Xubuntu Live lacks resource use indicator tools!

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on June 02, 2006 10:49 PM
One thing you gotta love about distros like Damn Small Linux (DSL) is that when you boot it live you can see the entire story of the use of the system resources that DSL is using on any system.

Xubuntu - it is a mystery when using this what resources that the Xubuntu Live CD is using? I conider this a must have on default install for any distro looking to qualify as a "lite" distro to run on older hardware with less RAM and Hard Drive space!

Yep - A system resouce examination tool sure would be handy to help determine if the low powered machine has enough RAM and Drive space to install properly to the system. Maybe in a "lite" distro I have got used to expecting the little extras that someone paid attention to,<nobr> <wbr></nobr>...that seem to be left out of Xubuntu, that we get with a distro like DSL and Puppy.

If I missed something in this observation then please advise, thank-you!

Is this also supported for 3 years with security updates? Hmmmm? The timing and quality of these updates will be what exactly?
