Damn Small Linux: Still Damn Fun

Filed under
Linux

Damn Small Linux or DSL was released in 2003 to create a Linux operating system for older hardware. It's based on Knoppix/Debian technology. While your mileage may vary, the basic DSL system requirements are:

486 or better processor
8 M memory for the command line inteface (16 M recommended)
16 M memory for the graphical user interface (24 M recommended)
The DSL download is 50 M

DSL's targeted "sweet spot" is:

High-end 486's
Pentium I's
Pentium I MMX's
Low-end Pentium II's
