Video : Armbian Hirsute XFCE4 - What's new, fixes, tips and benchmarks

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I've just finished a new video about Armbian Hirsute XFCE4.

I show what's new. Mostly the feel and look are a bit more modern.
Here is my video.


Some other notes I've got :


Memory usage
buster < focal < hirsute
xfce4 < budgie < cinnamon

CPU performance
buster < hirsute < focal
xfce4 < cinnamon < budgie

So Buster xfce uses the least memory. And is also the slowest.

Hirsute is quite a bit slower than Focal, and uses more memory. I do find the newer looks worth the price.


Here my benchmarks :
