Slim and sleek Linux distro
In a world of multi-gigabyte Linux distributions, it's refreshing to see lightweight distributions like Puppy Linux and Damn Small Linux. But even these distributions look fat next to SliTaz.
The tiny SliTaz  Linux distribution weighs in at less than 30MB, but it packs a graphical desktop environment and an amazing array of applications. Similar to Puppy Linux, SliTaz loads entirely to RAM, so it runs blazingly fast even on older hardware. Because SliTaz is a Live CD Linux distribution, getting it running on your machine is a breeze. Before you do that, however, you have to choose which version of SliTaz you want to run.
Stable and Cooking
SliTaz is available in two versions: stable and cooking. As you might have guessed, the former has been fully tested and includes stable packages, whereas the latter contains bleeding-edge kernel, features, and software.
After choosing the version you like, you can download the appropriate .iso image, burn it on a CD, and then boot your machine from it.
