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.

DSL
by Me on Wed 23rd Feb 2005 22:49 UTC

I use DSL (damn small linux) on a 512MB USB memory stick. I have plenty of room left on the stick, and it runs fast on just about any computer. It's all a matter of pref. Some people what an OS with pretty colors, MP3 player integration, all sorts of GUI's to make it easy to do things, other people want small, fast and do most of their work in a terminal window. The majority of the population want the bloated gui os, us geeks who want small and fast because we know what we're doing in the minority.
