Having used this distro, the video of it is running very much slower than in my experience of using it.
(There was some buffering whilst viewing this, although I have a fast internet connection.)

Edit: May be down to teething problems with this forum(?).

Keep in mind that due to the way we capture these, you definitely should not be using them to gauge what kind of performance you may see on bare metal (and this go doubly so for the first ones, as we test out different settings to get optimal results). That's unrelated to them buffering though, which may be a connectivity issue between you and the streaming provider.

hi, I'm using TinyCore for some years on iMac, MacMini, Dell, Acer and am very fine with it.

The main advantage is its easy handling and its speed, as you download exactly what you want and nothing more, esp. no crapware. The image size of the system is only 15 MBytes. Use the corresponding CorePlus to have TinyCore plus 6 different window managers, a remastering tool, an installer for bootable sticks, non-us-keyboards and wlan.

This text is meant to be a starting help for TinyCore-newcomers, not a complete TinyCore manual, you will better find at www.tinycorelinux.net

Booting from the pure TC-CD without any boot option you first have almost nothing usable. A simple text Editor, ControlPanel, Apps, RunProgram, MountTool and Terminal, that's all.

You can mount all of the hard drives that are shown on the MountTool (UNIX style sda1 ... not Windows style C:/ ...). Use the terminal commands to read from and even write to the hard drives and change or even delete data.

So you should exactly know what you are doing to avoid damaging your existing windows installation!

Now use the Apps Tool to download the extensions (programs) you want to work with. However, this does not mean persistence,- after the next rundown all of your data and programs will be lost (except the data you changed on the hard drives).

If you want to keep your data and programs for your next TinyCore session (persistence) you first have to create a so called Frugal Installation. This is the common way to use TinyCore.

Mount the hard drive where you want to have your frugal TinyCore installation (let's assume sda1) and add a new directory to your existing directories there, and name it sda1/tce/ (if it is not yet existing).

Now restart using your TinyCore-CD. It will find your sda1/tce/ directory and will prepare it for further use.

Again use the Apps tool to download the programms you want to use. Now they are stored in a new directory sda1/tce/optional/ and so they are ready to use every time you start TinyCore. I recommend the following most frequently used programs to download first:

alsa.tcz sound driver
fluff.tcz file manager
firefox-official.tcz internet browser
libreoffice.tcz office suite
gimp.tcz foto manipulating tool
flburn.tcz CD/DVD creator
thunderbird.tcz mailer

All of the downloaded programs will be available after the next restart.
All of the data you created this session will be available after the next restart.

Use the CorePlus-CD to create a bootable pendrive (USB-stick).

This is very useful to take your system in a pocket with you and run it on any laptop or workstation you are allowed, without damaging the host system and with no risk to leave unwanted tracks
