Busybox is well maintained and supported and it supports Uclib for smaller binaries. The Crunchbox homepage doesn't give any info at all. Based on that I'd go with Busybox. If that's not of your liking then please either provide more info yourself or do some research.

Thanks, I use BusyBox too.

I didn't fount an official homepage about CrunchBox!
except:
http://freshmeat.net/projects/crunch...lease_id=89330

So, the homepage in the project page is for RIP rescue Disks and CDs.
