SliTaz GNU/Linux is a light-weight, community-based Linux distribution suitable for use on older hardware or as a Live CD or Live USB.[3][4][5][6]

System requirements[edit]

SliTaz GNU/Linux is supported on all machines based on the i486 or x86 Intel compatible processors.[2] The Live CD has four variants of SliTaz, requiring from 192 MB of RAM for the Core system to 48 MB for a text mode and X Window System.[2] SliTaz can even run in 16 megabytes of RAM and a little swap memory. [7] SliTaz can be booted from a Live CD, Live USB, floppy disk, or a local area network,[8] or can be installed, requiring approximately 100 MB of hard disk space.[9]
