A Bundle of Updates Give 10 Linux Distributions a Boost

Filed under
Linux

Think Linux is just Ubuntu? Think again. Canonical's distribution may still be No. 1 on DistroWatch's list, but there are many other active players. Here are just a few that have been refreshed in the past few months since my last roundup.

1. Tiny Core Linux 4.0

As a 10MB graphical Linux desktop, Tiny Core is billed as “the world's smallest Linux distribution.” Originally a fork of Damn Small Linux, the software runs entirely in memory and boots extremely quickly. Users, meanwhile, have complete control over which applications and additional hardware they want supported. Released just today, version 4.0 of this diminutive distribution updates numerous libraries as well as switching to Linux kernel 3.0.3, among other improvements.
