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?

To me Puppy, DSL are somewhat a mess. They're way too chaotic, unpleasant experience.
Vector is somewhere between being usable and messy, while Lubuntu is almost perfect here.
Of course, Lubuntu has its own drawbacks, but still it just beats crap out of the other ones when it comes to "user experience".

I like the fact Vector is based on Slackware, but to me Lubuntu seems to be more organized distro. I actually use it as my "make-a-backup-from" OS.
