A Speed Comparison of Some of the Best and Fastest Lightweight Linux Operating Systems (Ubuntu-based Distributions)*
A comparison of the idle RAM usage / speed of some lightweight Linux distributions. RAM usage provides an indication of how fast a computer operating system is. The lower the minimum RAM usage, the faster a computer often is.
Testing was done by booting from a Live USB on a 1 GB RAM computer. Idle RAM Usage was determined using the 'free -m' terminal command. Quelitu Jazz usage is adjusted for accuracy. Once installed, RAM Usage is somewhat lower.
** Figures assume a default setup. Disabling the Wi-Fi/Network and Battery system tray icons (using Qx Customizer) lowers RAM Usage by another 10 to 15 MB.
