Tiny Core Linux

For your embedded hacking pleasure : Tiny Core Linux

A 10MB basic distribution based on BusyBox, TinyX, Fltk, and Linux 2.6.  Apparently from the same guys who brought us Damn Small Linux, which is a porky 50MB in comparison.

I've seen Linux systems (kernel + root file system) that fit in under 2MB... but of course, they didn't include a functioning UI and X Windows.  Still, it's fun to see how usably Linux is even in very small systems.
