Small Linux distros: Puppy, SLAX and DSL

Filed under
Linux

Linux is really a great operating system, and probably none of you would argue with such opinion. Its features are almost endless, and with little effort and skills you can perform just any task using this OS. The times when one couldn’t fully use multimedia, do sophisticated text-editing or graphics on Linux are far in the past. But the question is, what can we do when we have a really old computer? And what about the situation when our system suddenly starts to behave quite strange and we are forced to rescue our data from the hard drive? Special rescue discs might be used in such situation, or… a Linux Live CD.

There are lots of live CD/DVDs. Let us imagine a perfect full of features rescue system. Well, it should use little RAM memory, it should be able to read different filesystems, e.g. NTFS, and of course it should be damn small — to fit in every pocket. No reason to imagine! Nowadays the so called mini-distros have all the mentioned features. This article presents the leading distros of this type: Puppy Linux, Slax and Damn Small Linux.
