Solid State Ubuntu

| Note how my option to install Ubuntu to the USB flash drive is not the 
| fastest. Slax performed faster, even with the gzip de-compression. This would 
| probably be due to its extremely minimal philosophy, plus it was running on a 
| slightly faster USB flash drive. But running Ubuntu, not compressed (as 
| described above), is the still best longer-term choice (albeit a bit slower)! 
| This is because with Ubuntu you get all the convenience and "upgradability" 
| that you won't ever get from Slax 5.1.8. Slax 5.1.8 is about to “go stale”, 
| and you wouldn't want Slax 6 in this situation due to the LZMA compression.

| 2007 may well be the year of the small distro.


Performance Duel: Koolu 500 MHz vs. Pentium III 666 MHz

| We also use Ubuntu in our Monastery office. If you read the minimal 
| specifications for Ubuntu Fiesty Fawn, it states you need at least a 500 MHz 
| machine. We are interested in using computers that are low power, so a 
| modern, general-purpose Operating System that has such modest requirements 
| suits us fine, as it will run on older, less power-hungry computers.
