What's the best Linux os that can be run on a PC with only 256mb of ram.? Answered


I came here to say DSL as steve did, if you want something a big bigger I recommend puppy or slax (I tend to favor slax a bit more).

I want to install it on my hardrive but the problem is that I have a very small amount of ram in a fairly capable computer.

Xubuntu or Kubuntu is a good choice then. Just keep the number of processes running down.
