I own a old netbook: 32bit, intel atom processor, 1gb of ram. To modern standards this thing is really slow.
Past weekend I installed Puppy Linux. I need to say it's awsome how many things still work well on this old hardware. Before I had Ubuntu Mate run on this mashine and it took ~800mb of ram without running any app. This means starting a big tool like firefox overfloaded the ram and slowed down the whole mashine. Now Puppy only takes only 134 mb so even firefox runs okay on most pages.
The current release came out this year and their forums seem to be very active as well. So, I guess the project is healthy. 😁
Anyway I think I'm going to try out Haiku OS on the same mashine as well. I'm curious about this free non-Linux OS for quite a long time and the hardware specs seem to be good enough to run it.
@themightyglider Oh cool, on both counts!
I've messed with Haiku a bit in a VM, but not since the last big release. I like it a bunch, would love to dedicate a computer to it one day.
Hi! Game Making Social is a part of the Fediverse dedicated to being a well-moderated, cosy, friendly place to talk and share stuff about amateur videogame making, and everything surrounding that.
It's kinda an offshoot of Game Making Tools, which is a wiki(+) for a similar audience.
Game makers, game writers, game curators, etc. etc. most welcome!
I also try to maintain a list of not-jerk game-making communities on the wiki, which you might find interesting.
Please read the rules before signing-up :)
