You could use Lubuntu and login to the Openbox desktop that is basically just a terminal and probably just as light but gives you the option to open a web browser or GUI programs if you want/need to?

BAMT is designed to do exaclty what you are trying to do.

Throw a few coins to the developer once it's up and cranking.
