Early Alpha Speed Test 1

(1/4) > >>

Jerry:
Very, very early testing of 5.0 on real hardware. Boot up is fast, shutdown is almost instant. Windows pop open very quickly, look at Libre Word open!
Fairly old HP lappy with 8gb ram, Core i7, very old first gen Vertex 60gb SSD. Can't wait to test this on modern hardware!


TheDead:
Nice!

You're lucky to have SSD's lying around! ;)

Once you get there... Do you think old Core2/2GB/5400RPM HDD computers could have to stay in 4.x? :-o

Jerry:
Unfortunately, memory usage is not what it was in 4.12 and GTK2. Now with GTK3 and 4.14 we'll be booting to circa 500-600mb. One of the side effects of progress :( KDE looks more and more like a viable option in 6.x

Is your alpha using Ubuntu 20.04 (which is alpha too)? Will you be releasing versions for testing?

I have a Ryzen 5 3500u/Vega 8 (and Ryzen 3 3200u/Vega 3) laptop. They seem sensitive to kernels above 5.3. I read that Ubuntu is using the 5.5 kernel for 20.04. I could do some testing on my machines. But, I'm not very knowledgeable about how to dig into why something isn't working.

I know LL has been targeted toward older hardware. It's ok if hardware *that* new isn't a priority.

I was already a user of Win 10 and later I moved to 7, I always thought both were heavy, and I decided to test other systems (my notebook is not at all powerful) I started using Lubuntu, ugly interface. Then I used Linux Mint, I liked it, but I changed it, because it was kind of buggy. Right after I used Ubuntu, beautiful but heavy. So I researched and found Linux Lite, now I have no complaints, light, simple and very beautiful. Here are some suggestions: -New icons, the ones with the strange black background are ugly. -This win7 wallpaper is very ugly lol (I know it can change). -I think we should have an app store similar to Linux Mint and etc. -We should also show animations in the windows (it seems that they are present in this 5.0 alpha, very happy for that). Simply the best edition of Linux.
