Who said anything about Microsoft Windows? All I know is that Links runs smoothly on my 32MB (linux) laptop, while Firefox takes about 5 minutes to start up, what with all the swapping. That's running under X-Windows. You don't even need the bloat of X-Windows to run 'links -g' (You can use SVGAlib
). I'm probably an exception though, since I use ratpoison
as my window manager when I do run X. But still, it shows that you can have a perfectly acceptable web experience using a very lean setup.
