just wondering what software you use on win10 tablets, taking into account that the CPU/emmc drives are not top notch performance.

Thanks for posting. I have installed a few apps you recommended. I have always hated Adobe’s constant nagging for updates! Nice lightweight apps that work well for our tablets. Community written apps +1. SourceForge +1.
I hope to see other high quality, low overhead apps posted.

Thanks for posting Evil.
A couple of questions:
- Any reason you prefer Chrome to Firefox? I find it a memory hog; i use a custom, light version of Firefox and i’m quite happy with it: http://sourceforge.net/projects/lightfirefox/
- I only do easy coding, so i’m not sure this tool will be useful for you, but it’s really fast and light: https://xhmikosr.github.io/notepad2-mod/
Also looking into using Kodi for any media comsumption (music, local/network videos, twitch, youtube, ted talks) as it seems to be REAALY lor resource using.December 29, 2015 at 7:19 pm #20435Evil E.Participant

No, not particularly. I guess it’s more of a habit of having Chrome installed on a lot of the machines I come in contact with… 😉 FF is also a good web browser (also with lots of interesting plug-ins available), although (like Chrome) a bit heavy on the resources. I’m going to take a look at that light version you suggested, this might be a good choice for a low power tablet.

Interesting suggestion, thanks a lot for the tip, Andrujka !!! 🙂

Yeah, Kodi (formerly known as XBMC for those who don’t know it) is another really nice one. How could I forget that one ??? 😮 😉
Definitely one of the better media player softs around, and a favorite on Raspberry Pi and other Linux based media player systems.September 8, 2017 at 10:20 am #71776
