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?

Just moved from Ubuntu to Lubuntu using
http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/purelubuntu
on yesterday and so far I like it. Less CPU fan, same usability, and same programs available. Although so far I've only installed Firefox.

I'd suggest users who left Firefox more than 6 months ago in favor of Chrome that retry Firefox now. It has received many sensible optimizations at different levels since then: more UI speed, less disk load time, less memory usage, more resistance against problematic extensions, etc.
