Pros: Small Download. VERY VERY VERY quick install. works quite well.
Cons: No games!!!! Lack of EASY way to customize windowmanagers



Delilinux 0.5 is a great distro to save that old computer...its also great for dial-up users only 90MB they could download it over night. The install litterally takes about 10 minutes if you know how to (i am writing an install guide for the site...so hopefully it will be even quicker for people after that). it is a beta distro and sometimes it starts X kinda goofy and i have to restart...but it boots very very fast too. Im usin it on a computer that used to be win98 and it boots twice as fast and doesn't freeze randomly so that is good. I successfully installed Open Office on this distro although the Siag office is very good too. I've also installed the Java Development kit. It is basically slack 7.1 on less disk space so you can install things you need and spend less time downloading things you don't. KDE and GNOME could both be installed but are not included. as I said there are no games lol. I suppose you could always download some thoe ;-P. Well this distro is just a lifesaver...I can't get over how it turned two of my old computers into machines that are now more reliable and faster than my 1GHz XP machine! I recommend it to anyone with a low end computer. i used it on a 233 MH Pentium MMX 64MB ram and a 486DX2 66 MHz 16 MB RAM without any problems other than the goofy x windows sometimes. great distro.
