Sorry that's not what I meant. What are you running on the XP installation. What requires you to need XP?

oh! well sim tower for one, that one doesn't even start on windows 8.1

the sims 2 has all sorts of graphical glitches and crashes on windows 8.1
The original Deus ex.

a few dos games that I prefer to run without dosbox if possible and run great.

Streets of simcity.

Sim copter.

there's a few others that I haven't gotten around to installing on here yet but that's just the main one's I play so far.

most of them are nearly or over 20 years old lol.

at least one or two are over 25 but that'll be in the realm of the 486 build I'm planning

also the windows XP machine makes a great test bed for seeing if my website is still backwards compatible with older hardware.

KDE is so pretty desu!

I know the icons are gross, don't @ me.
I'm planning on making the distro hop to void though, and switching back to dwm. I hate having a gig of ram being used idly by the DE alone
Either that or NixOS, since I've always wanted to play around with it but never felt comfortable enough to actually do it.

With 12 GB of RAM at your disposal, what's the big deal though? The point of well managed RAM is that when other things aren't using it, it can give more to the active application: in this case the DE, so that it runs faster.

Pretty wallpaper though.

It's not a matter of 'use everything at your disposal,' it's 'use only what you need.'
I don't want something that needs a gig to constantly drain my battery when I'm on the go. I don't need it to waste my precious CPU cycles managing that RAM and doing garbage collection for no reason. And in the case that I do have something that does use large amounts of RAM (say, I run a benchmark test or something) then I want to be able to maximize my use in that situation, instead of it being eaten away, without me having to reconfigure everything or kill background processes myself before I can use my resource-intensive apps.

This right here is why Box is my linux DE of choice Tongue

it's so light it runs on a pentium 1 with 256mb of ram, it's infinitely customizable, and other than maybe a TUI or CLI it's probably the next best thing to X window as far as system weight and speed, only it looks way nicer.

Scroll up to that cool tron theme I did, I did that in Open Box.
