I was born with a bad left eye and hence my right eye is EXTREMELY strained, myopic and tired after 30+ years of using and working with computers.
Before I possibly needlessly start reading through the pages for Metro, I would like to know if pursuing the associated processes would produce any sufficient benefits over installing the available Stage 3 Build for my Laptop.
Boot time is important to me and for a reference from the moment the GRUB entry was executed, for Manajaro 0.9.0 Xfce+Ob OpenRC, the Login Screen was displayed in 22 seconds which is a lot better than the variable 30+ seconds it would take for Manjaro Xfce 0.8.10 using systemd (vomit!!).
Applications I would be using would be as follows.
Internet Browser - Pale Moon
Network Manager - USB Broadband Modems
PDF Editing - Master PDF Editor
D.E. - Xfce or Cinnamon
File Manager - spaceFM File Search is really good
inxi -F produces the following output.
