Re: Building a highly functional desktop with lightweight software

When using those lightweight alternative distros one does not have a good selection of software available. That is one reason why I would rather tinker my own desktop than use the software chosen by someone else.

And it is always the right and ecological decision to use old readily available hardware, and not to run and buy some more electronic garbage that will fill your basement before you realise it.
