G4L is a hard disk and partition imaging and cloning tool. The created images are optionally compressed, and they can be stored on a local hard drive or transferred to an anonymous FTP server. A drive can be cloned using the "Click'n'Clone" function. G4L supports file splitting if the local filesystem does not support writing files larger than 2GB. The included kernel supports ATA, serial-ATA, and SCSI drives. Common network cards are supported. It is packaged as a bootable CD image with an ncurses GUI for easy use.
Finnix is a small, self-contained, bootable Linux CD distribution ("LiveCD") for system administrators, based on Debian testing. You can use it to mount and manipulate hard drives and partitions, monitor networks, rebuild boot records, install other operating systems, and much more.
Mnix is a free, simple, and fast i686 GNU/Linux distribution, aimed at experienced users. It is a hybrid distribution; both precompiled packages and sources are supplied. The main focus is keep it simple and to be as Unix-like as possible, using "Free Software" only. Mnix is installed as a basic system with console-only tools, which forms the base which lets the user build a customized distribution (and even remaster it). Its main features are: Free Software only, BSD-style init scripts, only one shell (bash), a simple package manager (mtpkg), a ports-like repository structure called "mars" (the Mtpkg Applications Repository System), a simple filesystem hierarchy which adheres to the Unix philosophy, kernel-libre-only sources, a set of libraries and compilers for the most-used programming languages, and a complete set of shell packages (installable from the ISO) to set up in 30 minutes (more or less) a fully working console-based system. Mnix GNU/Linux is suitable for the somewhat-experienced user who prefers console admin tools to tweak the system, who prefers to compile packages with custom settings, and who wants to customize the kernel for his own system.
amforth is an extendible command interpreter for the Atmel AVR ATmega microcontroller family. It has a turnkey feature for embedded use as well. It does not depend on a host application. The command language is an almost compatible ANS94 forth with extensions. It needs less than 8KB code memory for the base system. It is written in assembly language and forth itself.
Chakra Linux is a Linux distribution that combines the simplicity of Arch Linux with KDE. It is fast, user-friendly, and extremely powerful. It can be used as a live CD or installed to hard disk. Chakra is currently under heavy and active development. It features a graphical installer and automatic hardware configuration. Chakra provides a modular and tweaked package set of the KDE Software Compilation with a lot of useful additions. It features the concept of half-rolling releases and freshly cooked packages and bundles. It is designed for people who really want to learn something about Linux or don't want to deal with administrative overhead.
