I have an instance of Zenix (Debian Based) that runs on 70MB RAM using my Virtual Machine. Whether the Developer could actually squeeze another 20MB out of it and retain good functionality is something I can ask, but doubt. It is already a pretty slim system!
If anyone would like to have a try with it, it is available for download from http://zenix-os.net/download.html Regards, Phill.
