Damn Small Linux or DSL is a computer operating system for the x86 family of personal computers.
It is free and open source software under the terms of GNU GPL and other free and open source licenses.
It was designed to run graphical applications on older PC hardware—for example, machines with 486/early Pentium processors and very little memory.
DSL is a Live CD with a size of 50 MB. What originally started as an experiment to see how much software could fit in 50 MB eventually became a full-fledged Linux distribution.
It can be installed on storage media with small capacities, like bootable business cards, USB flash drives, various memory cards, and Zip drives.
