Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

There has been quite a bit of talk about mini Linux distro's recently so I decided to take a look at some of them. Given the large number of small distro's I narrowed my search to only those less than 200 mb, a live CD, desktop oriented, and those that have had a release in the last couple of months. After reading a few reviews and looking at a few of the websites I decided to take a longer look at Feather Linux.

"Why would you want to have a distro that is so small? There are several reasons: mini distros are faster, they make you evaluate what you really need in a distro, just because you can, but lastly and most importantly--because it is just too cool not to have a complete Linux distribution on a little 8cm CD...!"
