I agree with the comments about the "review" being mostly useless and uneducated. You can't do a proper review of *any* distro, especially a mini distro, if you focus on looks and on how much has been "upgraded" since the last release.
The reviewer paints the biggest advantage of DSL (support for very old hardware) as if it were a disadvantage, and merely writes it off as obsolete.
While other small distros are "improving" by upgrading to bigger software packages and newer kernels, they are leaving behind the hardware that DSL continues to support. As long as that hardware has a use, DSL will have a use, and will continue to be the only distro that will work on those machines. The reviewer seems to see this as a flaw rather than understanding that it is one of DSL's primary goals, and therefore he is not qualified to make a fair comparison of it to the other distros.
