on this lovely blog entry MICAH LEE explains why he moved from ubuntu to debian…

LOVE IT

 

… it’s basically the same, why i refuse to use itunes and ipods.

because they follow the old Micro$oft motto: „we love to limit you“

We don’t want the money… we want the FREEDOM. (money could buy… but often fails)

if you like the minimalistic approach of Debian (the net iso + internet (e.g. in a VirtualBox) will be all that you need to begin with)

you should give your (elderly?) laptop a shot at knoppix.

it’s Debian based, comes with minimalistic lxde window manager = very low-resource consumption (RAM usage was around 128MB = Win95) and presents you a set of useful tools.

E.g. including „minitube“ which let’s you search and download youtube videos easily.

Package: minitube (2.2-1 and others)

  • Native YouTube client

    Minitube is a native YouTube client. With it you can watch YouTube videos in a new way: you type a keyword, Minitube gives you an endless video stream.

    Minitube does not require the Flash Player.

    Minitube is not about cloning the original YouTube web interface, it aims to create a new TV-like experience.
