    Damn Minuscule Linux: A First Look At SliTaz 1.0

    | But if you’ve an old laptop gathering dust under your desk, and you’re
    | looking for an interesting, fun project SliTaz is a great choice.
    | There’s a solid base to it, with well-chosen default software and a
    | reasonable downloadable selection to complement it, all wrapped up in a
    | mini-marvel of a distro.
    | Give SliTaz a try – you won’t be disappointed, and its cleverness will make
    | you smile. And that’s a promise!

    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! * * *

    A quick look over SliTaz 1.0

    | 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. * * *

    Thanks Roy - I downloaded and fired up the 25Mb distro.
    After a big pregnant pause, and some questions later,
    the distro booted into 1280x1024 resolution orange background desktop
    in qemu. Fantastic. It had firefox and it could open other virtual
    drives. Just amazing for a 25Mb distro!

    Creepy. Was that blood all over you?

    Yeah, really amazing. You stealthy bastard, you are thanking Roy for his
    microscopic dick and shading it out with 25Mb instead of 0.25 mm?

    7: I am pregnant thanks to Roy Schestowitz. Congratulate us everyone in
    COLA. I will share pictures of Roy, myself and our retarded junior with
    you all in COLA.
