Have an old, small flash drive laying around? Here’s a Linux distro that can fit in even the smallest storage.
While most geeks rely on DSL to get a quick Linux fix from a flash drive or Live CD, we’ve come across an even lighter distro. Tiny Core Linux is a very lightweight distro based on Linux 2.6 kernel, Busybox, Tiny X, and Fltk, and it only takes up 11 Mb. You won’t want to use it for your standard desktop OS, but it’s a great option to keep on any sized flash drive, even one so small you couldn’t find any other use for. And you can install more apps from any repository via the included Appbrowser.
