Home Learn Linux Linux Answers Audio/Video What is the standard Xserver size for low-end computers?
  • take a look at LXDE and keep Chrome as your browser (or even less), XUbuntu is still pretty fat if you compare it with LXDE or those essentials/lights distributions

  • I do not recommend using Chrome as your browser as it is the one that consumes more memory among the top browsers (different threads per tab...those sort of things)

    As for the DE... fluxbox or WMII are great options :)

    However... you are asking for Xseerver size? what do you mean? memory resources used? That depends on way too many things to get an accurate answer

    What I mean is, the Xservers install on linuxOSs are not the same size, especially when you are dealing with an ancient PC. The older the machine the smaller the Xorg foot print I am assuming. If there is a lower size Xserver, it would be good to know.
