    Re: 32 bits

    i got lubuntu, on the old 32 bit windows i got in 2000. and while, when i upgrade, to a more advanced system. i still want to keep lubuntu. i have to learn a lot, to, still use this os. when learning how to use a free system, even being free to learn how.. why even try to learn, when its as windows. and uncomfortable zone, spy's. i'm only 63, yet, i still need to learn.
    innovation, comes from desperation, and new ideals. why, keep older things going?, because it leads to progress, an innovation. getting old tech, to work well, makes new tech work better. if linux was only for new tech, i would be the less for it.

    We're at the best point of computer technology at the moment - At least up to the point where we work out how to get it to do all our jobs and we're all just computer mechanics working out how to make a computer to do that job too - Oh skynet, were you such a crazy idea....

    Re: 32 bits

    I just installed 32-bits Peppermint 9 Respin on a 2003 Pentium 4 HT with 2 x 40 GB of IDE disks. It uses btrfs with "RAID-0" and LZO compression. It boots in 45 seconds.

    I hate those modern times, there is no time anymore to fetch a cup of coffee during booting, even not with a 32-bits PC.

    This beautiful piece of antiques from 15½ years ago has been made very useful again with super modern Linux Software. What hardware do we have here:
    - A case with Windows 98-SE sticker from Compaq
    - A motherboard with a last update of October 2003

    - A Pentium 4 HT on 3.0 GHz (32 bits) a CPU with dual memory access. Very modern for 2003.
    - 2 x 1 GB DDR memory at 400 MHz
    - Classic PCI sound card
    - 2 x 40 GB IDE disks, each with ~60 MB/s throughput
    - 1 x DVD ROM
    - 17" Philips Monitor (CRT) at 1280 x 1024
    - 600 Watt power-supply, as a bonus for the purchase of a new cabinet for my future AMD Ryzen PC. The power-supply had 2 old Molex connectors for the old IDE disks.


    Firefox loads in ~1 second from the cache with only one exception; the 1st time after booting (5 seconds). Who needs YouTube HD videos, if you can run it at 480p? The cache size using Firefox is >1 GB.

    I think we should keep 32-bits. Who needs >4 GB, it runs perfectly in 2 GB

    meh, they will do that as well. they already compose songs and such. the programming will be probably something like programing the computer in star trek.

    Peppermint 9 is an excellent Linux Distro.

    Have a look at this if you really want to make that computer fly.

    i have near the same set up. a dell, optiplex 270. i can add 2 more memory, at 1GB DDR 400 MHz. to the motherboard.
    on my 2nd HD, i have lubuntu installed. it takes a bit to start, but is so much faster than XP, when i visit xp, on the 1st HD, i cant believe how slow it is to start, or shut down.
    once ya get a shot of linux, is enough to want more.
    the only bad question is one that is not asked.
