muLinux – a miniature, but nearly full-featured distribution (i.e., version) of Linux that can fit on a single floppy disk and can turn almost any personal computer into a temporary but powerful Linux machine in a matter of minutes. It allows very old and obsolete computers (80386, 80486 and Pentium Pro hardware (dating from 1986 through 1998) to be used as basic intranet/Internet servers or text-based workstations with a UNIX-like operating system.
muLinux could be both booted or installed to a hard drive on an obsolete machine from floppy disks.
Minimal system requirements:
– 4 MB RAM running from a hard drive
– 16 MB RAM booted from floppies, can boot from floppy with only 8MB
– about 20 MB of hard drive space
– an Intel 80386 or later processor
The project was maintained by mathematics and physics professor Michele Andreoli.
