@grainloom ooh, I haven't poked redox in a couple of years, looks like I'm overdue for another swing through the Alternative OS Landscape again
@grainloom Hmm... I can run Xubuntu 18.04 on my old netbook with 1GB of RAM, but it does end up crashing even the most minimal browser unless I use a swap partition/file.
It's also 32-bit, and I know the 64-bit stuff has more to it and therefore requires slightly more resources.
@grainloom I should mention that Firefox does indeed run into an OOM crash when used on this kind of setup when loading most sites, so don't attempt to start it up unless you're only using extremely lightweight sites with near-zero scripts.
I've been using a lightweight browser called Min instead, which is the only lightweight browser I can find that is still being updated and supports 32-bit. They even have a .deb package available.
@grainloom Well, shit. I guess they dropped 32-bit, too. My netbook is now officially outta luck since even Midori crashes w/ OOM errors when loading sites like Google Docs.
