Tiny Core Linux 5.0 Has Been Released
Tiny Core Linux is a free open source Linux distro known for its small size and minimalism. This Linux distribution focuses on providing a system using BusyBox and FLTK. Tiny Core is developed by Robert Shingledecker and is licensed under the GNU General Public License version 2. What are the requirements in order to run this Linux distribution?
Lets say you don’t need more than 46 MB of RAM in order to run Tiny Core. What about the CPU? The minimum CPU is an i486DX.
It is very important to know that Tiny Core is not a complete desktop nor is all hardware completely supported, so if you like to contribute to Tiny Core with packaging you favourite application or hardware support, feel free to do it. You can run Tiny Core Linux in your desktop or netbook and installing additional applications from online repositories. The latest Tiny Core Linux stable release is 5.0.
