Chat about Linux in general
while looking on distrowatch I came across this http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=tinycore
I was wondering what peoples opinions where on this tiny little operating system, also I was wondering if there was anything out there smaller.
Intel Atom 1.6Ghz N270 Processor, 1GB Ram, 160GB storage. Not much to brag about

I've played with it some, as you can imagine it's so small that if you need a function you'll have to D/L the packages needed to make the particular function work and then it's not so tiny anymore. It's great if you want to build a bare minimum setup, sorta like a Arch setup in a way.

I prefer Slitaz to be honest, if not simply because it comes with a few programs pre-intstalled. 3.0 should be out in the 'spring', with Xorg, Openbox and 'everything' else a normal distro has under 35MB.
