Ok this is getting out of hand (look at screenshot)

You cannot tell me that a FULL-BLOWN DE is taking up 55 MB OF RAM. (Right now 33.8MB)

This is epic.


am not convinced that I would call E a full blown up DE,
but in any case - that's cool ( if this measurement is correct {?} )

Heheh, in the same situation E16 only uses about 14.9 Mb.
But there's more running to have all the fun we're used to. :magick:

I seem to be "out of sync" with others every time I switch DE for long term use ..... I am on E16 again since I wanted to make/mod it be "modern", whatever that may be. :nod:

Methinks there is nothing wrong on that.
Why not E16 then?
Prolly we are the only ones using it in a serious way, ya? No ?

And now you have tell my PC with 64GB of RAM -
what to do with the rest of the daytime.....


Umm, run Catalina (and Leopard) in Vbox? :hot:

Normally I use Vbox fullscreen but made it smaller to show off...and I've only got 8G RAM. :shocked:

Sheesh, I started off with a whopping 35Mb hard drive on my PC running Win3.1 ..... my first PC with a GUI. :shocked:


Yep, that's sweet.
(Leopard is useless, though)

dont even try to install big sur. its download is 13GB and it needs an additional 35GB during installation ... not great.


I use it daily and love it.

Apart from the frequent crashes.

true, but just goes to show how little a minimal install could be. why, we could realistically have a 100MB system - it'd just be garbage.

There's a GUI system to checkout that's really minimal: Mulinux.
It's really old but sometimes I still run it on very old hardware, just for the fun of it. :madness:
