After recently installing the Debian based edition of Linux Mint operating system on my home office desktop, I decided to take a look at another Debian based Linux distribution, SolusOS.
This is my first time trying SolusOS, so I dived in with an innocent fresh mind. Upon booting the LiveCD, I couldn’t help but notice how fast the SolusOS boot process is. Whether it has been tweaked by the developers or whether it is due the lightweight nature of the distribution, I’m not too sure.
There is something that bothers me; The SolusOS ISO size comes in at just over 1GB. It’s rather big in comparison to mainstream distributions like Ubuntu and Fedora, yet I have no idea why as package selection for SolusOS is nothing unusual.
