What to download today?


Hey all,

What to download today? That's the question I pose to you?

I want to download something good....like a distro....maybe.

I have RH7.0, RH7.1, RH7.3, RH8, RH9, SuSE 8.2, Debian, Slackware, Lycoris, and Peanut...

Hmm...

What to do with my T1 today

Well, if you got a T1 line don't be a scumbag (in a good sence of the word - don't take it personal) and share what you got. http://bitconjurer.org/BitTorrent/download.html, well that's at least what I'd do if I had bandwidth to spare .

titanium_geek,

It's a super small install of linux that is pretty dang good.

http://www.ibiblio.org/peanut/ <------look here

I used to use it on old boxes that didn't support much and didn't have a lot of RAM or HD space

Try a version of Debian GNU/HURD, a "complete" (almost) OS that combines DEBIAN with the famous GNU/HURD.
This is still in beta, but hey, still good to see what they're up to:

Perhaps you could give something else a try? Darwin for x86? Debian hurd?

<edit>
D'oh! Just noticed the previous mention of hurd. Hey ho. QNX perhaps? xBSD? There are any number of choices.

If we all could be so lucky.....

Have you tried any of the zero-footprint Distros, like Knoppix? The only other distro I can think of that hasn't been mentioned is College Linux (I think that's what it is called).
