uL 0.3

uL (pron. microlinux) is a small, command line only live Linux distribution. It fits in a few mega bytes and can be used out of a low capacity USB pen drive, burnt as a LiveCD, or installed on older hard disks.

Even though it includes some nice features (networking over slmodem, web browsing, plain TeX support, security and development tools etc.), uL does not intend to compete with more comprehensive distributions out there. [...]

Features

Basic command line utilities, administrative, security and networking tools, development tools, networking over smart link modem. Available applications: vi and mcedit (editors), plain TeX (typesetting), antiword, xpdf (document format converters), cdrtools (cdrom utilities), bc (scientific calculator), teapot (spreadsheet), mailx and mutt (mail clients), elinks (web browser) etc...
