This is a very good Operating System. It a Linux distrobution made mainly by John Andrews, Robert Shingledecker, and Robert Lindsay. There are other members, but you can check this out @ damnsmalllinux.org. DSL is a very versatile 50MB mini desktop oriented Linux distribution.
Damn Small is small enough and smart enough to do the following things:
* Boot from a business card CD as a live linux distribution (LiveCD)
* Boot from a USB pen drive
* Boot from within a host operating system (that's right, it can run *inside* Windows)
* Run very nicely from an IDE Compact Flash drive via a method we call "frugal install"
* Transform into a Debian OS with a traditional hard drive install
* Run light enough to power a 486DX with 16MB of Ram
* Run fully in RAM with as little as 128MB (you will be amazed at how fast your computer can be!)
* Modularly grow -- DSL is highly extendable without the need to customize
It is a very good OS if you would (A)Like to try a new OS, (B)Already like Linux distros and want a portable one, or (C)Want to get RID OF WINDOWS.
So try it @ damnsmalllinux.org
