Operating Systems

You may choose any operating system distribution from the following list. ("Size" is the size of the distribution on disk.)
Don't hesitate to ask us to add a new distribution to it. We will probably be able to accomodate most reasonable requests. And if you don't ask for what you want, we won't know there's a demand for it.
