The custom SiNG desktop makes for a simpler and more productive environment, while at the same time maximizing the usable vertical screen space on modern widescreen screen layouts.
Although SiNG was developed for use on multi-core 64 bit PCs, you don’t need the power of a 64 bit multi-core processor to run it. SiNG really only requires 256MB of memory, and takes steps to minimized the memory footprint of the operating system to give you more resources to run applications. Even the standard HD desktop background image is reduced to just 145 bytes.
Under the hood:
SiNG is built from a combination of Debian/Ubuntu/Kubuntu, Lubuntu/Xubuntu, and is 100% compatible with the current Long Term Support Version, which provides system and application updates until 2020.
The desktop layout is designed for maximum efficiency after creating and testing over fifty different desktop layouts. The current layout is handled by a true 64 bit custom SiNG implementation of JWM
