"I just found a new toy. It's a Linux distro running a complete desktop, Firefox browser, multimedia utilities, FTP/SSH/IM/torrent/email clients, and a custom package manager… in a 30MB ISO. That's right, it's even smaller than Damn Small Linux. It can be run from CD or USB, and once booted it runs entirely from RAM, so it's VERY quick and you can remove the CD or USB device while the system is running. You can pop it out and free up that spot to read/play/burn something else. Combined with tools to generate your own customized live CD/USB remix, this makes for a very versatile little package. This is SliTaz, and so far it's a lot of fun.

"I'll be using the testing branch for the info this article, which SliTaz calls cooking. The cooking and stable branches are both available for download from the SliTaz websites as ISOs."
