Tiny Core's philosophy seems to be: start small and add programs only as needed.
An excellent idea, and one I wish the more mainstream distributions would take to heart. OK, so Tiny Core takes it to extremes that wouldn't be appropriate for a mainstream distribution. But as a general principle, starting small and adding only what you need will result in a much better system that one where you install the kitchen sink from day one. It's a philosophy I've followed for years now. But modern distributions are making it harder and harder to do. Even selecting just the core OS at install time brings with it significant bloat on, say, Fedora or Ubuntu.
