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.

it's missing a thing or too

the biggest problem i have with most distros is what they have installed. for example knoppix has cdrw programs and dsl does not but knoppix has gigs of crap i don't want, if i could have it my way i would make a distro like dsl with a easy to use self mod app/script. so any newbiie can add his(or her) fav apps/crap/settings to a iso and burn without the need to really know how to use linux.
i have 512mb ram on my system and i would like have a distro small enough to boot from cd and copy itself to ram letting me uses the cdrw drive for more important things (dvd/divx/mp3/burning) [sVen]
