Exploring the extra tiny KolibriOS

Conclusions

KolibriOS is particularly impressive thanks to its fantastic speed that even outshines minimalistic Linux derivatives such as SliTaz. The system pleases with its modest hardware requirements.

With its many preinstalled emulators, KolibriOS is a good choice for gamers who have a soft spot for older game consoles or DOS games. However, as a conventional desktop system, KolibriOS is only suitable for a limited number of applications, such as a word processor or web browser.
