Hello Off-Topic friends,

As of right now I'm looking for gnu/L distros that I may install one on my laptops and desktop. I'm looking for somethingalong the lines in size of about 700MB and that uses KDE, although the foot is acceptable. I wanted to use Open Suse but it's 4gigs big for the latest build.

Any open/free software enthusiast mind giving me a hint on what you're using at the moment?

If you take any distro and compile it yourself, only the support needed for your hardware is included in the kernel, and you get a much smaller footprint, less than 1 gig often much smaller.

If you have a laptop, search for Linux on your brand of laptop. You might get lucky an someone else made a distro or a guide for rolling your own hardware specific version.

Compiling is not that much harder than following a an ordinary install guide.

If you ever used the tools for creating embedded windows distros, the method is quite simmilar.

Compile my own? Little too technical fro me.

I may go with slax if I don't end up using a puppy/tiny linux type distro.

I like your idea best Stand.

I might go with XFCE being small as it is, or maybe some other small not very looksy Gnome distro. Like mandriva.

Mandriva is kinda down the drain right now, you might wanna go to Mageia fork (which is basically the whole Mandriva team under a different name).
https://www.mageia.org/en/downloads/

There are available both Gnome or KDE LiveCDs 670 MB in size and also a minimal (dualarch) LXDE.
Those two LiveCD include some proprietary WIFI and video drivers making the installation a bit easier.

Kubuntu is about 930MB for the iso. http://www.kubuntu.org/

Concerned that blockchain bloat will lead to centralization? Storing less than 4 GB of data once required the budget of a superpower and a warehouse full of punched cards. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/87/IBM_card_storage.NARA.jpg https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punched_card

Thing is, it very much depends on what do you need it for.
A small help to choose although a bit old (2011), it could still at least give a small idea: http://www.zegeniestudios.net/ldc/index.php?select_lang=true

What is this heretical suggestion! The mere mention of which leaves a bad taste in my mouth!

As a follower of Richard the Stallman I will have none of this!
