NASLite is a Network Attached Storage (NAS) server operating system designed to transform a basic computer into a dedicated file server. Utilizing highly optimized versions of Samba, uCLibc, BusyBox, and various other Linux tools, it provides SMB/CIFS, FTP, or NFS filesystem support. It accommodates multiple client OSes: Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. NASLite offers SMART disk monitoring and large file support, and is incredibly easy to install and administer.
Finnix is a small, self-contained, bootable Linux CD distribution ("LiveCD") for system administrators, based on Debian testing. You can use it to mount and manipulate hard drives and partitions, monitor networks, rebuild boot records, install other operating systems, and much more.
phpSysInfo is a customizable PHP script that parses various files in /proc and displays them. It will display information about system facts like Uptime, CPU, Memory, SCSI, IDE, PCI, Ethernet, Floppy, and Video. It now has full internationalization support along with customizable templates.
OWFS (One Wire Filesystem) allows easy control of the 1-Wire bus under Linux. The bus can either be viewed in a Web browser (OWHTTPD) or as files (OWFS). This makes manipulating the 1-wire devices easy with shell scripts, Perl, C, and other programming languages. 1-Wire devices are intriguing chips made by Dallas Semi. They are cheap, uniquely numbered, and take minimal wiring to connect (a data/power line and ground are all that's required. Chip functions include memory, switches, counters, and sensors of temperature and voltage.
Nightwing allows the creation of quickly deployed wireless networks without the need to make complicated configurations. With the implementation of a Mesh technology called B.A.T.M.A.N, Nightwing allows the extension of wireless networks with a simple way of adding devices that works with minimal human intervention. It has public and private connection interfaces, and the ability to filter content using OpenDNS. It is designed with security in mind, and has low hardware requirements.
Logiclic is a home automation solution. It has just a little kernel (Servlet in Java), and you can add a Manager to this kernel and access it via a Web browser. The manager can exchange services like Tini management, I2C driver, X10 Driver, Switcher Manager, Thermometer, LCD control, etc. With this modular part, you can make your own solution of home automation. It features a neuronal manager and a scripting manager. Documentation is in French.
J/CoMM is an OS independent RS232 remote control. The system has a client/server architecture, has an adjustable HTML GUI, and includes drivers for cameras and beamers (e.g., EIKI LC-XM1/SM1/VM1). The server runs on the computer where the devices are connected via RS232. The client can be any computer having a Web browser, JRE, and access to the device control Web site on the server. The Web page (GUI) communicates with the server through an embedded Java applet (RMI).
The USB Network Daemon is an application that makes a USB interface available over the network as transparently as possible. Because the data structures that are accepted by the daemon are similar to the direct USB calls of a well-known USB driver vendor, the (additional) implementation of the network interface can be done easily. Because of that, applications can be adapted for both local direct and remote network USB accesses easily.
