Toorox is a Linux live DVD based on Gentoo which starts as bootable media using KNOPPIX technology. It is designed for ease of use, with a simple control center and a hard disk installer. It contains many applications and uses KDE, GNOME, or XFCE as a working environment. A live USB pen drive image maker is also present on the desktop. It is multi-lingual and contains the unstable branch of Gentoo (x86 and amd64).
sqlzma is a patch against lzma and squashfs that makes squashfs support both LZMA compression and ZLIB compression. A squashfs image file that uses LZMA compression has no backward compatibility, but the patched squashfs and its tools can handle the old squashfs image generated by the unpatched squashfs-tools.
Fyrewall is a full featured firewall system based on FreeBSD. It comes with an easy installation interface. Fyrewall includes features such as full control via a Web interface, an aliasing system for easing management of firewall rules, failover clustering support via CARP, load balancing, integrated VPN support for many popular protocols, traffic and system statistics reporting, and the packaging system.
The 64 Studio Platform Development Kit (PDK) is a version control system for GNU/Linux distributions, allowing the creation and management of many different projects, based on Debian and Ubuntu sources. PDK is written in Python, and the source code is well commented and contains documented examples.
Naraio is a complete package of Apache, MySQL, PHP, Perl, Openssl, Openssh, OpenLDAP, Subversion, Ruby, Python, Phpldapadmin, and Trac. Naraio works with secure LDAP. Users of Trac and Subversion are authenticated with the included OpenLDAP. This is similar to LAMP software with more packages. Naraio is designed to be small and flexible. It is suitable both for small and big enterprises.
Tin Hat is a Linux distribution derived from hardened Gentoo. It aims to provide a very secure, stable, and fast desktop environment that lives purely in RAM. Tin Hat boots from CD, or optionally USB pen drive, but it is not a LiveCD in that it does not mount any file system from the boot device. Rather, Tin Hat employs a massive squashfs image which expands into tmpfs upon booting. This makes for long boot times, but remarkable speeds during human-computer interaction.
The Logic File System enables the user to access files through an additionnal mountpoint, /lfs, where powerful logic queries can be issued and navigation can be done through different dimensions, like date, size, or extension. For instance, LFS allows the user to perform the following commands in the shell: "cd /lfs/ext:mp3|ext:ogg/year:1973/genre:Disco/" and "ls artist:BeeGees/ artist:DonnaSummer/ artist:Chic/".
