|Debian Gnome vs Debian Fluxbox|
I wanted to look at Debian Linux and compare the desktop environments. Fluxbox is a lightweight desktop that runs very fast, uses few resources and provides many of the features of bulkier desktop environments. Lets take a closer look at how Fluxbox performs with the Debian Linux distribution.
Debian Linux With The Gnome Desktop
The Gnome desktop runs 83 tasks when it starts up. That means that 823 processes are running just so you can get to the desktop. Gnome starts up with 389,880K of memory that is used just so you can see the desktop.
Debian Linux With The Fluxbox Desktop
Fluxbox starts with 67 tasks and uses 350,000K of memory to get to the desktop.
Here is an illustration of OpenOffice which works fine on Fluxbox.
