Gentoo 2008.0 Beta LiveCD

,----[ Quote ]
| Gentoo 2008.0 Beta 1 has been released. This is no April Fools' Day joke,
| it's really here. The Gentoo Foundation has had its share of problems as of
| late, there was never a Gentoo 2007.1 release, and this first beta is coming
| a bit late, but Gentoo 2008.0 Beta 1 is now available. We have some
| screenshots up of the Gentoo 2008.0 Beta 1 i686 LiveCD.

SliTaz 1.0 on 450Mhz K6-2, 256Mb

| This is easily my favorite live CD now. I admire DSL for being versatile and
| fast, and I do like the way Puppy Linux has evolved. But it’s hard to beat a
| pretty, usable, complete system that ducks under the 25Mb mark, and does it
| so well. Fatter distributions (and I’m thinking of Xubuntu, et al., here)
| would do well to notice how much can be done with so little.


First look at SliTaz GNU/Linux 1.0, the smallest desktop distro on earth

,----[ Quote ]
| I haven't been this impressed with a new Linux distribution for a long time.
| A compact package with basic applications, a web server and web development
| tools, an excellent package manager, remastering utilities and good
| auto-configuration scripts - all in a 25 MB download. What more can one need?
| While SliTaz GNU/Linux is unlikely to satisfy every user's needs, the project
| is a great testament to the old saying that good things come in a small
| package. It is also a tribute to the infinite versatility of Linux and free
| software. Give SliTaz a try, you will like it! * * *

| The bottom line? I liked SliTaz for its extremely low system requirements,
| and I particularly liked the package manager. *

SliTaz GNU/Linux, the Smallest “Desktop” Distro Ever Created

,----[ Quote ]
| “At 25 MB, it has to be the smallest desktop distro ever created”. These were
| the words of Ladislav Bodnar in the most recent issue of Distrowatch Weekly
| when he announced this fresh and minuscule distribution as a new addition to
| the waiting list. Its name is SliTaz, and I was so intrigued about it that I
| tried it out. * *

| After having extensively used SliTaz GNU/Linux 1.0, I can honestly say that
| it is a highly capable distro with a bright future ahead. It is ideal for
| rescuing a broken system, and even for full desktop usage especially when
| employed on older computer machines since it is fast and ultra-lightweight. I
| just hope that those minor bugs that I’ve encountered will be fixed by the
| next release version. Despite those slight troubles, I’m keeping my SliTaz
| GNU/Linux LiveCD just in case. DSL should watch out, because this new distro
| on the block is surely here to stay. * * *
