Lubuntu -- That is as far as I can tell (2012), the Ubuntu variant that is the lightest. Installed U++ on Kubuntu before that.

I had to put stuff on a ram drive so picked the lightest OS of the Ubuntu variants that I could see.

I'm considering testing Lubuntu or Linux Mint.

I didn't like Unity really well in Ubuntu.

PS: Also bumping this thread so more users answer.

I use both Arch Linux and Windows, but prefer to develop on Arch Linux, and in general, Linux.

Regards.

Interesting. I've been wanting to try Fedora 16, but didn't find any suitable U++ rpm packages. How did you install it?
There is a spec file in svn... I guess that with some minimal tweaking you could use it to build rpm package on your fedora. Or you can always compile it from source code, the old way Smile (Ask in separate thread, if you are feeling adventurous Wink )



I now installed Fedora in another box. This spec file will be useful.

Hi,

I didn't like Unity really well in Ubuntu.

Unity, gnome shell, cinnamon... are complicated environments that I don't like. Heavy and not usefull !

You can have a Mate version of Linux Mint : it's really like the "old" (but nice !) gnome 2.

No equivallent to Lubuntu with Mint, but you have an XFCE version (like Xubuntu). And of course, you can install OpenBox/LXDE. It's what I do when I need a light environment (I don't like so much XFCE...).

And about light distros, I just discovered (yesterday afternoon !) Slitaz. Seems very nice and fast... I'll try to install U++ on it as soon as I have some time.

I've been happily running OpenSUSE 12.3 for some months now.

I now upgraded to OpenSUSE 13.1. This release will be evergreen and have support for 3 years. So, I'll leave it alone stable, just receiving updates.

I got U++ package from https://build.opensuse.org/project/show/home:dolik_rce:night ly

Great distro. Feels like Windows 7 with KDE so well integrated. Good escape from Windows 8 madness.

Linux+UPP is otherwise fine except the debugger is much harder to use. For example, while the debugged program is running, the ide is not usable unless the debugged one is paused at a break point. You cannot view the log, nor can you edit files, ...

Overall, I am pleasantly surprised that Win is only 56%... Smile

What!? Nonsense! Laughing

I would like to lodge a complaint! This poll is obviously biased, with over 11 choices for Linux and 3 for BSD. But only 1 for Windows? What about Windows 3.1? What about IBM DOS? Very Happy

Actually, that sounds like it would be an awesome port. I will make sure someday that U++ is faithfully ported to those OSes.

And that is how Utopia was created. It all started right here, with DOS, Windows, some fermented fruit juice, a 286, and our fatherly lord and shepard, the Profit BillyG, with his Debt freeing and Interest bearing Sun, the Oracle!

Edit: I forgot to comment about Mac OSX

CrunchBang. Debian based, but more lightweight and... elegant. With same problems, however.

I started using Gentoo, and am quite happy with it. only once I had a problem: libpng got upgraded and since I haven't upp as an ebuild and my build is using shared libs, I couldn't run upp for a while. remember: always build umk, statically, for these situations...
