What Nano lacks is development. The reason? It is based on assembly language. Or a least it used ti be. It is incredibly fast and light. The tow cons are; 1. There is no way ti install to HD and 2. There is no repo for ADSL programs.

I'm sorry, I can't get Nanolinux to boot from a stick - neither the 32 nor the 64 variety.

Perhaps the single biggest complaint that I may have with this is the lack of a built-in installer. For micro-distribution, I would have expected something for installing it to the hard drive. Even Basic Linux, which was two floppy disks, had an installer program. Regardless, if you are looking for a low resource version of Linux for use on a machine that is otherwise just gathering dust, this one works nicely. It loads quickly, and is quite capable for just being 18MB. I would think that upping the size by about a megabyte to include a basic install to hard drive would be a good idea. Otherwise, it is nice for what it is.
