    That's impossible. You can't even work some Linux distros in there.

    Well yeah. Duh. You can do that. But you would have to setup persistence and you're left with little to know space for those "important" ( ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ) files!

    Also the FULL os takes up much more.

    Well, having a small d boot disk doesn't mean you can't have an external hard drive :V

    I store almost nothing locally. Every time I want to run a program I install it, use it, then delete it. It's constantly sftp'd to me home server for file storage.

    Never said you couldn't xD
    I was pointing out how unconventional that amount of space is. I did realize it was a joke. I am just not very jokey regards to technology.
