Damn Small Linux

Damn Small Linux is a very compact (50MB) desktop-oriented Linux distribution. It can run via LiveCD, USB pendrive, or from an IDE drive via DSL's Frugal method which makes it perfect for IDE compact flash. DSL is also light enough to run on a 486 with as little as 16MB of ram. With only 128MB of ram DSL can run completely in memory - making it incredibly fast on modern hardware. DSL is modular and can be extended as the user sees fit.

The Damn Small Linux group will have a "thin client" running using Damn Small Linux natively as an example of the type of hardware which could run DSL. They will demo DSL running from a USB pendrive, and from a IDE flash drive. They will demo the MyDSL extension system to show how to install applications over the Internet as wanted.
