Best OS my opinion

Jul 3, 2019 - 1:55 PM

  • I have tried quite a few os/s on the AP and honestly the best preforming is Peppermint. Low memory requirements, very responsive and best of all fits easily on the emmc with everything you need at install. Now if I can get the darned hdmi audio to work it'll be perfect. So if you haven't tried it yet you'll be pleasantly suprised.

  • Lubuntu 18.04 (LTS) works well.
    TBH anything that uses lxde is snappy, xfce would be my next choice (tried both with Stretch). Anything Gnome or KDE based is going to feel slow. MATE might vary from person to person.
    Tho I haven't tried it, I'm happy with Lubuntu running Linuxcnc on my API, Puppy Linux might be worth a try. Salix usually works ok on low spec boxes.
