What is Tiny Core Linux?

Tiny Core Linux is a 12 MB graphical Linux desktop. It is based on a recent Linux kernel, BusyBox, Tiny X, Fltk, and Flwm. The core runs entirely in memory and boots very quickly. The user has complete control over which applications and/or additional hardware to have supported, be it for a desktop, a nettop, an appliance or server; selectable from the project's online repository.

Tiny Core is one of the tiniest computer OS based on Linux kernel. It keeps itself small and helps you get things done. This fast, flexible, and powerful operating system could become a great tool if you are skilled in command line tools and simple shell scripting.
