If we talk about PerformanceApricity OS is proud to mention on their site that they can count the Gnome 3 desktop, using only about 500 megabytes, quite remarkable considering that other similar systems use an amount of memory that exceeds one gigabyte of RAM nothing more managing the desktop. Obviously, this favors Apricity boot times of just seconds.

La fullfilment of security requirements is another important aspect. Apricity OS works with Uncompllicated Firewall (UFW) to keep the information in full security.

This specific site browser (SSB) seeks to reduce the number of steps between the user and the use of a preferred web application.

    According to it, it works with computers that have 512 RAM but it was only designed for 64Bit computers 🙁

      64-bit PCs date back to 2006, just when Windows Vista was released.

      In my case, I have a PC dating from 2006 and the Pentium D processor supports 64 bits as if nothing else.

    Hello everyone; Personally, I installed it and tried it for a week, Apricity got me hooked, it's fast, stable, it has good packaging for the basic use that I give it (watching movies, basic photo editing, writing documents), and I thought I'd keep it for a long time, but a week later, when I wanted to turn it on, I couldn't enter, it stayed in the grub, and it didn't give any report of the problem, and that's when I began to realize certain things that I didn't see at first, such as that there is no Spanish-language community to give you hand in case of problems (still), almost all current users are English, and I can hardly make myself understood in Spanish, English or in dreams, I think this distribution promises, but it needs to mature and correct some detail.

      Since it is based on Arch, the community is great about that. I'm not looking for solutions for the distro itself, but I look for it with references to Arch, to the mother 😛
