Hi Juanito!

Have fun,

Hi again!

I've been testing for a few hours now and this cut (5.4) seems just good. It even has a smaller memory footprint (in 5.3 I got as low as 5.5 % idle but with 5.4 i get 5.2 % of 1 GB on my old netbook). Well done tiny core team!!!

Have fun getting the development of Tiny Core further,

Hi again!

My brain is accelerated today it seems. Been fooling around with Gentoo Linux on the Raspberry Pi and now getting my installation of the latest Tiny Core as I want it. I think I was a little optimistic when it comes to memory footprint. Loaded msttcorefonts and got up to 5.3 % so it's probably the fact that I have less extentions loading at boot that gives a smaller footprint. But anyway it shows that this cut is an advancement since it at least doesn't demand more memory than the previous cut.
So thanks for all the hard work!

Have fun,
meo

Hey, Juanito, any ETA on when CorePure64 5.4 will be uploaded? It's still 5.3 in that release directory.

And, yeah, Tinycore 5.4 is looking GREAT! Can't wait to try the 64-bit build, I'm grabbing 5.3 anyway, since I want to give the 64-bit builds a try.
