Distrowatch - What is a good Linux distro for older hardware?

Oct 26, 2009 - To the question "What distribution would you recommend for older, low-specification hardware?", Jesse Smith lists, from large to small:
  1. Slax
  2. Puppy
  3. Damn Small
Jesse added: "Puppy Linux is a really easy-to-use mini-Linux which does a fine job of balancing performance with ease of use. Chances are if you're new to Linux in general, the user interface of Puppy will put you at ease. I used to shy away from recommending this distro because it didn't really handle multiple user accounts, but I understand this has been improved upon recently."
