Would also agree that Amigo is best when sleek as a small-sized distro, with the added option to compile extensions making it a mid-size distro as required/needed. This user really appreciates the AmigoLinux Developer's choice of size-ranges and logic behind these size-reqs, from the Minimal Installs to the mid-sized Amigo 2.0 w/ extensions (see documentation at http://www.amigolinux.org
IMHO, hope that this very useful flexibility will continue to be refined and improved upon as intended.
FYI, there actually does exist a mid-sized and fully-extensible Slackware distro besides Vector Linux mentioned above. SLAX (http://slax.linux-live.org/
) is a bootable live-CD that is itself compressed into less than 190MB disk space on a CD.
SLAX is not as easy to install onto a hdd as Amigo Linux and its memory requirements are indeed higher than Amigo Linux; it takes
30 MB to boot slax.
64 MB to run Xwindow with fluxbox (guifast)
128 MB to run Xwindow with KDE (gui or guisafe)
vs. 16MB RAM for AmigoLinux
SLAX does, though, have optional extensions to improve the functionality/productivity of the distro to make it more mid-sized similar to AmigoLinux 2.0 SLAX terms these extensions "modules" (see http://slax.linux-live.org/modules.php
for the list of these) Eventually, SLAX too may offer a hdd-install like AmigoLinux (maybe similar to the liveCD hdd-install options for DamnSmallLinux and Knoppix)
