"Ball", the Byzantine Askemos Language Layer, is an intrusion resistant and incorruptible, autonomous distributed operating system. It provides application programmers with continuations, messages, and rights management on top of a peer-to-peer network resisting byzantine failures of network nodes. The API significantly raises the level of abstraction in comparison with other operating systems: there are very few system calls, and these are expressed in XML. An alternative understanding of Askemos is that of an XML object database with stored procedures.
SmoothWall Express is a network firewall, designed with home and small business users in mind. It is based upon a security-hardened subset of the GNU/Linux operating system and is completely free to use, download, and distribute. SmoothWall Express offers facilities and features normally only seen in expensive commercial offerings.
Care2x (formerly Care 2002) is software for hospitals and health care organizations. It is designed to integrate the different information systems existing in these organizations into a single efficient system. It solves the problems inherent in a network of multiple programs that are incompatible with each other. It can integrate almost any type of services, systems, departments, clinics, processes, data, or communication that exist in a hospital. Its design can even handle non-medical services or functions like security or maintenance. All of its functions can be accessed with a Web browser, and all program modules are processed on the server side.
LUFS is a hybrid userspace filesystem framework supporting many "exotic" filesystems (localfs, sshfs, ftpfs, httpfs, socketfs, freenetfs, and nutellafs) transparently for any application. It can be regarded as doing the same job as the VFS (virtual filesystem switch) in the kernel: it is a switch, distributing the filesystem calls to its supported filesystems. However, LUFS filesystems are implemented in userspace. This would be a drawback for local filesystems where the access speed is important, but proves to be a huge advantage for networked filesystems where the userland flexibility is most important.
Wiresoft ANA (Automated Network Agent), an Artificial Intelligence-based systems management service, automatically performs over 90% of Linux systems management tasks. It is a self-managing, self-learning system support service that provides constant maintenance and protection for Firegate Servers. ANA services include Software Updating and Integration, Intrusion Detection, Data Back-up and Disaster Recovery, Monitoring, and Alerting.
Contiki is an open source, highly portable, networked, multi-tasking operating system for the Internet of Things. Contiki includes a multitasking kernel, a TCP/IP stack and a set of application programs, and a low-power radio communication stack. It is written in C and designed to be very small: it runs comfortably in a few kilobytes of RAM.
Kerio MailServer is an email and collaboration suite that comes integrated with direct over-the-air (OTA) ActiveSync support, over 14 anti-spam layers (including SpamAssassin), dual anti-virus options (including a ClamAV plugin), collaboration features in Outlook, Entourage, Outlook Mobile, VersaMail, WebMail, and iCal, email archiving, and live automated backups. It supports a variety of SSL-encrypted communication protocols including POP3, IMAP, STMP, and HTTP for WebDAV, CalDAV, Web mail, and wireless ActiveSync. Wireless capabilities include direct email push, synchronization of calendar events, contacts, and tasks, and remote wipe for Windows Mobile devices to delete company data in the event the device is lost or stolen. Authentication options include Active Directory, Apple Open Directory, PAM, and an internal database. It can be administered remotely using an encrypted channel.
blueflops is a two-floppy Linux distribution with a graphical Web browser (links) and an IRC client (rhapsody). The kernel has most of the Ethernet drivers compiled in as modules (including the PCMCIA ones) and PPP support (for dialup connections). The browser is linked with OpenSSL. The scripts are all accessible by a setup script and have a nice dialog frontend.
