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?

My thoughts initially, but I suppose someone looking for a slimmed-down distro (rather than configuring one themselves; Linux, BSD or otherwise) probably wouldn't have the patience to read the documentation for maintaining a BSD install, even though ports and pkg_foo are much simpler in essence.
