Howto: Popular AppImages one click away

In fact, my efforts since the first post in this thread was to abide to K.I.S.S. principle. All I was trying is to fill the gap of applications I M.I.S.S. (mostly I seem to sympathize) when I use Porteus (and Linux). I've tried to do it really simple, reducing it to just a matter of point and click....

Best DVD-Video to minimal sized compressed video file

I'm late to the party, but this is how I did my last attempt at ripping DVD's once I rescued and updated my notes on that. This would take a 3 min. sample output of the original source compressed with h.265 video codec while subtitles and audio are passed through (copied without being transcoded). v...

Have a look at resource usage comparison figures with GIMP and Libreoffice use cases. As for how memory is freed after use, I presume the same applies to AppImages, because both bundling methods share basically the same nature. Cheers! P.S.: Would you please correct the Google Earth link @ first pos...

We shall never exclude poorer People I'm doing this not to exclude anyone, but (I hope) to give everyone an alternate method that I think is a perfect match with the Porteus style due to its modular concept. In fact, appimages are squashed filesystems like the ones in xzm modules. By the way, I thi...

I don't really feel that size matters nowadays... Just consider how much pendrives and HD/SSD's you have collected by now. ;) On the other hand, the bloated nature of appimages, could perhaps be considered as a strength if used the right way... That is, firejailed/sandboxed. Think of those unique an...

Would a xzm be more responsive In fact, I did this appimage because I had trouble with the .xzm portability of Google Earth (have a look to the linked thread).
