Hello people, sorry for taking so long to respond. Stuff to do, work, wouldn’t let me log in etc…
Yes, i have 1 GB ram, but i’ve tried both LXDE and XFCE on suse, but both ended up being laggy and sluggish. It’s
not because the desktop enviroment is demanding, the system itself is a bit demanding and probably not meant for
older computers… Or i’m doing something wrong here, but out of the box it didn’t work well and was kind of unpleasant to use.
I even installed nvidia drivers and needed software that usually improves performance. Same result.
I can’t get gnome on this computer because it would blow my cousin’s mind (too different from windows that she got used to).
But i doubt ti would matter. No matter what enviroment i got, the result was the same. I think the system is just a bit too heavy for
that comfiguration… Don’t know… The processor and the disk are kinda slow, maybe that’s it.
About debian being confusing… Well it just kinda is. I’ve never been able to configure a debian based linux the way i want
for it to work properly. Allways some problems, something doesn’t work for me, but it works for literally everyone else, then i try to find
a solution, i find it but it doesn’t work, the desktop is behaving weird, solution again, i need to install something from source, problems,
this that… The list goes on and it gets annoying after a while. I’m just having the worst luck with debian based distros. It’s bizzare really.
I’m not a pro but i find RPM distros like SUSE much easyer to figure out. If something doesn’t work i can either fix it in minutes, or find a
solution online that’s easy to do and allways works. I think i did something to debian in my past life and now it hates me.
I’m not saying one is better or worse than the other, just that I’m better with one and worse with the other.
Also, it would be great to have it for convenience. I use SUSE, so whenever i need to do something i don’t need to go in a slightly different mindset to do
something… I can just do whatever i do on my computer…
I’m not sure about Razor-qt yet, i’ll have to try it on a virtual machine, matching the other computer’s specifications,
or maybe even lower specs to see how it performs. I’ll try it though, i didn’t know it existed till now. Thank you for the find.
Also, thank you for the recommendations for Peppermint, Bodhi and the repository. I’ll give those a try! Downloading them now!
