Damn Small Linux 4.4, the versatile mini desktop Linux distribution, was announced today by its maintainer, Robert Shingledecker. This new version introduces a few important fixes, some software updates and a handful of modifications. Let’s find out about the new stuff first! For some extra performance, DSL 4.4 comes with a refactored Lua/Fltk, a new file diff GUI viewer called fldiff, a low resource theme & background, a new font (smoothansi) that is now used in the JWM menu and, as a bonus, the C/C++ programs can benefit from the Fltk library.

They have information and tools to easily make various distros bootable on a thumb drive. Their own distro is mandriva-based and can easily save files to the thumb drive that it is installed on. KDE + compiz too!

not a big mandriva fan, but they did all the work for you. Can't complain.

Unfortunately the computers at my university all have the bios locked, so you can't boot off of a thumb drive. I've tried.


oh yeah, Damn Small- one of my favorites for old machines. New releases = good.
