I have no dedicated net connection (slow only aka PSTN dial up max 56 Kbps ) but I use Linux for my home PC (233MHz, 32 ram, USB port, BW Monitor 12", onboard VGA, SC, LAN and ISA Card Rockwell modem identified as external modem). I use DSL 1.3 installed on 1 GB HDD. And got abiword.dsl for writing. But fail when use gnumeric.dsl.
I was happy when DSL-n came. I try DSL-n 0.01n2. But there was some apps broken when running. These was my opinion about DSL-n to be "Powerful Low-End/Portable Desktop/Workstation OS" :
Fit DSL-n under 100MB -so 128 MB UFD enough-. And [b]ADD[/b] DSL-n with these apps :
1. XAMPP (making website devel easier),
2. Bluefish (powerful)
3. Dillo (fast n nice)
4. wvdial (wvdial.dsl was broken? I have try it on DSL 1.3 but always fail to dial my ISP, when using wvdial in [b]feather linux[/b], success! How about DSL-n? ppp not simple for newbie. Me & my friends were newbies)
5. Help/Manual for Apps that included on DSL-n.
6. HTTrack (Website Copier –reading sites offline). I heard rsync can do it too. Was it true?
7. Knoppix terminal server/LTSP, provide apps for old Diskless PCs.
or, if the developers do not want to do that, please fit those apps above on one .dsl/.uci, so all Linux newbie can add, trial and use to learn Linux more, especially DSL-n, with productivity apps !
