Quite a lot, apparently.
Yes, that’s Slitaz again, and I know I’ve mentioned it before, but I’m thrilled with it for a couple of new reasons — mostly because it can play mp3s now, which I missed before.
I also want to see if I can rig it to use the persistent home feature on an external drive, and maybe configure my bootloader to jump to the ISO rather than my DVD drive. That should be fun.😈
The other reasons I dig it are mostly software additions here and there — there’s a full software list on the home page. But the general idea is what impresses me too — here’s a full-featured, working graphical distro in less than (about) half the space of DSL. And I can get online, run a sharp and clean desktop at 1600x1200x16, and listen to music while I surf.
If you have a hard-drive-less machine or need something to commandeer a public computer, this is probably a great option. The ISO will fit on a mini-CD, and there’s support for multiple keysets and several languages.
This has definitely supplanted DSL for me — it’s smaller, faster and better looking, and the forums appear to be quite friendly. I’m burning this one permanently, which means it gets to join Arch and Ubuntu on real CDs and not just my old CDRW.😉
