Title: What exactly is microcore vs regular tinycore?
Post by: flyingfishfinger on January 16, 2020, 10:21:56 AM
Hi,
I'm having trouble understanding what exactly constitutes "microcore". The Corebook doesn't mention it at all, so I'm wondering if it's:

a) vmlinuz + rootfs.gz,
b) vmlinuz + core.gz  - what the downloads section calls 11MB "Core" whereas "Tinycore" is the 16MB one which includes GUI elements,
c) something else


Thanks,
Rafael

Cool. So is this subforum the place to discuss "Core" then?

Cheers,
