Very interesting and incredibly lightweight OS for old desktops, ancient Atom netbooks and various dilapidated machines. It resembles Puppy Linux being actually completely different from Puppy distros.

I have tested it on my old Sony Vaio netbook [Intel Atom, 2GB RAM]. KolibriOS starts in about 10 seconds from USB flash drive, providing the full-fledged system. Don't await too much - it is retro-oriented, for example, it includes a bunch of retro games' emulators: DosBox + FCE Ultra + ScummVM and etc.

Anyway, it is worth of trying: ISO is just 64MB, it takes about 2 minutes to burn via Rufus.
