[discussion] Using bigger programs and Delicate.
Food for thought.

Sometimes I compile packages or making PKGBUILDs that are a bit high end, so I guess it's not recommended for normal use. Perhaps it's a good idea to publish a list of programs that runs with Delicate but need more ram or faster processor.
A good example is the GIMP (the PKGBUILD is in another forum section). It's a great program, but on 'old' computers it's sometimes pretty useless.
But when your computer has the hardware for it, I guess it's nice to try to get some things working with Delicate instead of another big distro.
At the end Delicate can do the same job on an older machine with no big speed difference than the same program on a newer machine with a big (bloated) distro. At least that's my experience and my excuse to use Delicate on a P3

Hardware in use: Compaq PIII- 1GHZ, Geforce 4000, 256mb, 80gb HD
