Linux family comparision

Unread post by Alez » Thu May 25, 2017 2:45 am

Linux family comparision. Originally posted by Dirk Broer but is too good to leave buried in another post.

The Ubuntu family, the most commonly used:
Flavor Image Image Image Image Image Image
Desktop Unity Gnome KDE Mate Xfce LXDE
CPU Req 1 GHz Celeron (better recommended) 1 GHz Celeron (better recommended) 1 GHz x86 (better recommended) Pentium III-750 (Core 2 Duo 1600 MHz or betterrecommended) Pentium III, Athlon XP (better recommended) Pentium II, Athlon (better recommended)
RAM Req 1 GB (2 GB or more recommended) 1.5 GB (more recommended) 512 MB (1 GB or more recommended) 512 MB (2 GB or more recommended) 512 MB or more(minimum install can be done with 128 MB) 128-384 MB (512 MB or more recommended)
OS size 7-16 GB 7-16 GB 4-10 GB 8-16 GB 2-6 GB 384-800 MB
The figures given take into account the install on a 32-bit system. When you have a 64-bit system you have the advantage of a better CPU than these requirements and no limitation in the amount of RAM -the more the better- you can place, other than the limits of your mobo.
Most systems nowadays can take at least 8 GB of RAM and a speed of 1.5 GHz for a CPU, APU or SOC seems the bare minimum now. You may have some older hardware lying around though.

The best form of help from above is a sniper on the rooftop....
