Meet PicUntu, a lightweight Linux designed for tiny PCs

Anyone who's watched the PC industry at all over the past year or so has surely noticed the flood of tiny, Linux-powered PCs that have been flooding the market.

The Raspberry Pi is certainly the best-known example of this growing new class, but it's by no means the only one, accompanied as it has been by the likes of the MK802, the Cotton Candy, the UG802, the Mele A1000, and virtually countless others.

While there certainly are exceptions—perhaps most notably, the $160 CuBox Pro—most of these devices include just 1GB RAM. Typically, they also run Linux-based Android and/or Ubuntu Linux.

Now, however, there's PicUntu, a Linux distribution tailored specifically to the deliberately minimal specs of these diminutive devices.
