Sattelite is the very picture of a minimalist BBS system. While having just enough features to be considered a BBS in the full sense, absolutely nothing else is to be found.
The amazingly minimalist waiting for call screen
The configurator where you least expect it.
And a standard issue main menu.
Sattelite does not have any version information. I presume this is the one and only 1.0.
