Tiny Core Linux 11 – Super Lightweight for Old Systems

1 min read

Tiny Core Linux comes in 3 sizes – an 11MB, 16MB and 106MB ISO size. Its 32bit only and is a good candidate for very old computers. Although my preference is AntiX.
Tiny Core has a very limited software library.

  4. I have a atom netbook from the year 2008 which is ridiculously slow with any newer "lightweight" distro. For example. It takes 4+ seconds to open a terminal in those distros. So I will be trying this in the future and see if it is an improvement

  5. I tryed this new version of Tiny core ( full ) on my old 2010 Lenovo S10-3 netbook with a single core Atom and 2 Gb of ram ,, it worked but not that well , I didn`t like it …
