Growing Core family
« on: November 14, 2012, 12:12:02 AM »
It has been fascinating to witness the development of Tiny Core from its early stages to its current state.

Now watching it scale up to "Corepure64" on the "big" computers while simultaneously scaling down to piCore on the little itty bitty computers is awe inspiring.

Running (32 bit) Tiny Core on various systems from "modest" to "modern" has been easy, quick and pleasant for years now.

When the Raspberry Pi first came to light, who -didn't- think, "Wow, that would be a great fit for Tiny Core."?

Tiny OS... tiny hardware... happy coincidence.

Now using that same tiny OS to unleash those previously shackled 64 bit CPUs and all that memory in our workstations, laptops and servers demonstrates that its no coincidence at all - it turns out to be good design instead.

Roberts, Juanito, BMarkus and the entire team, you guys are incredible.  I thank you and the extended team of extension contributors for all that you do.
