Is a "minimalystic" site in the spirit of muLinux. There are such
interesting things as:

-BusyBox: combines tiny versions of many common UNIX utilities into a single
small executable. It provides minimalist replacements for most of the
utilities you usually find in fileutils, shellutils, etc. BusyBox provides a
fairly complete POSIX environment for any small or embedded system.

-uCLibc is a C library for embedded systems. You can actually statically
link a "Hello World" application under x86 that only takes 4k (as opposed to
200k under GNU libc). Some features are still a work in progress, but for
many things, this is a very sensible choice.

-PoPToP is a Microsoft-compatible Virtual Private Network (VPN) solution for
Linux, which allows Linux to function seamlessly in a Microsoft PPTP VPN

I thought you, brave souls, could be interested in porting them to
Best regards.
Sic muLinux semper vobiscum
