Linux In the past year I've reviewed four lightweight Linuxes for OS News: VectorLinux, Puppy Linux, Lubuntu, and Damn Small Linux. This article compares the four distributions. I invite your comments in response: what are your own experiences with these and competing lightweight distros?

So my experience is that it is not worth it to watch out for especially slim distros like DSL and puppy, if you can just take a slim-by-design major distro like Archlinux.

Same hear. A build-your-own distro like Arch or Debian-businesscard is probably a better way to go for most people. They don't even require much experience, just the patience to read documentation.

I'd personally take Slitaz over Puppy or DSL/Tinycore if I was on the lookout for a ready-made slim distro, though.
