1FCD-OpBSD (also known as Karma BSD) is a one-floppy OpenBSD MP3 player with functionality to mount NTFS, UDF (on DVD, CDROM, or external file), EXT2FS, NFS, MFS, and MSDOS file systems. It plays MP3 tracks, and can copy files from any disk to any disk. The software may be useful for the blind and it can also be used as a unique utility for copying files over a network (via NFS) or from any file system known to OpenBSD. USB sticks can be mounted as well. Static OpenBSD binaries can be made on other systems and used with Karma BSD.
MaheshaBSD is a Live CD modular distribution based on FreeBSD 8.0 (i386). It can be easily put on a USB stick. Users can surf the Internet anonymously (TOR), easily use Adobe Flash (if they download it; Linux emulation is already activated, and a writable directory is made for Adobe Flash), and use Clamav Antivirus, TestDisk, and PhotoRec. MaheshaBSD also speaks (espeak). Its X environment is based upon IceWM.
MaheshaBSD Server is a fully functional demo that never expires comes as a bootable USB image. Its purpose is to show Windows users the flexibility of running FreeBSD off a USB flash drive that works immediately as a server. The FTP server supports quotas; MaheshaBSD Server is the only pre-configured WordPress server that immediately runs everywhere. It is configurable via Webmin (remote web interface). The USB memory stick is writable; phpMyAdmin is also installed. The server can be redirected to any disk; NTFS partitions are also supported. By setting up IP forwarding on ports 21 (FTP), 22 (SSH), and 80 (HTTP), you will have the instant aibility to operate a public Internet FTP/WWW and WordPress server. Linux emulation is activated, allowing the use of many Linux tools. You can add unlimited number of accounts; however, in order to keep SFTP accounts chrooted, this needs some additional setup.
MaheshaDragonBSD is a Live USB distribution based on MaheshaBSD and DragonFly BSD 3.0.2. It contains Midnight Commander, vsftpd server, and a prebuilt vkernel in the /myinstall directory, which you may immediately try by running the 'rune' script in the /myinstall/vkernel directory; however, no root image is available, so you must make your own.
MaheshaNetBSD is a NetBSD Live USB distribution which has the IceWM Desktop and the same feel as all the author's MaheshaBSD-based products. A LiveCD can easily be made from it by running the /makeiso script in the root directory. It can be used for many things like viewing presentations (PDF files, images, etc.), handling recovery tasks, playing music, playing chess, surfing the Internet, etc. Linux emulation is activated. The advantage of this LiveUSB is that the USB pendrive is writable after booting (unlike other MaheshaBSD products), and users can thus easily install packages from the Internet. However, as USB flash drives do not like too many writes, the author keeps a few directories in memory (/tmp, /var, /etc.). MaheshaNetBSD lets you can write in Sanskrit.
One Floppy CD Audio and MP3 Player is based on FreeBSD 4.5 system, and is good if you want to use an older PC as a Hi-Fi player replacement. No hard disk or monitor is necessary. You need only to know few commands to play all your MP3 files from a CD or even a DOS, FAT16, or FAT32 partition. The mini distro also contains an Audio CD player, features a few Unix commands, and a playlist can be copied into the filesystem, as it all resides in memory.
SONaFR is a small system based upon OpenBSD 4.1 and 5.1. Version 1.0 is a floppy version with router, NAT, and firewall capabilities. No hard disk or CD-ROM is necessary. The system boots off a floppy, and all you have to do is to configure it. It also has transparent firewall and bandwidth control capabilities. Version 2.0 has two bootable USB images (OpenBSD 5.1); one has 120 MB, and the other one 1 GB. It has DHCP, Midnight Commander (a Norton Commander clone), and various basic system tools.
