You have also SliTaz
. A very interesting distro... and now it has got a GTK+ package manager.
Read on SliTaz's mailing list
Tazpkg has been updated to 2.1, the package [manager] provides now a graphical user interface, so you can install, remove, search or upgrade packages in a few clicks. After upgrade you will find a new entry in [the] "System Tools" menu. The main window will display the list of installed packages, just double-click on a packages line to get infos and actions. All feedback are really welcome.
"I *suppose* that the actual releases (1.0) are more like reference points; currently, running "cooking" (which is current"/"testing") is much more interesting that sticking with 1.0."
It is still young IMHO, and experimental, and funny, and interesting but it seems we will have a new winner in town sometime in the (near) future...
You can see e.g here
for a review:
Now here it is SliTaz 1.0 from the LiveCD, with Firefox opened (3 tabs), an xterm, jwm + lxpanel; note that SliTaz starts by default lighttpd and php-cgi (8 processes): LiveCD with Firefox: 66-67 MB of RAM occupied
As it's very simple to install it, here's the memory usage on the installed system, before starting any Firefox: 28 MB!
See SliTaz is getting much better (I guess)
for a tiny little update...
