You’ve probably heard on more than one occasion that Linux is used as an operating system on older or low-resource computers. While there are some more demanding desktops in this regard, in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, unity it was slowly becoming one of the lightest. But this problem can be solved thanks to the latter optimization for low performance graphics which has been incorporated.
have reduced a series of graphical effects within the system to be able to provide greater performance and, above all, not to lose this valuable feature that has always distinguished Linux from other operating systems: its operability.
Of course, Unity is not one of the lightest desktops in existence, but thanks to the future optimizations being performed on compiz it is possible to gain many integers in terms of performance without losing any of its attractive effects as has already happened in MAT or LXDE.
Indeed, through the new low-resource mode that has been incorporated, it is possible to improve the overall performance of the computer on all those computers with fewer memory and graphics resources. This way we talk to you keeps window animations, transition effects, and certain transparencies, so the feeling of following Unity is maintained.
Some of the most notable changes we will see in the system are those related to the opacity of the windows, which is especially evident when accessing the system or when deploying the dash of applications. In all these cases we will see that the transparency of the system has been replaced by a black background. Many of the animations have been removed and the window shadows are less pronounced.
The result, however, is quite attractive and provides a to minismalista which is surely to the liking of many purists. Thanks to this new way, performance on computers should be greatly improved.
What do you think of the result? Have you had a chance to test on your computers?
