This is the question that has been bugging me. Fine, I can compile the Linux kernel with glibc, compile gtk2 (and several others extensions), include Openbox, PCManFM and Lxpanel and do the basic scripts needed for it. But then what?
There's already Linux distributions out there that aims to be a bare bones that you can build up. In fact there's 3 (Gentoo, Arch and TinyCore) that I know of. TinyCore even gets the micro-Linux concept right and even the wireless enabled version is under 50MB.
I'm not really sure what SliTaz's role should be anymore. We have the fact that SliTaz runs on older hardware, looks graphically better than most mini distros and that the iso is under 30MB. This all works in our favour, but there is many parts that I can't get to work in my mind.
This is where you come in. Help me define what SliTaz should be so that we can take this distro to the next step. If we don't make the effort now, there might not be a SliTaz (fork or otherwise) to come back to.
