Snowlinux 3 E17 Crystal Review: Fast, very fast!

Filed under
Linux

The world of preferred Linux window manager is dominated by Gnome, KDE, XFCE and LXDE primarily. About 90% of the new releases I see are based on either of the four desktops because of the extremely elegant graphical interfaces they offer. However, with changing priorities and a need to provide aesthetically pleasing visual effects, Linux world is also undergoing tremendous transformation, specially Gnome 3. Most of the today's highly sophisticated Linux distros no longer run well on low resource environment or support desktops less than 512 MB RAM.

Having used and liked Macpup for quite sometime, I was eager to try Snowlinux 3 E17 with Enlightenment desktop once I read the release note on Distrowatch. Earlier, I reviewed Snowlinux 3 and was pretty impressed with it. I downloaded the 733 MB 32-bit ISO from the Snowlinux server and first did a live-boot followed by full installation.
