Difference in RAM usage?
« on: August 04, 2021, 02:13:04 AM »
I'm currently testing which lightweight Linux distributions can be used to give old low spec computers a second life. I have concluded that one of the most crucial bottlenecks is RAM usage. Lack of storage is usually less of an issue.

On newbielink:http://tinycorelinux.net/downloads.html [nonactive] only the size of the .iso files is stated. Is there any difference in RAM usage between the 3 different cores?

Core uses the least ram as it doesn’t include a gui.

It probably depends on which options are chosen in CorePure, but most likely TinyCore will use less.

Sorry, I should have said CorePlus.
