Best Linux Distros For Home PCs
If the Linux distribution you just installed on your computer has Firefox, change it right away! Here is why: The Opera browser is twice as fast. With broadband, Firefox 3.5 opens a link to Yahoo from the XR77 Web Portal in 5 seconds, while Opera takes 2.5 seconds. You want even faster than Opera? Use the Epiphany or Midori WebKit based browsers. Midori may still have a few bugs, even though PcLinuxOS got it to work right. The Epiphany web browser is stone axe reliable. Even though Epiphany is a Gnome browser, it does not need the Gnome desktop to run. Another Webkit powered browser I really like is Arora. Arora is fast and very stable. The fastest useable browser of them all is a Webkit based browser named Cream. Sony Ericsson SmartPhones Unlocked
How about the old reliable Mozilla-Netscape browser? This browser is available in the Seamonkey (Iceape) internet suite. It must be fast because this is the browser of choice for Puppy Linux. It feels just a hair slower than Opera, as it takes 3.5 seconds to open a Yahoo link on the XR77 Web Portal. All browser testing was done with DreamLinux on an Athlon 1000mhz CPU desktop with 512mb of ram, a TNT2 32mb video card, and RoadRunner broadband.
All I need is AbiWord and Gnumeric. Both AbiWord and Gnumeric will handle any job I need to do. In fact with AbiWord I can make PDF documents from text or HTML!
AbiWord is very fast. It fact it opens about as fast as most simple text writers. The learning curve for AbiWord and Gnumeric is short as it is so much like OpenOffice or Microsoft Office.
Siag Office is even more lightweight than AbiWord with Gnumeric. Siag Office Pathetic Writer and Spreadsheet reads and writes MS documents too!
I have an old Dell 100d SmartStep that will not allow me to allocate more system memory to video. So my fix was to buy an GeForce 128mb PCI video card from Newegg for $25. Make sure the video card you buy is for PCI and not PCIe (PCI Express), as PCIe is a longer slot and the card won't fit. Now my 10 year old Dell with Mepis Antix Linux and 512mb of ram runs just as fast as a new DualCore computer with Windows-7 on it! No kidding!
Another workaround is downgrading to Flash version 7 or Gnash. Gnash may be the better choice as it will it will play all flash 7 and support some for 8 & 9. Flash 7 will play 85% of all flash videos on the web. All those headheld mobile devices use a version called "Flash Lite", that is pretty much the same as Flash 7. On an older computer, I would go with Gnash so I could play YouTube videos. Install GStreamer first, then Gnash.
