Slackware, Slax I chose Minislack because of the low requirements (running fine on my Pentium II - 400 MHz with 256 Mb RAM, 32 Mb swap, on a 1.5 Gb harddrive partition - I recommend 2 Gb, though).

low requirements?
by g on Tue 14th Jun 2005 10:31 UTC

I have a machine with p2 233 128+64 MB ram multibooting XP (yes, you can disable hw check) and Suse 9.2
It's enough fast to be usable for desktop productivity under both systems, and yes, under Linux runs KDE, being more coherent and complete than minor desktop environments for Linux. Before of Suse it was running Slack X (with KDE) and was even more responsive.
Why shoud be considered "low requirement" a system with a nearly twice as faster cpu and more ram, needing a "special" distribution?
