MLL offers a pleasant experience for learning how to build the Linux OS from scratch and about Linux OS as a whole. It has a great narrative on the inner workings of Linux complemented by an easy-to-follow flow of flawless scripts. As a beginner, one is often tempted to just running the scripts and waiting for a working system and move on without learning much. But MLL has it differently: whether the scripts work or not, one is tempted by the author's text/narative to tinker and dig deeper - to the Dao through doing and experimentation!
MLL is THE Linux at its core: community learning at its best!
About the cons, this user finds some lack of system (host)-specific information, especially possible compilation errors that might be encountered for building the MLL package from source...
Absolutely the best I found after months of research and testing. Very small, very clean, and well documented.
I spent over 25 years in IT and only dabbled with Linux from time to time. When I finally got serious, I wanted to build and compile a system by hand. After months of research and testing I found MLL, and it was perfect.
I have a new project on the horizon and with a little help from my friends, and MLL I am sure it will be a success.
This is one of the smallest Linux distros round. Nothing but the kernel and a few command line tools (through Busybox). Truly minimal and light. User can customize the distro at build time using a config file.
