VNC Client as OS?
 
Hey all,
I was just wondering if there is any OS that is solely a VNC client or similar to be used as a kind of dumb terminal; seems pointless to have all the bloat of a full-featured OS when it won't be used for anything else! Thanks in advance

Try Tinycore Linux, it is very small and you can install a vnc-client on it.
It should be possible with any OS that allows you to do a minimal install. After that just install Xorg and a vnc-client. That should work.

Thanks for the response :) I was leaning towards a DSL install but just wondering if there was anything more suited for this purpose. Tinycore looks interesting, definitely having a look!
