The SliTaz Experience

Filed under
Linux

Slitaz is yet another Linux distro! (oh no…) It’s a very small and efficient one, ranking in the same category as Damn Small Linux and Puppy. I am probably not the most qualified person to talk about linux distros as i am not the bigest fanboy of them (i’m more of a windows/mac user – but let’s remember mac os came from the same place as linux), but if you want to hear a somewhat more impartial view on the matter keep on reading.

For all those non-techies out there (although i’m gussing only techies read this stuff), when you run an operating system from RAM, the whole thing becomes insanely fast. There are a few downsides to this:

Your system could run out of RAM and the whole machine freezes;

The Operating System itself has to be of a very small size (under 512MB and even that’s pushing it) to be able to run it in RAM

But all these risks and downsides are completely shadowed by the speed of an OS running from RAM. I am running SliTaz in a VirtualBox environment with 2GB of RAM for this review.

The Libreboot C201 from Minifree is really really really ridiculously open source

Open source laptops – ones not running any commercial software whatsoever – have been the holy grail for free software fans for years. Now, with the introduction of libreboot, a truly open source boot firmware, the dream is close to fruition. The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
