20    <para>BusyBox combines tiny versions of many common UNIX utilities into a single small
21     executable. It provides replacements for most of the utilities you usually find in GNU
22     fileutils, shellutils, etc. The utilities in BusyBox generally have fewer options than
23     their full-featured GNU cousins; however, the options that are included provide the
24     expected functionality and behave very much like their GNU counterparts. BusyBox provides
25     a fairly complete environment for any small or embedded system.</para>
