Tiny core linux

Postby roid on Thu Feb 04, 2010 10:09 am

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 :P

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.
