PNX is also portable, meaning that just as with Pacman, it can work on other architectures, like #ARM.

@rn92 It must have been quite a while ago. Currently, it uses ~550 MB on a cold boot.

See more at our interview at It's FOSS.
@rn92 That will depend on what you consider "heavy." It's going to use RAM where possible, it's definitively not going to use e.g., 300 MB on idle, in a cold-boot.

Also, if you want to know more about what we're planning to do in the future and why we do things our way.
