From a sentimental point of view, but also from a tech point of view,
muLinux still is the first floppy: all setup scripts resides in it.
I improved much my knowledge making this scripts and implementing the
hacks containened in it.
The rustic tools like fetchmail, sendmail, RNA and quark aren't
removed: they occupies only few Kb.
I only add some powerful replacement as sendmail, the lpd spooler, mutt,
etc, because some user ask me to use muLinux like a real Linux system
and not a simple scripting toy.

Now, to add complex packages as wine or dosemu and to neglet basic
packages as sendmail and lpd is a non-sense, what do you think?
