Original OSNews Interviews A few weeks ago, we asked for the OSNews community to help with some questions we were going to ask Aaron Griffin from the Arch Linux team, and the response was glorious and somewhat phenomenal. We added those questions to our own and sent them on over, and then we were surprised by receiving not only Aaron Griffin's responses but answers from various individuals from the team.

When was thew last time you tried running Win7 or Vista on 8GB? Not really sure about that for MacOS, but there really aren't any embedded mac's aside from ipods and iphones

That's an irrelevant question. The fact that you can install Linux on an 8GB drive is not due to the shared library system. It comes from being able to strip the system down to the components that you want.

You can also install PC-BSD on an 8GB drive and use the pbi system which doesn't use shared libraries.
