Slitaz Linux Review

Slitaz 2 Review


Small is powerful



How minimal do you think a complete GUI-based operating system size can be? I thought it has to be around 500-700Mb before I came to know about the smallest of small linux distros. The main contenders are DSL, puppy, slitaz and a few more. SliTaz 2.0 is a powerful distro(operating system) in just about 30MB. Its the best mini distro i've tried so far. It offers clean looks and solid apps with no compromise in usability.

Good:
1. Slim yet powerful File manager.
2. Firefox included in a 30mb distro!!
3. Grub install option.
4. Robust inbuilt system tools and utilities.(best feature)
5. Working Desktop effects!
6. Autologin/multiple accounts feature.
7. Perfectly working GUI-based package manager.

Bad:

1. Window manager crashes sometimes.(unlikely)
2. Absence of word/excel/presentations processor.(who needs those when we have google docs)
