Linux Tiny Core Linux is an 11 MB graphical Linux based on the 2.6 kernel, BusyBox, Tiny X, Fltk, and Flwm. It's a minimal but extendable distro that runs from memory and loads from any bootable device. Version 4.1 has just been released with many improvements detailed in the release announcement, including app upgrades and bug fixes. 4.1 continues Tiny Core's rapid evolution, which has seen point release upgrades every month or two.

You mean you want to run software that needs multiple gigabytes of memory on a 11MB OS? Seriously?

Considering a single stick of 4GB costs less than 15USD and any non-atom processor manufactured since 2003-2004 has 64bit support I'd say 32bit only has bcome a niche platform.

Also I personally have need for a 64bit system this size, even if it would only be for a VM.
