My reading list today from various sources on the Net.
- How To: Getting a lean system with a custom Ubuntu install – Decide what you want with your Ubuntu system and install just what you need. Nice and useful how to, BTW!
- Tiny Core Linux – Amazingly Linux is getting smaller every day. This Linux distribution is just 10 MB in size and has minimal applications to boot in a very minimal X desktop. Of course you can extend its capabilities by adding other applications online. No wonder, the previous main developer of Damn Small Linux (DSL), Robert Shingledecker, is the mastermind of this creation. I don’t know precisely whether Tiny Core Linux was the result of conflict happened in DSL recently. Because of this conflict, the DSL development is now a little bit stagnant.
- murgaLua – Learn the programming language that is being used extensively inside Puppy Linux and Damn Small Linux. (Probably Tiny Core Linux uses it as well.) I also deploy some Lua applications in SLAMPP.
- Can Open Source Help the Economy? – Yes, it can. Read the article for the explanation. 🙂
