Today I wanted to take this space to tell you about a GNU / Linux distribution that although not developed on Ubuntu if it has the same philosophy as Lubuntu and Xubuntu, that is, be a distribution for computers with few resources. I am referring to Minino or rather Galpon Minino.
galpon Minino is project based Mini shed i the Minino project of a user of Guadalinex. So these projects creating a converged distribution obsolete equipment but spoke Galician, Spanish and Catalan. Its bases are currently on Debian with a desktop lxde modified.
Features of Galpon Minino
The minimum requirements for this desktop-based distribution are:
- 500 mhz processor.
- 128 mb of Ram.
- 2.5 GB of HDD.
If you want to use in addition to the desktop, to browse the web, it is recommended to have twice the above specifications.
The result is not a decent distribution, but the following. A distribution for obsolete computers that few web development teams have managed to make, being one of the best distributions for older computers, well above Lubuntu and Xubuntu in terms of performance and performance.
galpon Minino is one of the most important projects in our country that is slowly expanding. We can currently find at galpon Minino in computers of Galician and Andalusian institutions thanks to the project of the University of Granada that has been enabling computers with this distribution. In addition a distribution by normal equipment but for a infantile user is being developed, murris and is also being modified Raspbian to be able to have a version of Galpon Minino in Raspberry Pi.
Personally I have had the pleasure of being able to install it and use this distribution and not only its current version but previous versions. It’s simply amazing, not only for its performance but for the way it approaches the desktop, the translations and the support they give. Home-based projects seem to work much better than expensive ones, no believe? And if you doubt my words go through their website and try it, you don’t need to have an old computer as it has a live disc to prove it. What are you waiting for? And by the way tell us about your experience.
