SliTaz 1.0 on 450Mhz K6-2, 256Mb

Filed under
Linux

I’ve been getting a lot of links back to an offhand post I made about three months ago about SliTaz, but I realize now I never really “reviewed” that distro, if you can call these random notes “reviews.” Since I have the ugly laptop on hand for Hardy testing, I thought I’d give it break from suffering under Gnome and allow it to run an ultralight system.

And those are the best words for SliTaz — both “ultralight” and “system.” One of the beautiful things about this teeny little distro is that it all fits in under 25Mb. Now that’s ultralight.

But it doesn’t skimp at all. You get all the major applications you would want from a full-figured distro — yes, even Firefox.
