|I've searched in vain, so I ask you folks:|
Is there a tiny Linux distro aimed at running in a VM (i.e. not buckets of drivers in there for all the things the VM doesn't have; rather a very thin light kernel because its all backed by the VM)? Perhaps even set up for an external x running on the host? Ideally with a packaging system built around single-shot apps? So I can have a VM for a browser, and another for a mail app and so on, each with a tiny footprint?
Host would be Windows or Linux.
