Twelve years after the last test version and 16 years after the formation of the last stable release, Damn Small Linux 2024 (https://www.damnsmalllinux.org/) has been published. It is intended for use on low-power systems and obsolete hardware. The new release has alpha quality and is prepared in builds for the i386 architecture. The size of the bootable build is 665 MB (for comparison, the last version was 50 MB).

The build is based on the AntiX 23 Live distribution and offers a choice of environments based on the Fluxbox and JWM window managers. Three web-browsers are included: BadWolf, Dillo and Links2.

A set of office applications is formed by text editor AbiWord, table processor Gnumeric, e-mail client Sylpheed and PDF viewer Zathura. For multimedia content, MPV and XMMS are included. The distribution also includes the mtPaint graphic editor, the zzzFM file manager, the gFTP/SFTP client, and the Leafpad text editor.

Among console applications: file manager Ranger, table processor VisiData, terminal multiplexer Tmux, mail client Mutt, music player Cmus, CD/DVD burning program CDW, search system SurfRaw, text editors Vim and Nano, browsers W3M and Links2.
