Equally, NetBSD, or some old version of Slackware, or the latest, but select minimalist (maybe only command-line) package sets you want from the very short one-page list you can do that. I'd probably never even consider anything else unless (apart from various software requirements) meeting similar pre-1995 style including based on 1970s hacker culture before RMS could no longer convince others at a certain college/university lab to stop using passwords.

Debian-based, SystemD-free, 32-bit capable. I've run it on a Toshiba Tecra 8000 with a Pentium-II and 256 MB RAM.

light without Miyo-linux is a different universe.
The man (vuu-do as well) has gone to such extremes to make it light and still extremely functional that it is an injustice to mention any others without miyo.
