ADIOS boot CD is a Linux live CD based on Red Hat Linux and a 2.6 kernel, with additional support for squashfs, unionfs, and SELinux. The CD can run from RAM, USB memory stick, or use FAT/EXT files for /var, or copy/install the CD to FAT/EXT files. The user can choose from KDE or IceWM. The user can start User Mode Linux (UML) virtual machines, each of which can start X. Each of the virtual machines can be networked via virtual ethernet switches and hubs. ADIOS requires at least 128MB RAM to run X11.
KaufKauf Slim Linux is a fully configured Linux-based operating system that is able to run from flash memory. It doesn't require more than 700 MBytes of disk space. It comes with full support for several touch controllers and is made to run on weak systems (400 MHz CPU and 256 MBytes RAM are enough). It is designed for embedded systems, doesn't need to be shut down cleanly and comes with Xfce, CUPS, and several other features.
Bluetile is a tiling window manager designed to integrate with the GNOME desktop environment. It provides both a traditional, stacking layout mode as well as tiling layouts where windows are arranged to use the entire screen without overlapping. Bluetile tries to make the tiling paradigm easily accessible to users coming from traditional window managers by drawing on known conventions and providing both mouse and keyboard access for all features.
The goal of the General Applet Interface Library is to give programmers a simple yet powerful applet interface. This library supports wmapplet/dockapps, GNOME 2 panel applets, and ROX panel applets. The applet programmer doesn't have to care about where the applet will be used, since the library handles that. Over 50% of the code in a dockapp and a GNOME 2 Panel applet does only one thing, setting up the applet window. With GAI, this can be reduced to just a few lines of code.
Sherman's aquarium is a screen saver, a GNOME panel applet, and a dock applet that provides an aquarium with fish and/or turtles. In applet mode, it can display lots of information, such as CPU load, temperatures, memory usage, and many other things. Both the applet and the screensaver are very configurable.
