Based on some recommendations from those commenting to my previous entry…I will attempt a few more distros on my old PII 350 MHz PC…using the XFCE Desktop of course. I’ll attempt to get the latest and greatest XFCE up and running.
Those that I’ve received feedback on are:
- STX Linux
- DSL – Damn Small Linux
- Puppy Linux
- Debian Unstable (for XFCE cutting edge)
- PCLinuxOS – Second attempt after remaster (because it is my favorite )
So, I’ll give those a go during the next week or two and we’ll see how they stack up. I’m looking forward to STX since it is slackware based and has many features (thanks for pointing it out srlinuxx!!). Check it out in a review at Tuxmachines.org.
I’m also looking forward to Kanotix because I’ve heard good things about this distro. We’ll see where everything stacks up in a few weeks. Stay tuned. And if anyone has any more suggestions for distros to try, let me know…I’m all for trying out even more…I normally am testing something out and testing Linux on a PII 350 is challenging and fun.
Keep in mind that I’ll be attempting to get XFCE (my choice of minimalistic desktop…if I can’t have XFCE, the distro isn’t worth it for me) on each distro. If anyone would like to assist me with the distros listed above with pointers for XFCE, drop a line in the forum on this thread. Thanks for your help!
