U-Lite (formerly: Ubuntulite) – a lightweight Linux distribution, based on Ubuntu, designed to run on old and low-resource machines. It is intended for users of legacy systems, not just to make a small linux distro.

So to this end the Operating system needs to be:
– Easily used by people with minimal computer skills
– Usable on old or resurrected computers, and
– Able to satisfy a typical user’s requirement of applications and functionality.

These are the three core aims of the Ubuntulite project.

While this is still subject to some change, Ubuntulite will come with: Openbox, ROX-Filer, fbpannel, menu, Kazehakase, Sylpheed, Gaim, XMMS, Abiword, GNUmeric, and mtpaint.

Ubuntulite should run well on a Pentium (75 MHz), equivalent or better, with 32 MB or more RAM.
