Fedora Budgie is probably the best spin (In my opinion)

I installed Fedora Budgie on an old laptop with 2gb of ram and 32gb of space. The thing is, even with firefox tabs opened, it flies! Best of all, it only takes 25gb of storage space and 590-660 MB of ram at boot.
If you have an old pc or dislike gnome or just prefer the look of a windows like desktop, try the budgie spin. You won’t be dissapointed. :grinning: :smiley: :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


I meant 3gb. sorry :rofl:

You should try the i3 Spin :wink:

MIght have to try this at some point. Having the Windows like layout is why I went with KDE. :slightly_smiling_face:

I’m interested in trying Budgie - I love Gnome, but I keep finding on older laptops, I just want the zip I get on some other OSes. On my list to try next month!!

To my knowledge most desktops are pretty similar in RAM usage. LXQt is basically a debloated KDE but I can imagine a minimal KDE (also without baloo and some more) will be very light on resources too

I will have to do a fedora netinstall with a minimal KDE

  • no akonadi
  • no baloo
  • pcmanfmqt, kwrite, …
  • no animations, blur, transparency etc.
  • kwrite instead of kate
  • no Fedora KDE bloat lol

i do not want my linux to resemble windows hence i stick with gnome.

Thats just the traditional desktop layout, some have diverged and a lot have not.

In my experience it still is the most efficient (if you rely on clicking buttons and dont use workspaces)

But this discussion is not relevant ;D
