New stuff available tomorrow 06/10 at

ok, tomorrow gonna have tinycore_2.0 available as a "SuperPack" for all media- a 50MB grub iso(uses grub), a 50MB isolinux iso, a combo
fat32/syslinux ext2/3/grub USB pkg which can use either syslinux or grub to boot usb, and Biggest of all Portable-Tinycore_2.0 which is a fully portable virtual os running via portable-qemu.
( )
Most awesome aspect of tinycore is that it can mount and save apps/settings back to a qemu-img!!!!!!!!
So, digging the Dog I made a 500MB qemu-img; installed tinycore to partitoned qemu-img(hda1 ext3/hda2 swap), then made vhd's to hold apps and downloaded them into the tinycore vhd!
so, now I got 3 qemu-img vhd's inside a 500MB qemu-img vhd with tinycore installed!!!
It's really confusing to me too
anyway, it also includes scripts to re-create either grub,iso or isolinux.iso and full info.
Basically a Wizard's Tome of Wisdom on a Distro that is just badass!
Tinycore was founded by Robert Shingledecker; ( )
originator of MyDSL, and all that entails, tinycore is very similar but easier to hack
I have installed jwmThemes.tar.gz from dsl to tinycore, see screenshots
Maybe Distro of the Year??
