The name was choosen in rememberance of the time that one could fit a fully functional regular Linux system into less than 16MiB of storage. Those times are long gone, but keeping the system footprint small has several benefits. This project aims to bring down the size of a functional and usual Linux installation as far as possible.Note that this is not a distribution! This is more like a overclocking benchmark. Getting it as small as possible no matter the effort.
