DistroWatch.com: Tiny Core Linux

Tiny Core Linux

Last Update: 2016-05-23 05:28 UTC


Tiny Core Linux is a 12 MB graphical Linux desktop. It is based on a recent Linux kernel, BusyBox, Tiny X, Fltk, and Flwm. The core runs entirely in memory and boots very quickly. The user has complete control over which applications and/or additional hardware to have supported, be it for a desktop, a nettop, an appliance or server; selectable from the project's online repository.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 44 (288), 6 months: 42 (304), 3 months: 44 (262), 4 weeks: 30 (380), 1 week: 13 (709)

A Practical Guide to Ubuntu Linux (4th Edition)


Table Notes and Explanations
  • Select view: Major packages only (52) All tracked packages (224)
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "kde-workspace" and "plasma-desktop" packages and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.
