Lean Debian derivative Semplice Linux

Conclusions

The version 6 of Semplice Linux created a surprisingly robust impression. The system is fast, stable, and visually state-of-the-art. The integration of graphical management tools also makes it a good choice for newcomers. Certain graphics cards without hardware acceleration did cause problems in the Oneslip web viewer.

All told, though, the system is perfectly suited for older or low-end hardware that is no longer suitable for major-league Linux distributions.
