Core GNU/Linux – an extremely minimalist Linux distribution (smaller even than the base Debian system) containing only programs necessary for the system to work.

However, this is not another LiveCD rescue distribution. Rather, it is a distribution designed to build your own Linux, from scratch. Contrary to appearances, it contains almost the latest versions of packages (e.g. kernel version 2.6.21 or gcc 4.1.2).

Core GNU/Linux does not even have an automatic installer (everything is done manually), the ISO image is about 150MB. Needless to say, this is a version designed for advanced Linux users who want to build their own distribution from scratch, and for those who want to learn how a basic system based on the Linux kernel works.
