How did you make DSL so damn small???

I just installed (minimal) debian, and it is HUGE in comparison. First I installed basic system without X (=x00MB)and then (using apt-get) x-window-system (=120MB) and fluxbox (=5MB). Yep lots of megabytes, and when I booted X didn't even work.... hmmm...

DSL rocks  :p  

and DSL:s hardware support is amazing....

DSL-fan forever  :cool:

Just waiting to see that "Welcome to Revolution!" post... :)
Honestly, a great little distro! Tried it few days ago on a PI MMX 233 MHz with 64 MB RAM, as a live CD. The computer has a quad-speed CD-ROM, but that wasn't really noticeable.

DSL keeps on getting better with every release.  I don't know how but the embedded version now loads faster on my box... I wish I knew more about linux to appreciate better what you guys are doing.

I am very interested in your project of a DSL with a 2.6 kernel.  Even if this new product doesn't fit into 50 MB, it is still something that I would definitely use on a daily basis.

Congrats Rob and John
