Damn Small Linux is a very versatile 50MB mini desktop oriented Linux distribution.Damn Small is small enough and smart enough to do the following things: Boot from a business card CD as a live linux distribution (LiveCD)Boot from a USB pen driveBoot from within a host operating system (that's right, it can run *inside* Windows)Run very nicely from an IDE Compact Flash drive via a method we call "frugal install"Transform into a Debian OS with a traditional hard drive installRun light enough to power a 486DX with 16MB of RamRun fully in RAM with as little as 128MB (you will be amazed at how fast your computer can be!)Modularly grow -- DSL is highly extendable without the need to customize DSL was originally developed as an experiment to see how many usable desktop applications can fit inside a 50MB live CD. It was at first just a personal tool/toy.
