If you want old school basic Linux, then welcome to Snal!

About as minimal as you can get, but using nearly 2 GB of RAM for some reason.

I really don't see the point of this, when there are much better lightweight distros about with more features and that use a lot less RAM.

It doesn't boot particularly quickly either, which leaves me wondering if a rating of 3 is perhaps being a little too generous.

On the plus side..... well there is no plus side really, even the ISO is pretty large for such a minimalist distro

And the 'Snal' name next to an obviously snail graphic is both confusing and just plain wrong.

Apart from that I love it !
