The Fedora build is a desktop build (called a remix, so probably not with
all the bangs and whistles of the out of the box DVD distro) and fits on a
2Gb SD card. The Debian build is, I believe, more server oriented, but
that's Debian generally is. XFCE will run happily in 256Mb of RAM and there
are other small GUIs with the same kind of footprint/
