Outlining Thin Linux
I used to use Gentoo minimal installs but recently discovered Alpine Linux (http://alpinelinux.org/) which is even better.

Use some livecCD or Alpine Linux to create your own CD, and tunnel IP in mails for the fun :D If the latency is less than the TCP time-out you might even get a decent ssh connection.
Linux 3.17-rc2 Release Marks 23 Years of the Linux Kernel
22 years give or take, started with SLS, can't remember which version probably older than this one ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/hist... as I can vaguely remember kernel 0.97 but SLS 1.03 has kernel 0.98pl.
FWIW this is the first Linux distro (there are earlier versions but I didn't bother to search) ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/hist...
And the place to get your kernel was ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/linux/

Linux Kernel 2.6.32 Released
kvm (with a little patch) supports it, running it right now with 5 guests and have 53K pages which are shared.
# cat /sys/kernel/mm/ksm/pages_sharing
That's ~200MB for about 1,5GB memory used on the host.
Now I can't figured out how many times those pages are shared, so I can't calculated the actual memory saved (it's between 200MB and 4x200MB).
