Wrong forum. Try Phoronix.

That's because Phoronix is a news site and, instead of using comment system, it uses forum (of course, any user can start a topic there). It is also the best benchmarking site focused on Linux. Michael Larabel, who runs the site, is widely known and respected in Linux world. You can trust them.  ;)

Aurel, do you use Telegram messenger? There are several Linux oriented Telegram groups. I can post some links, if you want.

I don't get what is that you want. You complain that 38 MB is to much, but then you're fine with... 370? If you need a small, fast, lightweight distro then go for Puppy that is 100 MB. I've been using it for ages. I know - there is this "always root" problem, but you're not going to use it as your main system, right?

I was talking about tinyCore which ISO is cca 15MB and when you add for example Midori browser
in ISO then jump over 30MB.
do you get it now?

Nope. You add something and the size increase. Shocking. Or do you expect a web browser to be 1 MB?

what is a difference between i486 and i586 version ?
can you answer on that ?

They are suitable for different architectures? https://vichhaiy.wordpress.com/2014/11/11/what-is-the-difference-between-i386-i486-i586-i686-i786

or i must ask on Porteus forum when i ask few times and never get proper answer. ::)

Wasn't that what you did on the first place?

Again the same problem. You take an obscure distro that is designed for specific use and then moan that Linux is crap. Just download something mainstream that has good documentation and community and you won't have to ask questions here.

In SliTaz cca 30MB iso is Firefox which work like a charm

Yes, and without Firefox SliTaz would be 15 MB.

well user must know how to use GParted or similar tool to prepere HDD for linux partition
and also must know how much to use for swap...etc..etc...

When was the last time you tried to install Linux. 1999? In 2019 every installer in any mainstream distro can take care of it.

i don't have time to babling with you about things you clearly don't know

For a moment I really believed you wanted to discuss Linux here. But no - it's just usual Aurel stuff. Moan about Linux, call Tomaaz a moron... It's neither funny or interesting anymore.

Despite of level of Aurel's "arguments", I decided to have a look at Porteus. ;) IMO, all you need to know is there. i586 is the newest 32bit version, there is also a guide how to install it. Porteus is design to run mainly from portable media. You can choose an option to run it entirely from RAM which, in theory, should be really fast.

Aurel, you really should try to install it on USB stick. The easiest way would be to use Rufus to create bootable drive. Of course there is all that UEFI/Secure Boot stuff, but I'm sure you know how to deal with it. So, try it, but if you don't like it then have a look at this beauty. Go for Upup Bionic and enjoy fully featured distro that looks really good (much better than the original Puppy) and, from USB stick, runs faster than anything else.

EDIT If you decide to try LxPup, you can always ask me for help. I can show you how to quickly change the look of it or to install/uninstall applications.
