Version 0.1 of TINY Linux Announced

Dec 29, 1999 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — 1 views

Odile Benassy has announced the “first stable release” of TINY Linux — version 0.1. TINY is a small Linux distribution designed especially for reusing old computers. It has very low demands in terms of hardware capacity, and even a Linux beginner can install it easily. No CD drive is required for installation, even for standalone machines. Benassy says “TINY is GUI capable. As long as your machine can bear it, you can run all available Linux applications on it.”

TINY stands for “T'is Independence 'N Yet”.
