Pros: Good on old machines
Cons: Seems to have got stuck in the past

Whilst this distro was one of the first lightweight live installable distros, it has become stuck in the past, nothing new since 2012. It still works, but trying to get security updates seems unlikely. I would leave this distro to the history books.

There are better more modern lightweight distros out there now, such as SliTaz, which I like.

Pros: You can run this on a potato
Cons: This distro is not updatet anymore

Any hacker could enjoy this. You should not install this. only explore it on a Virtual Machine.
