There is only one way to answer that. Those of you that have been
following the list may know that I am currently installing a 300
terminal Windoze network. All the client side was completed tonight so
just to annoy the system admin guy I configured the server as a dumb
hard disk controller linked to my 386 laptop via an ethernet port,
ethernet port to the network. Booted up muLinux on my laptop,
configured the
samba, httpd, mail, diald, and IP masquerading stuff.

End result :-

Full in house web publishing
Dial on demand internet access with IP masquerading and firewall
Windoze file serving
Full mail facilities (internal and external dial on demand)

So if thats a toy then I could carry on like this all night !

Pico-BSD? ?? Still lying in the primordial soup of almost made it's(that

others who subscribe to the list who feel the same. MuLinux is here to
stay one way or another.

So come on use the best and ditch the rest!
