Thanks for the tip about UEKs. I’d much rather seen a comparison to Archie, or Susie that uses a completely different boot-strap (not grub) Most RHEL users I know use centOS or knoppix rather than some convoluted version Fedora. The reason for that is not all RHEL is free even though it is open source. I’d like to see how some of the newer container Linux systems stack up considering I’ve seen my resources being hogged by new sandboxes. I’ve been exploring better ways to manage daemons rather than just killing them off. I guess by now you’ve figured out I’m using an older PC with limited resources. Not an enterprise system. :rocket: :ship:
