js files, distribution.ini and so on with my hands. Of course, the first time it may seem that the number of settings on the "KDE Plasma" is simply excessive. This is especially unusual after Windows, where almost everything is tightly nailed by dowels. But everything is your time.
In short, my resume (IMHO): All the development of GNU / Linux steepness, beautiful and worthy of respect, if only because it is Open Source. Such work is always worthy of respect. For example, you can and need to scold Windows, Invidia and other sellers. For these two weeks, what only holivarov did not read inside the Linux community. I thought that the war goes with users of Windows, but it turned out that the real bloody battles go inside GNU / Linux: LOL: So, summaries: everyone must independently choose its distribution. Because everyone has its own iron, experience, employment, conditions, goals, etc. Before everything is put and removed for a couple of clicks. Especially when the hand is already playing. Thank you so much for help and support! :)Post has been editeddreamkz - 16.01.21, 15:55
