[News] Review of the Latest Damn Small Linux is Positive

Hash: SHA1

A Review of Damn Small Linux 4.4.10

,----[ Quote ]
| For the first time this week I finally had the pleasure of taking Damn Small 
| Linux (hereafter, DSL) for a test drive. One of the companies that I work for 
| required an easy, lightweight and quick solution to salvage an older project. 
| The owner had approached me and demanded that I, ” Get rid of this Compact 
| Windows s*** and get this thing up and running” accomplishing X, Y and Z. A 
| lot of problems had risen as a result of going with Microsoft Windows in the 
| first place. The biggest of which was licensing. Being installed in public 
| areas, this project/solution was to accomplish 1-2 specific task(s) without 
| user interaction and nothing more.        



Damn Small indeed.

| I now have an operation version of Linux on a Pendrive. It might be worth
| noting that the ink in the pen dried up a long time ago. I look at my handy
| little pendrive and smile. Then I look at the pile of notes I wrote while I
| was trying to get it to work. For the moment I will continue to bask in my
| Linux victory and for now I think I will put the notes in my computer room.


DSL - Damn Small Linux 4.4.10 review

| As part of a survival toolkit, Damn Small Linux could be something of a
| saviour. Earlier this year, this writer used a previous release of the
| distribution to excise a couple of gigabytes of files from an
| otherwise-locked-down Vista installation, and while it didn't save the
| machine concerned from complete reinstall, it did rescue an awful lot of
| data. It did it with no fuss, utter simplicity and earned a lot of
| appreciation as a result.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
