    TinyMe is a lightweight Unity-Linux based operating system. Please don’t associate it with the wonderful,stable and superior PCLinuxOS.

    I just installed TinyMe 2010 Acorn Rc-1b on a 10+ year old Compaq 1692 laptop with a k6-2 433 mhz cpu and 192M RAM. It has very good hardware detection and recognized and started the PCMCIA card based Ethernet automatically. Getting my Netgear WG111T wifi dongle going was a bit more challenging but it is now working as well (it requires loading two windows drivers via ndiswrapper). Everything else seems to be working fine. With Midori running, I am using 55/192 M and 18% of CPU capacity.

    The included apps are minimalist but the Midori browser is surprisingly good and much faster than firefox or seamonkey while giving much better rendering than Dillo. Abiword is just fine for a light word processor and the PCMan File Manager is quite adequate for most purposes. In general, the look and feel is much more polished than some of the small distros and the hardware detection is better.

    The simple fact is that TinyMe is now part of Unity Linux.

    On the technical side, there should be some very notable improvements for older computers from the new TinyMe over previous releases. The combination of synaptic/apt-get is painful slow compared to smart package manager. Also the payload of the rpms being compressed with xz should have a two-fold benefit over bz2 compressed rpms. First in pure size of the packages, but second in the time it takes to decompress with xz is faster.

    Note that before the final is released, there will be some notable improvements in the livecd boot time and hardware detection due to recent changes to mklivecd.

    Thanks for the complete review on Tinyme! Very nice read.

    I strictly recommend not to hold back until you get enough amount of money to buy goods! You should just get the home loans or just secured loan and feel yourself fine
