Tiny Core Linux 2.8 : Linux2u

Robert Shingledecker has announced the release of Tiny Core Linux 2.8, the world's
smallest graphical distribution: "Tiny Core Linux 2.8 is now posted. The theme for
this release is to have a single directory for extensions and dependencies. This
greatly improves systems resources by having a single copy of dependencies and it
also greatly improves flexibility in 'moving' applications present upon boot,
dependency auditing, and both batch and selective updating. Change log: updated
FLTK to 1.1.10; updated FLWM with more traditional close button layout; updated
app browser to support new on boot.lst and extension support structure; updated
appsaudit - new menu section OnBoot to support maintenance of onboot.lst; updated
and reorganized cpanel, added 'OnDemand', 'TCE Update', 'USB Install', 'Run Command',
'Xkill', and 'Xvesa Setup'...." Read the rest of the release announcement for a more detailed list of changes.
