h3%5kr3w Posted May 31, 2009 Share Posted May 31, 2009 SliTaz (Super LIght Temporary Autonomous Zone) - Wicked ass linux distro weighing in @ 28mb (full compressed ver.), turns into about 96mb in memory, AND packs a nice light interface (openbox). It looks great, runs great, is uberfast, and would be a great distro if your looking for a lightweight linux base distro to build your own hacking distro. The reason why I'm telling you all this is because I checked it out and I REALLY like it. Darren should check it out too. I know about half of you are saying right now, why do I want this when I can just go get backtrack? Well... reason why is compatibility and speed. Put it to you this way. The reason why I tried it is to run it as a web server on an old trash machine I got off someone (700mhz amd w/128mb, 10gig hdd (scrapped that one and put in my old 40 gig). It actually boots faster on this machine than my Linux Mint install on my regular desktop (2.8 ghz AMD 5600+ 2gig ram, 1Tb WDGreen hdd). So maybe this will help some of the po-folk white/grey-hats out there that has an old laptop laying around with a wifi card in it. I don't like puppy linux because they seemed to just want to jam pack as much crap as they could into a tiny distro. This sounds good, but it looks like crap, and I noticed the hardware compatibility of Puppy just isnt that good. (but I aint hatin' on you folks that likes puppy though) I'm just saying check it out and see what you think. Only real downside is it's mainly a German distro, but that's not much of a problem either because they have an English forum as well. here's a link and a pic. w00t! http://slitaz.org/ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
