Tiny Core – The Linux distro you will want to try …
Tiny Core is one of the smallest Linux distributions, but that's not why it doesn't have the tools it needs. This distribution brings with it the essential applications for basic system operation. Tiny Core Linux was developed to run from RAM, which makes this distribution quite fast.
This distribution is targeted at older machines, with the user being able to add several packages. The most basic version of Tiny Core 11 has no graphical environment.
In addition to being installed on a simple machine or virtualized, the Tiny Core distribution can also be used in network simulation scenarios. One example is GNS3, which offers appliances with TinyCore.
