TINY Linux distro

Postby MagnusB » Mon Mar 31, 2008 10:41 am

It is finally here, SliTaz, a 24MB ISO, using BusyBox. Seems like a decent alternative to DSL and Puppy.
Another one I looked at was Ubuntulite, which seems to run on a processor well below 100 MHz, but I can't seem to find the system requirements again :( All this seems like good news for legacy hardware.

Magnus,

Thanks for the tip kind sir. :-)

If anyone can find the system requirements for Ubuntulite, please provide a link. I seem to remember around 30 MHz, but I can't confirm it...

I finally found Ubuntulite's system requirements:
Linux Wiki wrote:Ubuntulite should run well on a Pentium (75 MHz), equivalent or better, with 32 MB or more RAM.
