Minki's Crappy Linux is a Linux-based operating system designed for machines with very little available system memory. It will be fully operational and capable of multitasking on as little as an Intel 486 66 MHz with 4 MB of RAM.


Some of MCLs features include:

  • A web browser
  • A mail client
  • A chat client
  • An office suite (editor, spreadsheet, presenter)
  • A unix-compliant development suit
  • A media player
  • An Amiga module player
  • Graphical and text based games
  • Emulators for ZX Spectrum, Apple II, Gameboy, NES and Master System
  • A CPM emulator
