If live runs well chances are that you can install it

there is Puppy Linux among others that run entirely on RAM, once loaded
no disk is required, ideally they will run as long as there is a
continuous power supply.  Given enough ram you can modify most linux to
run this way, but some are designed and modified specifically saving you
the trouble.

Interesting and seems more potent than the raspberry system.  But if
size did not matter so damn much for less money you can get a decent
USFF box and throw the box away and pretend you are building from
scratch.  I suspect the quality of some older USFF is higher.  Yes the
processor and cooling aparatus is a bit bulky ... but it depends on the
use and available space/weight requirement.
