Google has recently shared ChromeOS Flex(although stable release will come later). As ChromeBooks which run on ChromeOS have incredibly underpowered processors and still run well, I am just thinking that what would be more Lightweight, any Linux Distro with Xfce or ChromeOS-Flex? Is ChromeOS really that lightweight that it would be able to breath life into old Laptops just like Linux does?
It probably is very Light and fast - but Antix Linux is also very light and blazing fast. So is Puppy.
At least with Antix and Puppy, you have Full Control over your OS...
Pardon me if I am wrong, but AntiX is more or a WM thing while Xfce is a desktop environment. So I was just wondering that even if ChromeOS-Flex is as lightweight Xfce while maintaining it's good looks and subtle animations, it's wonderful. Only con being not open-source and privacy respecting but who cares as long as it works(at least I don't). So as a crux my question is that if anyone has experienced ChromeOS then can you tell from your experience that is it really that lightweight like the ZorinOS-Lite? Might be even lighter while maintaining it's looks?
I've not used Chrome OS enough to benchmark it against another... Partly because I found it frustrating to sue and very locked down.
I have not used Chrome OS Flex, at all.
If Chrome OS Flex offers a "Try" version, in the manner that Zorin OS does, maybe you can test it. Or try it in a Virtual Machine.
ChromeOS is basically web app based and doesn't really have storage on SSD's and mainly relies on cloud storage. An XFCE based linux distro is better IMO.
Sorry i posed it in wrong place
