Have just got hold of an aging laptop that previously ran Windows Vista and i am thinking of installing Slitaz. The only problem is that i don't know which version to try out, New Slitaz Cooking or Slitaz 4.0?

 

Would welcome any help and advice. Thanks!

First off, if your comp was originally purchased with Vista installed, then it should have no problem as far as minimum hardware requirements to

run all Linux distros. BUT....you should always make a LIVE CD, DVD or flash drive to find if your hardware and you are compatible first. Using LIVE

will not make any changes to your computer. Just slower than using installed.

 

To save others a bit a time who are not familiar with Slitaz...such as me....

QUOTE from Distro Watch:  SliTaz GNU/Linux is a mini distribution and live CD designed to run speedily on hardware with 256 MB of RAM. SliTaz uses BusyBox, a recent Linux kernel and GNU software. It boots with Syslinux and provides more than 200 Linux commands, the lighttpd web server, SQLite database, rescue tools, IRC client, SSH client and server powered by Dropbear, X window system, JWM (Joe's Window Manager), gFTP, Geany IDE, Mozilla Firefox, AlsaPlayer, GParted, a sound file editor and more. The SliTaz ISO image fits on a less than 30 MB media and takes just 80 MB of hard disk space.
