I am running Windows and I don't have a very big SSD. I want to use Linux in a VM to compile GIMP but I want to keep the VM as small as possible.
What is the smallest distro you can use to compile code?
TinyCore is about 15MB but I doubt it includes
The GIMP source and compiled binaries are also probably going to be bigger than the distro itself!
Is it worth taking TinyCore and adding lots and lots of packages (thus increasing size) or just starting with a more focused distro?
Ideally the distro should be 200M or less if possible.
