    Re: ToriOS

    After "kicking" my kid off the PC i took some time for myself and decided to clean up virtualbox installs and finally try ToriOS. the downloaded version i had at hand was 1.0.

    My PC is a single core Athlon64 3200+ which is running at 2Ghz (i think 2.4Ghz but whatever). it has 4 GB DDR2 RAM and is running windows XP Home SP3. an Antivirus and firewall take a bit of CPU. The virtual appliance i created was assigned 1 GB ram, 64Mb graphics and 8 GB virtual hard disk. since the computer is not much to show Toris OS should fit right into it.

    Install (via OBI) was mostly smooth. The one thing that kind of stuck was the keyboard and locale selection. this part too quite a while and at final screen it showed just terminal. so i didn't know if we stopped or not. closing the terminal screen made it proceed normally. for locale i deliberatelly selected only my country code and English. updates were made during install. and it was all finished quite fast (if i don't count the time i was waiting at the empty terminal screen after those locale selections).
    The install is preety basic. I was bothered a bit that the time had American form despite choosing the lcoale. This could be a limit of jwm (to have one option as default?). I quickly solved it as it is easy to switch to desired time format and form. not sure why, but the OS also didn't change to my locale. Or does it need "translations" to be able to do that?

    Next was restricted extras package. this is the part where i got a bit annoyed. before i chose my language and EN and now this package pulled in all locales and languages. are these all actually needed? just to see some movies? is it because of the fonts?

    i then added the browser (chromium) to test out youtube. it works! though slow, but this is because of my PC.

    i then checked the windows magager settings. they seems bit rough arround the edges. it could be because of VB or something else but it was interesting how every change looked as if the desktop reset it self. nothing strange came out of it. i was missing the keyboard switch button. going through the default apps there should be a nice GUI text editor there. VIM is a bit unusual for people that are used to notepad and such. office is installed from OBI, but to try out the keyboard settings etc. i installed the lighter & smaller abiword.


    oh and the default web browser (links) didn't seem to work. i need to investigate this.


    All in all i think ToriOS is a really good solution for an old PC or a new PC where you want a simple and light interface. Since this was a virtual PC i am not sure how well it does on the battery. but other system resources use is good. To me it falls into beginner/advanced user. The setup needs a bit of knowledge (i was expecting more of a fire and forget experience), so if somoene could install and set it up, then i think beginner would have no issue using it. Also default theme is simple, clear and very easy on the eyes. I think it works really well.


    I am thinking of replacing the old chrunchbang on the 1.2 ghz, 256MB, 32MB GPU, 20 GB HDD laptop (if it still boots). but this will come much later, once i can figure out what i can use it for. before it was used to watch youtube videos and for a few kids games, but now i am not sure what it could be used for. maybe a Doom2/Quake server?! i wonder if UT2004 server would run on it...

    Re: ToriOS

    Links2 works, but there is a learning curve. You will probably install a more user friendly and powerful web browser

    1. Click on the white strip near the top of the window, and there will be dropdown menus

    2. Select File - Go to URL, for example

    Code:
    ubuntuforums.org
    and press the Enter key. You may need the http:// prefix with some web sites, for example

    Code:
    http://torios.top

    Re: ToriOS

    I think the issue with browser was as it doesn't redirect for some reason from the .net to .top address...

    Now a few pics of the issues i menitoned. For some reason i wasn't able to install guest additions. would not be a big issue on bare metal install i guess...

    Review Time

    Hi,

    To all those who have used or tried ToriOS 1.0, kindly help the project by writing a review here:
    http://distrowatch.com/dwres.php?res...&distro=torios

    I think this is a new feature introduced by DistroWatch.com website. I don't remember I've seen it before.

    Your review will help us to gain more attention as ToriOS Project is in need to that.

    Also, we'd like to invite you to join our mailing list and/or our Slack team.
