Owl (Openwall GNU/*/Linux) is a small security-enhanced Linux distribution for servers. Owl also makes a good base system for customized virtual machine images and embedded systems, and Owl live CDs with remote SSH access are good for recovering or installing systems (whether with Owl or not). A single Owl CD includes the full live system, installable packages, the installer program, as well as full source code and the build environment capable of rebuilding the entire system from source. Owl supports multiple architectures (x86, x86-64, SPARC, and Alpha) and offers some compatibility for packages developed for other Linux distributions. The primary approaches to security are proactive source code review, privilege reduction, privilege separation, careful selection of third-party software, safe defaults, and "hardening" to reduce the likelihood of successful exploitation of security flaws.
enhance_book_photo is a command-line tool for enhancing photographs of pages from books. On such photos, the light is usually not equal on all parts of the picture; some parts are brighter, some parts are darker. This can disrupt OCR or reduce the efficiency of conversion to djvu. enhance_book_photo equalizes the brightness of such photos.
Wintermute is an intelligent framework of applications and libraries that uses neural networking to learn about its host. A pseudo-langauge engine that permits translations and grammar rulesets of any language to be incorporated into the system, and database downloads of different sets of data combine to provide a virtual self-thinking assistant that can be used to perform tasks like dictation to a text editor, and more complex tasks such as sorting of documents depending on the time of day, or automation of other routine tasks. It should be noted that Wintermute itself is a meta-project. It encompasses a large array of currently existing and potential produced projects.
