Here is the example TinyCore within a VM and that is alleged to make you more secure.

No I am not a Dev or part of TCL I just love that small Linux distros have positive features that allow them to be used effective as a secure device?

Sorry bad grammar.

Bitcoin VM - Bitcoin Virtual Machine

Windows is not a secure environment for running the Bitcoin client. Malware has already been crafted to steal the target's bitcoin wallet. By running the bitcoin client inside a Virtual Machine, malware will have a more difficult time accessing your wallet file.

BitcoinVM is a VirtualBox Virtual Machine (VM) image designed for Windows users of Bitcoin. The VM is based on Tiny Core Linux and the Bitcoin client version 0.3.21.


Naturally them write about it on the TCL forum too. I don't use TCL
but I admire how small it is.

I think the main point is that using Linux makes you more secure. So they should really just get rid of Windows instead of running a virtual machine on top of it.
