The Schily Source Package System (SPS) is a source-based packaging system that is developed for SchilliX (a OpenSolaris-based Unix distribution) but is highly portable and works on many operating systems. It "boots" from a single 10kb shell script and creates all needed binaries from scratch. In contrast to other similar systems, it is modular and reusable. It is based on the Schily Makefilesystem and smake.
The Heirloom Bourne Shell is a portable variant of the traditional Unix shell. It is especially suitable for testing the portability of shell scripts and for processing legacy scripts. The Bourne shell does not provide as many features as newer Unix shells, but it does provide a stable shell language. With this in mind, it is also suitable for general script processing and interactive use. This variant of the Bourne shell has been derived from OpenSolaris code and thus provides the SVR4/SVID3 level of the shell.
The Heirloom Documentation Tools provide troff, nroff, and related utilities to format manual pages and other documents for output on terminals and printers. They are portable and enhanced versions of the respective OpenSolaris utilities, which descend from ditroff and the historical Unix troff. troff provides advanced typographical features such as kerning, tracking, and hanging characters. It can access PostScript Type 1, OpenType, and TrueType fonts directly. Internationalized hyphenation, international paper sizes, and UTF-8 input are supported.
The Heirloom Development Tools provide yacc, lex, m4, make, and SCCS as portable derivatives of the utilities released by Sun as part of OpenSolaris. The OpenSolaris utilities were in turn derived from the original Unix versions, and are assumed be conforming implementations of the POSIX standard.
GGobi is a visualization program for exploring high-dimensional data. It provides highly dynamic and interactive graphics such as tours, as well as familiar graphics such as the scatterplot, barchart, and parallel coordinates plots. Plots are interactive and linked with brushing and identification.
NexentaStor is a unified storage solution that installs on standard hardware and provides enterprise class storage at a fraction of the cost of legacy, proprietary storage solutions. NexentaStor is particularly well suited for virtualized environments thanks to the ability of NexentaStor to eliminate duplication of primary data storage, to manage the storage for virtual environments from one interface, and to leverage SSDs to address the random I/O and boot storm issues with virtual environments.

μnix is an open source DIY hardware and software project that endeavors to create a complete, usable, computer workstation using only discrete components, IC chips, and 8-bit microcontrollers. The electronic design, including the schematics and PCB layout, is open and usable by anyone. In addition, the necessary firmware for all of the ancillary microcontrollers is provided, including the advanced firmware acting as the Operating System on the main CPU units. The goal is not to try to create a competing product with any of the x86 computers out there, but instead to learn and teach the very low-level information and skills needed to create a complete workstation from scratch, starting from the circuit boards and ending with the multitasking OS. The project is open to anyone that wants to contribute or even just be involved in some way with a project of this scope and innovation.
