Hi, I am new here, but I have an interesting question. Is there any way to optimize linux operating system for only one application.

Lets suppose I have a single board computer and I want only music player to run it. How do you do that...
In this case, booting should be lightening fast.

I know this is pretty hard to do..

I just need overview about how it could be done.

Is it possible to install Linux OS on Dell Precision 9350, it doesn't have a DVD Drive and USB 2.0 Ports, encountered an error the last time attempted to install Windows 7 OS.

Well, a music player is not an operating system... so it is not possible to have ONLY a music player boot your single board computer. What it seems you want is a minimal operating system, and then install only the apps you want or need, whether music player or something else. I would suggest the Arch Linux operating system since it is very minimal, and they make an ARM version for single board computers.
