Version Cooking

SliTaz is a highly lightweight Linux Distribution designed for booting off live CD’s and live USB’s. Its small size makes it embeddable into your computers RAM, making it our lightweight distribution of choice. Setting up a Live CD or Floppy boot is exceptionally easy and requires basic ISO and IMG burning software; however the setup on Live USB’s requires additional software such as UNetBootin, or the SliTaz USB burner. These can be downloaded on the website, and are easy to use. One note when burning to USB; it will format the USB drive. SliTaz is perfect to carry round on a USB or CD, as it is less than 100mb when installed with multiple programs. SliTaz features an intuitive settings and repository management program known as the TazPanel. This piece of preinstalled software amalgamates the editing and downloading functionality of other Distributions into one highly useable program. It is for these reasons above, we give SliTaz The following ratings.

Usability: 8/10
Size: 9/10
Performance: 7/10
Overall: 8/10
