My laptop is 4.5 years old. I can use some desktop effects, but realisticallyMaybe not, if you set KDE4 to lose all the eye candy. I have booted someYea but I would leave all the eye candy turned on most likely. I sort
Live Linux CDs with KDE4 on my 4+ year old Celeron laptop (stuck with
the old Intel 8xx series video hardware) and the video hardware handles
it fine if the eye candy is either turned off or very conservatively set.
LXDE runs very well on the old hardware. So does Fluxbox.
of like the eye candy stuff, as long as it works.
I have to limit myself to a few, not switch on everything in sight :-) As
long as I do that it's perfectly usable for all normal work.
I'm on a desktop which does give me a lot more options. I can upgrade
my video card and stuff to "improve" the speed. I think my CPU and ram
will be fine but a faster video card would help, although what I have is
not really bad tho.
How very Microsoftish KDE has become that we've adopted the standard MS
performance solution: "Things too slow - just upgrade your hardware!" ;-)
My current rig is a AMD 2500+ with 2Gbs of ram sitting on a Abit NF7
v2.0 mobo. I have a Nvidia FX-5200 with 128Mb of ram for a video card.
I have two older IDE drives and one SATA drive that is for data, movies
and such as that.
You have more power sitting in that one machine than I have COMBINED on
three of my machines.
It's about 5 or 6 years old but it still works. I hope to keep it
working for a lot longer tho. May move it to the closet when I get me a
new rig built.
A friend of mine has asked me when I'm getting a quad core machine with
8GB of RAM. I won't have the money for that until that kind of hardware
has become low-end hardware. I like doing very large panoramic photos
for fun, and would really rather have my computer spending its memory on
processing my photo, not throwing around eye candy.
authenticity, honesty, community
