Damn Small Linux 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 customizeDSL was originally developed as an experiment to see how many usable desktop applications can fit inside a 50MB live CD. It was at first just a personal tool/toy. But over time, Damn Small Linux grew into a community project with thousands of development hours put into refinements, including a fully automated remote and local application installation system and a very versatile backup and restore system which may be used with any writable media, including a USB device, floppy disk, or a hard drive.

    DSL has a nearly complete desktop and a tiny core of command-line tools. All applications have been chosen for the best balance of functionality, size, and speed. Damn Small also has the ability to act as an SSH/FTP/HTTPD server right off of a live CD. In our quest to save space and have a fully functional desktop, we’ve made many GUI administration tools that are fast yet still easy to use.

    Damn Small Linux hasn’t been updated in some time, but it’s a fun place to start if you’ve never tried Linux.
