Flash Linux released
Flash Linux is a compact distribution designed to run off 256Mb USB keys. It includes hardware detection, auto configuration, a fairly complete Gnome 2.8 desktop, and associated office tools. Ideal if you want to try out Gnome 2.8 without touching your current system with over 50Mb of storage left after installation. Note that this is a first release, it should however be pretty usable and stable.
