@dysfun i daily drive a 32-bit intel atom with 1 core and 2 threads, and 2 gigs of ram

@dysfun it runs browsers! and mastodon works on it just fine ;)

@artemis i currently have 519 tabs open in this window. not sure i'd want to try browsing on your machine lol

@artemis @dysfun I'm with Artemis here.

How do you LIVE like that?

Digital detox, post haste.

Albeit, I'm the sort of individual who sets background images to a single color because I remember when 7MHz CPUs were FAST and a background image load added appreciable delay to boot times and performance.

It still does! I never disclosed it widely but Windows XP can be crippled by using an animated GIF as a background image (pegs the CPU at 99%).

@dysfun @artemis
I have a bunch of tabs and use this to not get OOM killed.

You can have your cake and eat it too.
