Damn Small BSD – a very small, 50MB BSD distribution intended for hardware with lower resources than those most frequently encountered on a standard PC.

Intended targets include: legacy PC’s, modems, routers, switches, AP’s (Access Points), Set Top Boxes, Atoms, and Cell Phones to name but a few.

There are 2 versions, one based on FreeBSD and one on OpenBSD. It boots directly into RAM off a CD or a USB stick and can be used as a desktop or a firewall.

DSBSD comes with everything you need in a basic desktop environment. It includes the fluxbox window manager, firefox, xmms, and many other applications. It also includes tools to help you get work done, such as an ssh server, a mini httpd, xvncviewer, and more.
