gurtid: Bunsen Labs

After trying out several distros, Bunsen Labs was the pick. Youtube works.

5yrs support, so plenty of time for my mum to upgrade her laptop.

Thanks for the suggestion. I might use it on my main PC, for when I want to compile OpenWrt. Cheers again.

gzt: YouTube works? Good result!

Sometimes it a bit jerky and then other times it's fine. But overall much much better than what was happening with the previous OS.

I used the 32 bit non-pae version of BunsenLabs, I could have forced the pae flag on the laptop and used another distro but I'd rather use a distro that supported non-pae out of the box, so to speak.

Firefox uses far less memory than Chrome, I guess this is part of the reason why Youtube works better. RAM use sits under 500MB, with too many tabs open the CPU will go up to 100%, but as long as only 1 or 2 tabs are open, and only one application is in use at a time, all is fine.

Thanks again, much appreciated.

For other readers, I tried Manjaro LXQT & Enlightenment too, The live disc versions worked but installation would fail.
