I want to be able to develop applications using C and C++  HuhCan I do that with the DSL OS? My laptop doesn't meet the hardware requirements for the newest version of Linux or its flavors.

Sure, why wouldn't you?

Just remember that DSL uses the old 2.4 kernel. This means you might have not be able to run new software designed for later kernel versions. If you want to use the latest version of a modern IDE, definately check whether it, and its dependancies, would run with a 2.4 kernel.

If it won't work, DSL-N uses kernel v2.6. Then there are always other options like TinyCore and Puppy Linux which use much more modern kernels.

Thanks for responding CNK!

Have you worked with C or C++ using DSL?

No, I've never tried.

But good luck, whatever you go for.
