Single purpose distribution?
Hello! I'm working on a robot for a FIRST team, and this year we would like to have an on-board computer to do vision processing (from four Microsoft Kinects). Somebody told me that there are Linux distributions whose entire purpose is to boot up quickly and execute a single program (in this case OpenCV). I was wondering if anyone happens to know of such a distribution. So far, what I've found is that there are highly stripped-down distributions which, like any distribution, can be made to run programs automatically at startup. I'm not sure what to pick.... Thanks!
p.s We've got a Mini-ITX motherboard, 4.1ghz CPU, 32 Gb of RAM, and a 50Gb SSD, just in case you were wondering. It's a fully functioning desktop.
