“uClinux is a version of the Linux operating system that runs on
processors with no MMU (memory management unit). It supports a
variety of open source applications including webservers, mail
clients, and ftp clients. uClinux also supports the EL/IX
applications programming interface (API). This provides for quick
and easy porting of POSIX compliant applications to NET+Lx software
and NET+ARM hardware.”
