Lightweight Linux distros
« on: July 04, 2017, 05:31:28 pm »

We have this list of the best Lightweight Linux distros. And we included VectorLinux in our Bonus list

Any other recommendations? Any feedback on our list? What do you use on your old hardware?

Glad so see you find our distro. The information on your list is a little outdated though, those specs are for version 7.0, released in 2012.

Current versions (7.2 should be finalized in a few weeks) require 256M of RAM, 5G of disk space, and a PAE capable CPU.

Of course I run VL Light on my older computers, that what it's for.  ;)
