The Epoch Init System is an init system for Linux designed with ease of configuration and non-intrusiveness in mind. It has no external dependencies besides libc and pthreads on a Linux 2.6+ system, though a working /bin/sh is suggested. It's suitable for large and small Linux distributions, but was designed with a focus on smaller Linux systems. It's features include a log system capable of recording boot events before the filesystem is made writable, ASCII runlevels, a convenient, single configuration file setup, automatic hostname setting at boot, automatic virtual filesystem mounting (think /proc), PID file support, stuck job killing during bootup and shutdown, integrated color greeting banner support, and automatic service restart support, to keep vital services running at all times.

Finit is a small SysV init replacement with process supervision similar to that of daemontools and runit. Its focus is on small and embedded GNU/Linux systems, although it is fully functional on standard server and desktop installations. Finit is fast because it starts services in parallel; it then supervises and automatically restarts them if they fail. This can be extended upon with custom callbacks for all services, hooks into the boot process, or plugins to extend the functionality and adapt Finit to your needs. Finit is not only fast, it’s arguably one of the easiest to get started with. A complete system can be booted with one simple configuration file.

pmtr starts your application daemons (not the system daemons) at system boot and lets you dynamically add, remove, or edit jobs at runtime. What makes pmtr different from sysvinit and similar systems is that all your jobs are defined in one configuration file, and the syntax is friendly.

Dev9 is a Linux /dev manager. The idea is to write a 9p2000.u server that ends up providing the same functionality as a combined devfs and udev.

The "EeePC-optimized Kernel for Ubuntu" project aims to produce a set of pre-compiled kernel packages that have been specially tailored to the EeePC's hardware and power usage, and to deliver these packages on a dedicated repository hosted by the author. Delivering these kernel packages over a Debian-style repository ensures that future updates and patches can be automatically downloaded to your EeePC as they're released. Current support is available for Ubuntu v8.04 (Hardy Heron) on the EeePC 700, 900, 900A, 901, 1000, and 1000H models.

HTCFlasher (formerly known as HERMflasher) is a tool which allows you to flash ROMs on most current HTC devices. It has some extra features that the original HTC RUU doesn't have. For example, it can present a serial prompt to the bootloader (replacing mtty), or it can dump NBH file contents (.nb ROM parts).

eINIT is an alternative init system. It's quite fast, since it can potentially be used without the help of any scripting at all, but it is still flexible and extremely modular. The focus is on speed and parallelisation, mostly with embedded devices and low-downtime servers in mind, and benchmarks do suggest that it's doing a fairly good job at that. It compiles cleanly (and should thus work, provided someone writes appropriate modules) on Linux, FreeBSD, and Darwin/Mac OS X.
