Dear all,

now that there is a running kernel (though with few bells and whistle),
it is time to start thinking about a userland environment.
We're looking for a distribution that
* is oriented toward full keyboard&mouse rather than stylus&optional keyboard.
* is optimized for 640x480 display, few colors
* can run in 16MB of RAM
* fits say a 128 or 256MB of CF while leaving space for the user

So, what is there?

Do you have experience with them? Does any fit the bill?
Which can be best tailored to our needs?

PS: once again thanks a lot to George Almasi. Maybe he'll have time to
upload his new patch & al., or maybe I'll have time

As long as software is not free, we'll have hardware compatibility,
hence bad, expensive, hardware that has decades-long obsolete design.
