So, I’m seriously considering installing Antergos after having spent much of the day watching videos and reading about it. I used Manjaro once upon a time and currently run Peppermint 7.
I’m torn between installing Antergos with Gnome or Cinnamon. (I basically only want to use one DE as my brain muddles easily ) I’m wondering, though, how the RAM usage between the two compares when they are at idle. One review said Gnome in Antergos used about 800 mb at idle, which seems a bit high. How does Cinnamon stack up?
Also, what are the main differences in applications available at install between the two (or on the initial installation), if any? (From screenshots, it appears the basic audio player is different between the two, for example.) I know they will look different, but I gather there are ways to tweak the desktop in Cinnamon just as there are in Gnome, albeint probably without the Tweak Tool.
I apologize if this is not the right place to pose this or if these questions have been answered elsewhere. (I did not see them.)
EDIT: Fixed subject line to reflect the fact that I’m asking about RAM usage and not CPU.
