8 of the best tiny Linux distros

,----[ Quote ]
| The winner: Slitaz 9/10
| We hope you've seen that the world of light 
| distros is more exciting than you may have 
| imagined. Choosing the right one depends on the 
| hardware you want to run it on and what you want 
| to use it for.
| The Ubuntu-based distros are interesting, 
| particularly the nascent Lubuntu, mainly because 
| they have a tiny footprint but offer the promise 
| of installing anything from the vast Ubuntu 
| multiverse. However, we were looking for a a 
| distro to work painlessly in a cramped hardware 
| environment.
| Honourable mentions must go to DSL and Tiny Core 
| at this point, which have clambered into the 
| territory of the minuscule. It's amazing how 
| usable a system can be that takes up less space 
| on your drive than your holiday pictures. Puppy 
| Linux and Unity were both easy to use, although 
| the latter was a bit more polished (and bigger).



SliTaz Linux 3.0 lends credence to the phrase âSmall but Powerfulâ

| SliTaz 3.0 (release announcement) is upon
| us and we decided to take this tiny
| distribution for a spin and see how well it
| caters to the minimalist crowd. This
| distribution weighs in at an incredible 30
| meg download, but does it contain the
| applications one needs to have a functional
| machine? Let's take a look.


Greetings from Slitaz 3.0

,----[ Quote ]
| Itâs been a year since the last âstableâ
| release of Slitaz, and whether or not the
| yearlong break is part of the development
| plan, I have been chomping at the bit,
| waiting for this new version.
| [...]
| If I could build an entire system â and I
| have tried â I would want it to turn out
| just like Slitaz. Even my lightest, fastest
| efforts with outdated software in custom-
| built configurations canât stand up to what
| Slitaz gives you for nothing. Itâs
| fantastic stuff.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
