Upbeat Cynicism

what do you mean i lost my mind?

Even more low-end Linux options

leave a comment »

I’m in the process of putting together a Linux recommendation post (or possibly two, since the two people who would benefit directly have completely different needs), but for the moment, two more low-end distributions have come into being, which I noticed through DistroWatch Weekly.

First up is Fedora 8 XFCE Spin, which is apparently out of beta and ready to rock and roll.

Then there’s a new flavor of Vector Linux. Vector is already low-end friendly, so the new VectorLinux Light should be making lazaruses (lazari?) of even older computers on a regular basis. It’s in beta, but sounds like it will be going to release pretty soon. ((Then again, the Vector team doesn’t release anything until they’re damn sure it’s ready.)) The software selections mentioned in that post seem a bit odd (Opera, but no Firefox? I didn’t think Opera was any more resource-friendly, myself), but Vector is usually a solid distribution.
