    leo wants to know why distros claiming themselves small like this dsl or usaf’s lps include firefox, a resource hog in and by itself? why not midori or anything else with smaller footprints?

    DSL has Dillo and Sylpheed for Internet & Email needs. It also includes Firefox, for times when Dillo isn’t enough browser for your needs.
