I know it is probably not of a lot of interest to most folks, but I have started using Sparky Linux, and I can’t help but write this post singing its praises!
I have been using Linux in various forms for years. It has gotten increasingly easier to use, and I have really enjoyed playing with different distros. I may be done shopping around, though, if this last three days using Sparky Linux is any indication.
First off, I have a Lenovo X220. It is a great little machine but not the newest or fanciest anymore. I put a solid state drive in soon after I got it in December. Using Linux Mint Debian, it would boot in about 13 seconds. Now with Sparky, that is down to about 7 seconds. And it doesn’t slow down from there. It seems to be lighter and more responsive.
There has been no drama with this install. I love it. If you use Linux or are curious about it, check Sparky Linux out. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
