Default openmamba

openmamba is a lightweight KDE distro which on my machine uses about a third of the memory needed to run Kororaa. This could well appeal to those who prefer to build up their own software collection, rather than have someone else's choices installed by default. The package manager is quirky as in different, but works well enough although CPU use during downloads is relatively high.

It always amazes me how many devs seem to concentrate a lot of effort on the initial presentation of the system. Solus for instance gives us a dyslexic worm during boot, and openmamba presents users with a series of bubble encapsulated throbbing green snakes.

Boot logos apart, openmamba is worth checking out.
Buy a Hoover and prove technology sucks.
