The Advanced Linux Sound Architecture is composed of several parts. The first is a fully modularized sound driver which supports module autoloading, devfs, isapnp autoconfiguration, and gives complete access to analog audio, digital audio, control, mixer, synthesizer, DSP, MIDI, and timer components of audio hardware. It also includes a fully-featured kernel-level sequencer, a full compatibility layer for OSS/Free applications, an object-oriented C library which covers and enhances the ALSA kernel driver functionality for applications (client/server, plugins, PCM sharing/multiplexing, PCM metering, etc.), an interactive configuration program for the driver, and some simple utilities for basic management.

The Web10G project (a follow-on from Web100) was created to produce a complete host-software environment that will run common TCP applications at 100% of the available bandwidth, regardless of the magnitude of a network's capability. Web10G has endowed TCP with better instrumentation. This instrumentation is the foundation for both the TCP autotuning performed in process-level code and the process-level tools designed to locate bottlenecks within the following major subsystems: the sending application, the sending OS, the Internet path, the receiving OS, and the receiving application. Measurement tools have also been built on this instrumentation to display performance indicators to end-users, as well as provide internal diagnostics for network and system administrators.

The Working Overloaded Linux Kernel (WOLK) project provides stable and development kernels for either server or testing purposes. These kernels provide a server kernel and also a service for developers and end users who can't be up-to-date with the latest kernels/patches but want to test new kernel features. Patches may be added upon request.

The Openwall Linux kernel patch is a collection of security "hardening" features for the Linux kernel. In addition to the new features, some versions of the patch contain various security fixes. The "hardening" features of the patch, while not a complete method of protection, provide an extra layer of security against the easier ways to exploit certain classes of vulnerabilities and/or reduce the impact of those vulnerabilities. The patch can also add a little bit more privacy to the system by restricting access to parts of /proc so that users may not see what others are doing.

kernbench is a CPU throughput benchmark. It is designed to compare kernels on the same machine, or to compare hardware. It runs a kernel compile at various numbers of concurrent jobs: 1/2 number of CPUs, optimal (default is 4xnumber of CPUs), and maximal job count. Optionally it can also run single threaded. It then prints out a number of useful statistics for the average of each group of runs.

ring3k is a user mode kernel capable of running Windows 2000 and XP compatible native applications on a Linux platform. It is a light-weight virtualization of the NT kernel for the Linux x86 platform achieved by reimplementing kernel mode code as a ring 3 process in C++.
