MeeGo is a Linux-based mobile and embedded operating system. It brings together the Moblin project, headed up by Intel, and Maemo, by Nokia, into a single open source activity. MeeGo currently targets platforms such as netbooks and entry-level desktops, handheld computing and communications devices, in-vehicle infotainment devices, connected TVs, and media phones. All of these platforms have common user requirements in communications, application, and Internet services in a portable or small form factor. The MeeGo project will continue to expand platform support as new features are incorporated and new form factors emerge in the market.
musl is a new implementation of the standard library for Linux-based systems. It is lightweight, fast, simple, free, and strives to be correct in the sense of standards-conformance and safety. It includes a wrapper for building programs against musl in place of the system standard library (e.g. glibc), making it possible to immediately evaluate the library and build compact statically linked binaries with it.
OKL4 Microkernels are a family of second-generation microkernels based on the original designs and implementations by Jochen Liedtke. Originally implemented in highly tuned i386-specific assembly language code, the API has seen extensive development in a number of directions, both in achieving a higher grade of platform independence and also in improving security, isolation, and robustness. There have been various re-implementations of the original binary kernel interface and its higher level successors, including L4Ka::Pistachio, L4/MIPS, and Fiasco. For this reason, the name L4 now applies to the whole microkernel family including the L4 kernel interface and its different versions.
JayOS is a live CD Linux distribution intended for use as a more secure mobile environment. It uses GNU makefiles and Bash shell scripts to automate the building of a complete Linux distribution from source. The result is a turnkey solution for creating a compact, highly-customizable OS. JayOS includes many standard network security and filesystem tools, a full-blown development environment, and many programming tools and libraries including GCC, GDB, DDD, Perl, GTK+, Tcl/Tk, PHP, Ruby, Python, Qt, and Glade. It runs well on commodity hardware, and can be configured to run entirely from memory. In-RAM filesystem encryption with plausible deniability provides a more secure mobile workstation. It is based on Linux From Scratch.
ProviderTool Internet server administration program with email protection. The software is divided into a subcomponent Admin Tool, Customer Tool, and a Reseller Tool. Each subcomponent tool manages a separate zone that is setup for the specific needs of your administrator, end user, and reseller. If you have a Red Hat, SuSE, or Debian Internet or intranet server, you will be able to add, delete, and change settings and users with just a couple of clicks. ProviderTool is delivered with a separate Apache and PHP server environment. There is also an email protection tool included.
Tunix is a set of tools used to generate small bootable Linux images. It can be used to learn how to roll your own distribution, or to port embedded systems. The basic release uses busybox and has a kernel with netfilter-enabled modules. A uclibc iptables binary is included, so you can roll your small firewall from a floppy.
Compact Flash Linux Project is a Linux distribution designed to run on a compact flash card in read-only mode. It is as small as possible, and currently needs around 14 MB. It includes OpenSSH, quagga, iptables, hostap, madwifi, wireless-tools, pppoe, tcpdump, bridge-utils, and more.
Gentoo For Zaurus is a port of the Gentoo Distribution to the Zaurus PDA. It can be mounted over NFS so no changes to a current configuration are needed. It includes a native gcc environment for ARM, the zgcc-3.3.1 cross compiler for the main PC with distcc configured so that the main PC does the actual compiling, and X11 for testing applications.
