Am I the only one who remembers when a full command line linux distro fit on a 3.5 floppy?

A command line OS, that's not that impressive. The Amiga desktop OS 'Workbench' fitted on one single density floppy (with a whole 880k of space). That's a fully graphical, multitasking OS with all it's utilities etc. on one floppy. IIRC there was even some free space on the disc, so even smaller than 880K.

(I've just checked, Workbench 3.1 used 846KB, leaving 34KB free)
