Linux It seems that I am in some sort of retro-mode. As Linux on the desktop is getting bigger and better, with more apps, more sleek looks (Galaxy, Keramik and Blue Curve for example) and more idiot proof, I am going onto simpler, more condensed stuff. The big distributions are nice, but I really do not need all the applications that come with them all the time.

This is very impressive, wonder if it uses compression as would seem nessary.
Are there any intermediate size distros inbetween Knoppix & DSL that fit on a 157MB ~3" CDROM ?
Could a semi stripped down Knoppix or Morphix be squezed on to a 157Mb CDROM and targeted specifically for SOHO use and still provide either a compact KDE or Gnome, Mozilla or Firebird, and a good office suite. I dare say OOo 1.1 at some 60MB install is too big.

Thanks if anyone could expand on this
