One of the largest efforts involved with software engineering is testing the software to make sure that it works as designed. Testing can require several different types of system configurations and could require multiple instances of Linux. One way to create this type of environment is to use a virtual machine.
Firefox works on virtually every platform, performs well, is far more secure than Internet Explorer, and provides best-of-breed features such as tabbed browsing, built-in pop-up blocking, and extensive support for World Wide Web standards.

The developers of Damn Small Linux have announced the availability of the first release candidate of version 2.1. My gentoo install is quite dated on my aging laptop, and due to speed and other certain hardware considerations, it isn't likely to be updated again.
