Linux Since its 4.4.10 release way back in 2008, Damn Small Linux languished as an inactive project. But a month ago John Andrews announced 4.11 release candidate 2. It includes updated apps and bug fixes. Download from here (only 50m). More on what's in the release candidate here. DSL is popular for making older computers useful and also works well as a tiny live distro.

DSL is pretty explicitly targeted at getting old ia32 hardware to work. Tiny Core might take up less space on disk, but good luck getting that 486 with an ISA card to work right.
