I was at the bookstore looking through the book "knoppix hacks", and noticed that there was a little section in there about dsl. Many probably knew about this, but I just found it and thought I would share for those who didnt.

From Section 8.6 of Knoppix Hacks:

Damn Small Linux is a business-card-sized (50 MB) bootable live CD Linux distribution. Despite its size, it strives to have a functional and easy to use desktop. <snip>

I believe DSL is a nearly complete desktop. It includes:

A desktop environment
Containing the FluxBox window manager, and emelFM and Midnight Commander file managers

Office applications
Containing a spreadsheet; a spellchecker (U.S. English); a word processor (Ted-GTK); a calculator; SQLite, which is used to manage an address book; and four text editors (Beaver, Vim, Zile, and Nano)

Graphics editing and viewing
Containing Xpaint, Xzgv, and Xpdf

Multimedia applications
Containing XMMS (MP3, OGG, and MPEG player) and CD-burning capabilities

Internet applications
Containing Dillo and links-hacked web browsers, Sylpheed email, and Naim (AIM, ICQ, and IRC)

Networking clients
Containing PPP, PPPoE (ADSL), DHCP, FTP, SSH/SCP, VNCviwer, and Rdesktop

Networking services
Containing SSH/SCP, web, FTP, and NFS servers

Hardware support
Containing USB, PCMCIA, generic and GhostScript printer support, and wireless networking <snip>

There's more, but this is a good highlight.

Don't say "No" to Digital Restrictions Management, say "HELL, NO!!!".
