Every now and then various OS fanboys post something about his OS being the best.
Both were running pretty powerfull machines (vista had quad core and 4gb ram).
I did the same with 757mb ram and an old dual core.
Those fanboys said they could run more than 100 applications with there machines.
Big deal. If you don’t do anything with the apps, that’s not hard at all.
I would like to see them try the same while decoding some HD stuff.
I know it’s pointless, but I opened up all the applications on my mid-end box running ubuntu and made a video off it.
If you looked closely at the video, you see that I was only using about 500mb of ram.
I just ran out of applications to open.
There was some lag in the video (when the cube spins), must be because of gtkrecordmydesktop because it didn’t lag at all when I was using it.
Also, did you guys noticed how I took the 2 best eye candy things (aero and exposé) from OSX and Vista and used them in the video. I could have used other plugins, but I didn’t.
ps: not all applications are shown on the “scale” plugin.
