Define "unusable browsing". What symptoms are you experiencing?

Good question. Might be handled better over at Unix & Linux, though. I've voted to have it migrated over there.

comment Linux file system that ages off older files when partition is full
Disagree if you like, but all the examples you give fulfill a filesystem's chief goal of storing files, not deleting files.

comment Linux file system that ages off older files when partition is full
You aren't looking for a filesystem. Filesystems excel at storing files in a resilient fashion, with no other goals. What you want are some other userland tools to unlink old files. Or perhaps you should just use Amazon S3 with a bucket expiration policy.

comment Package a Linux system and app into an installable .iso? Kickstart?
Why an ISO? Most administrators would greatly prefer to have a well-maintained deb or rpm package to deploy on their own OS instead of having to deal with a linux distro of unknown providence.
