When they say that Pleroma can run on low-end machines, they ain't lying.
Here's a screenshot of Pleroma running on a Mac Mini G4, an Apple computer released in 2005.
@lanodan We should try running Pleroma on a GameCube or something
@xj9 well it's on par with a Pi Zero W, but you can't really compare since some RPis have a multi-core CPU while the Mac Mini has a single-core CPU
@mrtino Gigahertz and gigabytes seems a fairly generous definition of 'low-end' to me, but then I *am* pretty old.
@leeb it's not because it has 1GB of RAM and 1.25GHz that it means it's fast
It's actually horrible to use, and that's one of the reasons I switched from Mac OS X to Gentoo
But yeah, compiling GCC for 12 hours or Seamonkey for 4 hours (and still being unable to browse the web smoothly) is fun
@mrtino I didn't mention 'fast'. I was just surprised that it counted as 'low-end' these days. I think that says something about the state of application and web development these days. But like I said, I'm old. You kick on and enjoy what you've got!
@mrtino someone run it from a phone.
