[News] Early Review of the New TinyMe 2008.0

Hash: SHA1

A Tiny Look at TinyMe 2008.0

,----[ Quote ]
| While we're all waiting for PCLOS 2008 to be released, we were treated to a 
| kissing cousin yesterday with the release of TinyMe 2008.0. It's a small 
| lightweight distro featuring the LXDE desktop with lots of handy apps. I 
| thought I'd take it for a little test run this evening to see what it might 
| be like.    



TinyMe 2008.0 Released!

,----[ Quote ]
| KDulcimer is glad to announce TinyMe 2008.0 "Final" has been released! TinyMe
| is a PCLinuxOS-based distribution, which is targeted at older computers and
| people who want a very light and fast desktop environment. Although TinyMe
| comes as a small, 200MB ISO, it provides tools for most all of your everyday
| wants and needs:
|     * AbiWord Word Processor
|     * Opera Web Browser
|     * Audacious Media Player
|     * GThumb Photo Viewer and Digital Camera application
|     * Asunder CD ripper
|     * Easy-to use Control Centers which make customizing your system and
|       desktop look 'n feel a snap.
|     * Sylpheed E-Mail Client
|     * ePDFView, a PDF Viewer
|     * SciTE text editor
|     * and even a couple of small games.



PCLOS TinyMe - Nothing Tiny With This Little Fella

,----[ Quote ]
| I am honestly pleased to give this package a 4 Pennie review. I have always
| shy'd away from the microdistro, affraid of wasting my time putting a system
| in place that really wouldn't meet my needs. I generally look at other
| distros, focusing on Enlightenment or XFCE so I am very pleased to know there
| is a openbox distro out there that runs on the tiniest of machines with
| enough horse power to even become a server if it wanted too. The power of
| PCLOS, combined with a package manager of Synaptic and a cute little control
| center to allow even the newest of the newbies a system they can manage makes
| this one hell of a package.        


ReviewLinux.Com: TinyME Packs a Big Punch

| TinyME Test 6 was announced today on Distrowatch.Com and we thought we would
| take a quick look at it. This little distro packs a big punch and we enjoyed
| the ride. Take a short look at our Flash Video of TinyME Linux based on the
| user friendly PCLinuxOS.  



TinyMe Test 5 released!

,----[ Quote ]
| The changes for test 5 are almost too numerous to mention. This will
| hopefully be our last test release before TinyMe Final.


TinyMe - The little distro that could

,----[ Quote ]
| This derivative version of PCLOS really is a tiny little gem that's slowly,
| but surely growing into a much bigger diamond.  I look forward to the
| eventual final release of this distribution in the near future.  


Mini Review of a Tiny PCLOS

,----[ Quote ]
| TinyMe is a scaled down version of PCLinuxOS 2007. The latest version
| is delivered as a 177 MB liveCD and features the Lightweight X11
| Desktop Enviroment, Synaptic, and the PCLinuxOS Control Center. It
| comes with a few applications, so it could be a really light version
| of PCLOS for older computers or a foundation on which to build your
| own system as you choose.


Distrowar: TinyME vs. Sidux

,----[ Quote ]
| Conclusion:
| For the first time ever in the history of distrowar, we have a tie. This only
| means that Sidux and TinyME may differ in strengths and weaknesses, but in
| the end, they are in the same way competent.  

Version: GnuPG v1.4.6 (GNU/Linux)
