Hi,

Wait, there are operating systems originated from here that can run Minecraft?

Seriously now, memory usage isn't the only factor that classifies an operating system as good or bad. Security, usability, good use of available resources (not only memory), etc, also play an important role in the classification. Although, yes, having low memory (both RAM and disk usage) and processor requirements is an advantage since the user will be able to store more data then.

Toaru OS doesn't have an installer yet and the browser is still in early alpha.

It's probably not too hard to install it manually. Anyway, I think your point is that it's not really usable yet.

What i was trying to illustrate is that this is how much RAM a normal system here that is quite usable uses compared to the not extremely tiny linux distros (like core, which is a terminal environment that is smaller than firefox and probably uses less RAM than firefox) which are not friendly.

Well, is it quite usable now or not? If it is, install it and use it exclusively for a day. If not, stop talking nonsense.

By the way, I actually forgot the -m option for qemu when I tried the live CD first, so I know that 128 MB aren't enough for ToaruOS. The only thing you get with that is a red "Out of memory" message.

I am as confused by that statement as you are.

I think he's saying that his GT100 struggled while playing Minecraft.

Meh, my old GT100 had 8 entire CUDA Cores.
