Small live CD, Very fast, Can grow the way you want
Some add ons do not work
Damn Small linux has improved greatly with the latest version. It is small and fast to load on a new PC and will work even in older oones. It is using basically the Knoppix hardware detection now and this is great, as we all now.
The "desktop" is based on the Fluxbox window manager. It looks really nice wiith icons. The programs that are included are all small ((obviously) but very nice! Firefox is the browser, there is a neat file manager, Siag spreadsheet, nice small wordprocessor, graphic viewers. mail program and monkey web server.
But the greatest thing about it is not realised by a lot of people.
You can use the rest of the CDs 650MB or so to add exactly what you want!
Rox filer?, GIMP? CinePaint? Mplayer, Xine?
Choose if you want them to be available by default or only when you need it and on a PC which can run it......
Add them to the CDRW or CDR which was writen for multisession and not closed. Add and burn. Add and burn....
Damn Sizzling Live CD.
