Green extensions named *.tar.gz are safer to use on low ram systems, because they only write to /home and /opt, which are already writable.
Yellow and red extensions are named .dsl, because they have to write to more areas of the filesystem, and any part of the filesystem that is to be written to must be unpacked to ram. In other words, they can eat a lot more ram.
.uci extensions are compressed cloop files that are mounted rather than unpacked. These are the safest extensions to use on low ram systems, because they use almost no ram, since they usually exist on a physical drive, and are mounted, rather than unpacked into ram.
All .ucis as well as system extensions, like gnu-utils are rated blue.
Adding this explanation to the Docs.
They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. That's nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.
