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.
CloudLinux is a Linux operating system designed to improve control in the shared hosting and data center arena, while simultaneously increasing control and stability, as well as improving overall performance. It employs kernel level technology called LVE to allow Web hosting companies to control QoS of each individual Web site as well as each section of the Web site. The technology can be used for any multi-tenant environment, where it is beneficial to control resource usage of individual tenant. With CloudLinux, hosting companies can make sure that a single site cannot slow down or take down other Web sites. The OS is interchangeable with CentOS.
Foresight Linux is a desktop operating system featuring an intuitive user interface and a showcase of the latest desktop software, giving users convenient and enjoyable access to their music, photos, videos, documents, and Internet resources. As a Linux distribution, Foresight sets itself apart by eliminating the need for the user to be familiar with Linux, combining a user-focused desktop environment on top of Conary. As the most technically innovative software management system available today, Conary ensures that users can efficiently search, install, and manage all the software on the Foresight system, including bringing in the latest features and fixes without waiting for a major release.
Lincom is a Linux distribution created by volunteers who devote part of their time making Lincom an easy-to-use operating system. Lincom does not brand or make distribution-specific any part of software included, therefore, it is easy to customize to the user's taste. Lincom is fully customizable and the compilation of software that Lincom uses to create its distribution is easily available with full documentation of what Lincom does in terms of branding or customization.
FreeNOS is an experimental microkernel operating system for learning purposes. The system is very experimental, yet it currently supports virtual memory, simple task scheduling, and interprocess communication (IPC). It currently contains support for a few devices, including VGA, keyboard, i8250 serial, ATA drives, and PCI controllers. FreeNOS has an experimental implementation of several filesystems, such as the virtual file system, procfs, tmpfs, linnfs, and ext2fs. Current application libraries include libposix, libc, libteken (terminal emulation), and libexec (executable formats). All source code has been documented with Doxygen tags. It has been tested on recent versions of Qemu, VMWare, VirtualBox, Bochs, and bare hardware.
Exolu is a separation of the Linux kernel into two parts: an exokernel and a library. The exokernel consists only of the implementations for basic hardware resource access and drivers, but no abstractions. The library implements the abstractions and interfaces that are used by programs to interact with the kernel.
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.
haveged is a daemon that feeds the /dev/random pool on Linux using an adaptation of the HArdware Volatile Entropy Gathering and Expansion algorithm invented at IRISA. The implementation attempts to be self-tuning on a wide variety of hardware and includes runtime validation testing. The tarball uses the GNU build mechanism and includes a devel sub-package, self test targets, init system options, and spec file samples for building an RPM. haveged may be used independently of the /dev/random interface through the filesystem at the command line. haveged functionality may be incorporated directly into other components directly through the devel sub-package.
Portable Linux is a tool that lets you create bootable USB and removable drives using popular Live CDs based on Casper (like the Ubuntu family of distributions). It sports some unique features. The live setups it creates let you use the remaining disk space on your USB drive to store and transport files between computers, as usual. If your distribution supports persistence, the files and settings you edit on your live Linux distribution are persisted across reboots. Finally, you can access the area used to store your files from within your Linux distribution.
