Damn Small Linux Makes Darn Big Impression

,----[ Quote ]
| At a mere 50MB, Damn Small Linux (DSL) seems like it would be more at home in
| the realm of rescue disks instead of Desktop OSs. After booting up into full

| impressed with the number of applications and the fact that DSL has two
| choices for graphical interfaces (Window Managers): Fluxbox and jwm (see
| Figures 1 and 2). DSL is based on the Debian Linux distribution.

| The 0.11 kernel was released on December 8th, 1991, gaining demand loading,
| the mkfs, fsck and fdisk utilities, improved floppy drivers, a console that
| could generate beeps, support for US, German, French and Finnish keyboards,
| and settable line-speeds for the com ports (instead of having them hard-coded
| to 2400bps).


Since then, it has taken over the world's top computers.

| OS, DSL is actually small enough to fit and boot from a business card CD as a
| live Linux distribution. *
