First Steps with OpenELEC on the Raspberry Pi 2 Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Sunday, March 29 2015 @ 01:13 PM EST
Contributed by: fk

OpenELEC uses very little system resources for processor or memory. There's no need to use any special customization tips to get good performance with the RPi2.
