Editorial Amazing is the recent interest in full, live, operating systems that can fit on a 50 MB CD-ROM. It's totally astounding that they can cram so much onto such a tiny disk. But wait.. let's run back to the days of old.. back to say 1988.

A difficult challenge for developers
by Tim on Wed 23rd Feb 2005 22:44 UTC

It seems that people want software that [in no particular order]:

- Is free as in Beer
- Is free as in speech
- Is full featured
- Is fast [loading & running]
- Is bug free
- Requires & consumes very little memory
- Is Really cool looking

And they want it now.
