University Linux is a compact distribution that is optimized for learning about the operation of dedicated network servers and is easily installed on almost any PC having 8 MBytes of HD space and at least 8 MBytes of RAM with no partitioning of your hard drive. As such, it takes advantage of the Linux functions specific to networking while remaining economical with system hard drive and memory resources. University Linux is not designed to be a user-oriented distribution to replace the Windows environment for word processing or Internet browsing. University Linux is intended for instalation on older PCs that can be dedicated as network servers, administered remotely, without having the complications of a desktop style user interface.
