If you have a low end computer with limited hard disk space, RAM, and a slow processor? Well your only answer is: Damn Small Linux!
What is Damn Small Linux? Well, the name says it all. It’s a linux distro. that’s… well, damn small. The entire OS image is only 50 MB, and you can boot off a USB drive. (If your computer doesn’t support booting off a USB, then don’t worry, they have a floppy image that enables you to boot of your USB drive.) The bare minimum system requirements are only a 486 processor and 8 MB of RAM. That really is damn small! It can also be run within Windows using Virtual PC.
