Submission + - Tiny Core Linux: complete Linux solution in 11MB (geek.com)

An anonymous reader writes: If you ask Linux users what the smallest distribution out there is for a USB stick install or just to start playing around with, they’d probably suggest Damn Small Linux (DSL). DSL is a very versatile Linux distribution including a range of useful apps in 50MB. But it isn’t the smallest.

Tiny Core Linux is a complete Linux GUI desktop solution in just 11MB. Unlike DSL though, this is about as minimal as it gets, with no installed apps, just a menu and a link to a huge list of apps you may want to install. For the Linux pro it means a completely blank sheet where you only add what you want to be productive.

As a productivity OS it may just be perfect if you set it up with a focus on apps that you need. If you want a Internet browsing solution it’s a great choice too and immune to many of the Windows-focused threats on the web.
