Testing SimplyMEPIS 11.0 Beta 2 again, then antiX core and aptosid

Filed under
Linux

I used the version of SimplyMEPIS, Version 11.0 Beta 2 that I had already installed on my Gateway 2000 series portable 17" PA6A system, but when I moved on to antiX core and aptosid, I ran both of these systems directly from DVDs that I had recently created. But I did something else; I loaded their images completely into memory.

Both of these systems are very responsive when installed on disk, but when you run them completely loaded into memory, they are downright fast.

The light Puppy distribution has long been one of those distributions that you could load into memory, and it has been the default to do just that, and it has worked that way for years. But with the much larger default memory included in my two most current systems (already a couple of years old), I can now load much larger CD and DVD system images completely into volatile memory, and then optionally mount one or more disk drive partitions on those systems if I want to save something.
