By customizing also take into consideration the kernel. You can recompile the kernel to taylor it down to your own system. This means excluding all the unnecessary drivers. Therefore you will get a smaller and faster kernel that takes much less memory into which to load.
Secondly, in Linux you have a number of choices, no matter what are you trying to achieve. There are more than a dozen of windowmanagers, four desktop environments (kde, gnome, xfce and cde, although it's seldom used). There are number of programs that do the same thing, so choose the one you like the best. To gove an example, if you want a mail server, you can choose to run sendmail, squirellmail, qmail, etc....
