Thus Elive never blocks, never has virus and never destroys your data due to unacceptable errors. An user called ‘Mikeat5000’ ran Elive for more than 500 days without reboot, one day his son hit the power button accidentally. You can do things like to write simple documents or make professional video editing, being multitasking you can launch any applications at the same time without blocking.

We wrote a list of the best lightweight Linux distros and we included 50+ distros. The extremely lighweight ones like BasicLinux are super-fun to experiment with. You should also check out some extremely lightweight Linux distros like Slax, BasicLinux (runs on 3MB RAM and a floppy disk) etc.
One example is that you will never found ads in Elive, your life is much more important than for lose your time annoyed by publicity. Elive has not planned obsolescence, we want to made it good, not to sell it. We enjoy making Elive, and because things made by pleasure are better than the ones made by an external incentive.
It falls in the same breed of distros that are designed to run from removable media itself, without installing it on on the hard drive. The total size of Puppy Linux distro is under 250MB, so you can easily put it on a CD. I put Puppy Linux on a 64GB USB stick for a laptop that doesn’t have a hard drive and it works great. Puppy Linux is one of the lightest lightweight distros. Since the removable media will also be used to store files and programs, you can put it on a DVD or a USB stick.
The problem is not only lightness, but some tricky issues as CPU internal instructions, applications language and code (large documents and internet home-pages) that require more than just the clock-cycles of a processor. I recently had problems with a quite fast Athlon XP processor that could handle many 32 bits distros, but not open Firefox or Chromium due to the lack of SSE2 instructions.
On the bright side, most multimedia distros have a stable, well-documented base like Debian and Ubuntu LTS releases, and you can use them even if they haven’t been.
OSMC, or Open Source Media Center, is a super lightweight iteration of Kodi. Several options are on offer, and we’re going to walk you through them now, looking at the features, advantages, and disadvantages of each. Running on Linux, OSMC benefits from massive repositories.

It’s a Debian-based distro available for the Raspberry Pi 3 Ways to Set Up Your Raspberry Pi as a Media Server 3 Ways to Set Up Your Raspberry Pi as a Media Server Which media center application should you install on your Raspberry Pi. The OSMC community offers regular updates to the operating system for this Kodi-based release. That makes OSMC truly embody the open source in its name.
Lubuntu comes with a decent set of applications pre-installed so you can start working as soon as you boot into Lubuntu. However, unlike Knoppix or Puppy Linux, it’s not designed to be used with removable media. While you can run and use Lubuntu with removable media, you are better off installing it on a hard drive.
Another reason I choose Lubuntu is LXDE’s future. The good news is that the Lubuntu community has started work on moving the distro to LXQt. LXDE and Razor Qt projects have decided to merge to create LXQt, wherein they will replace GTK components with Qt components.
Another is built around Ubuntu 14:04 LTS, called TahrPup. One, called Slacko Puppy is based upon SlackWare, which is one of the longest established Linux distributions. There are three different versions of Puppy. People continue to use it as their day-to-day operating system.
