Linux100 and Linux Tit Bits

Now that I am in the penultimate stage of my analysis it is pertinent I should talk about the little distributions that did the work with only 4MiB Graphics on board. I still have my third computer with 4MiB on board graphics and 64 MiB RAM running old Linux distributions which is still working.

I use it for occasional demonstrations.

Who needs any demonstration with so many live CDs?

Even Windows 95 and 98 could land on this graphic card before the Graphic explosion!

I could never find a adapter to increase its Graphic potential to 8, the maximum.

Those were the days when we used Floppy disks to boot up and I still have few 5.5 inch Floppies.

The distributions that come to my mind are INSERT, Feather Linux, Tiny me and DSL.

I must confess except DSL I rarely needed to use the other distributions.

These became obsolete when Puppy Linux with 96 MiB came into the scene.

It is true that Puppy Linux stands tall among all the other distributions when one is using an old computer.

In historical perspective I must write few lines on each of these teeny weeny units.

The teeny weeny bikinis of the time.

In Linux terminology bare bones of Linux.
