Can you fit enough amateur radio stuff on a bizcard to make it worthwhile? Or would you at least need a mini CD to fit it all in? I don't think there's that much you'd want to remove from DSL's base -- aside from Firefox, the apps are so small that you're not really going to make a big enough dent to fit in much else.
Why not give gramps a nice shiny USB-HDD set up that he can insert in any computer and boot up? Then he has something that still fits in his pocket with all the apps he wants, persistent settings, and plenty of storage if he wants to pimp his myspace page. Same goes for the kids and friends.
EDIT... The "2.6 wishlist" thread has some of the teasers about the tiny core project. Robert hasn't announced any time lines.
