    What went into creating what is possibly the most application-rich Linux distribution available
    1200Mb may be too small for "the most application-rich Linux distribution available". I think most distros, for a graphic interface recommend at minimum, something like 3Gb. Maybe you should consider Damn Small Linux, or Puppy Linux. A long list of other distros and their main attributes is here: http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/

    edit: I should add that I'm currently working on putting an absolute minimum Gentoo install on a 650Mb drive in a 486DX machine
