nobody knows how real people live

people come into the puppy linux forums on a weekly basis like "yeah im running windows XP right now, Ive got 500MB of ram and an Athlon XP" or something like that looking to use puppy to keep their hardware going.

Every time some dev is like "nobody uses 32 bit PCs anymore just buy a new computer" i wanna fuckin scream

@dysfun altho running a 64bit os on 512 megs of ram sounds like a fast track to the pain zone

@dysfun ill tell ya what it *doesnt* have though is like, any SSE recent enough to run a modern browser lol

@artemis i have a ryzen 9 3900X here with 12 cores and 24 threads and it is just about enough to run a browser. wouldn't like to downgrade.

@dysfun i daily drive a 32-bit intel atom with 1 core and 2 threads, and 2 gigs of ram

@artemis i currently have 519 tabs open in this window. not sure i'd want to try browsing on your machine lol
