Stretch on AMD Duron

I thought of dropping this into the RAM usage thread but then thought maybe it deserves a thread of its own. This appeared on a 'popular imageboard' this evening, I thought some here may find it... interesting.

This is beyond my understanding, certainly at this point, of how a D9 system can run on that little RAM. Would be good if someone could elaborate.

EDIT: must be with no desktop, intriguing.




Oh, and if you're interested, here's the living situation. Wish I had more idea of the background here.

It is easy, if you get rid of all the un-needed "blobs" and baggage, like "Gnome",...
4gb ram is not necessary for Debian

I don't see what the living conditions have to do with it though. Looks like they just use the room for the computer, not to really live in.
In any event, if we include "living conditions"

and then, this:
Not Debian, but still the amount of ram used is not much, because I am not using blobs and baggage I don't need.
"What we expect you have already Done"

Before doing anything, read the Debian documentation:

It doesn't make sense from a Windows point of view for sure.
Linux is not completely bloated and modules are loaded if needed only. Maybe the code running today on this machine is not completely different from the one from the 2005 era. New bug replaced old ones, some new features and that's it.
Anyway, I like your post. It helps remind me that Personal Computing is solved. The problem to address now is we need to create more bloat in order to make the modern (as in "less then 5 years old") computer mandatory for anyone (not everybody is a gamer, scientist, server hoarder).
