Hello All!

	[ please CC me - I'm not subscribed ]

	I'm not sure which list should I ask - but in any way, 
	since I'm developper by myself - so here it goes.

	I found interesting question on /. here


I recently found the BusyBox project that combines tiny versions of many 
common UNIX utilities into a single small executable. It provides minimalist

replacements for most of the utilities you usually find in GNU fileutils, 
shellutils, etc. The utilities in BusyBox generally have fewer options than 
their full-featured GNU cousins; however, the options that are included
the expected functionality and behave very much like their GNU counterparts.

As I look through the list of products and projects using BusyBox I find
most installers use it (RH, Slackware, Mandrake, Gentoo, etc.) As the
of this is very small, I came to wonder, are there any other smaller
of common linux software. I found TinyX and the small linux project but I
a proper desktop. Does anyone has a small desktop solution (like KDE or
to recommend. What I'm looking for is a proper desktop solution with common 
configurations tools, standardized IPC and common look-and-feel, not just 
another window manager.

	It was easy to draw a parallel between BusyBox'n'file-utils 
	and Phoenix'n'Mozilla.

	So just a question - is it possible to 'cut down' Gnome environment?
	But leaving main features in place and removing all
	Last I was checking Gnome/Sawmill - environment was quite complete.
	But I didn't manage to make Debian with Gnome installation less than
	half of gigabyte or so.

	Can anyone comment on this?
