The last version | Released: unreleased

ARX – a Mach-like operating system written in Modula-2+[3] developed by Acorn Computers Ltd. ARX is a comprehensive OS going beyond UNIX but backwards compatible is expected to be provided with a layer on top. Lightweight processes, share a common address space, amounts to little more than multiple program pointers with no mutual protection. Obviously this means that switching between such processes (called threads) is extremely fast.

ARX it has written in Modula 2 and is reputed to UNIX like. An interesting point for RISC haters is that the code compiled for the Archimedes is less than twice the size of the same code compiled for the 32016, which is very definately a CISC (Complex Instruction Set .. Computer).

Apparantly Acorn are not releasing details of the ARX operating system because they do not want to “confuse the market”. Even software houses, as a whole, have not been told about ARX. Whilst this may be just because ARX isn’t ready for release yet my paranoid brain worries about it’s price.

It was not finished in time to be used in the Acorn Archimedes range of computers, which shipped in 1987 with an operating system named Arthur, later renamed RISC OS.

Genera – a proprietary, commercial operating system and integrated development environment for Lisp machines created in 1982 by Symbolics. It is a fork of an operating system created on the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) AI Lab’s Lisp machines which Symbolics had used in common with Lisp Machines, Inc. (LMI), and Texas Instruments (TI).

Symbolics is currently a privately held company which acquired the assets and intellectual property of the old public company called Symbolics, Inc. The old Symbolics was the premier producer of special-purpose computer systems for running and developing state-of-the-art object-oriented programs in Lisp. It designed and built workstations as well as writing a fully object-oriented operating system and development environment called “Genera” to run on those workstations. Symbolics also created a number of software tools to work with Genera. The new Symbolics continues to sell and maintain these products, along with Open Genera which runs on Alpha processor based workstations running Tru64 Unix. If you would like to know why you should be interested in developing your application in Genera, click here to see 25 reasons. Symbolics also distributes the Macsyma and PDEase software products for Windows PCs.

F.H.C. (Forensic Hard Copy) – a Linux distribution, bootable from CD / USB (live), created exclusively to automate and speed up the identical copy of mass memories.

Such copying procedures are commonly used in the field of forensic computers; it is orthodox practice in this field of information technology, to acquire data from the offending media so as to preserve them from possible alterations or damage, and then subsequently analyze the identical copy. The project was created to meet the operational needs of law enforcement agencies involved in investigative activities of judicial police, technical consultants (CTU) and part (CTP), ensuring the inalterability and use of IT evidence in the criminal trial.

JX – a Java operating system that focuses on a flexible and robust operating system architecture.

The JX system architecture consists of a set of Java components executing on the JX core that is responsible for system initialization, CPU context switching and low-level domain management. The Java code is organized in components which are loaded into domains, verified, and translated to native code.

Main-stream operating systems and traditional microkernels base their protection mechanisms on MMU-provided address space separation. Protection in JX is solely based on the type safety of the intermediate code, the Java bytecode.

The system runs either on off-the-shelf PC hardware (i486, Pentium, and embedded PCs, such as the DIMM-PC) or as a guest system on Linux. Many of the JX Java components, for example the file system, also run on an unmodified JVM. When running on the bare hardware, the system can access IDE disks , 3COM 3C905 NICs, and Matrox G200 video cards. The network code contains IP, TCP, UDP, NFS2 client and server, SUN RPC. Applications that run on top of JX include an Ext2 file system, a window manager, and a database system.

The JX system is developed as an open source system by the University of Erlangen (Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, FAU), a public research university in the cities of Erlangen and Nuremberg in Bavaria, Germany.

Good Life Linux – a minimal, Devuan based LXDE, Openbox, and Xfce operating systems.

Good Life Linux was made so that users with older hardware could install a minimal and base LXDE, Openbox, or Xfce system in order to make their system into what they need without any additional bloat to remove. Featuring the artwork of Ghost Sixtyseven, you get an attractive, stable, and base system (that’s low on resources) which allows you to add only what you want or need. What goes on your system is up to you.

There are no major applications preinstalled; such as, Firefox, Chromium, LibreOffice, Abiword, VLC, etc. No major applications are forced on you. They can easily be installed with the Synaptic Package Manager or the terminal. Aside from including some preinstalled wireless firmware, all that you get are a few essential tools and a few applications that are required by LXDE or Xfce. Other than that, you’re free to install what you want on your system.

Vuu-do (Veteran Unix User-do) – a small, lightweight Linux project based on Devuan, and featuring the Openbox window manager. There is a minimal setup to build on with the programs of your choice, or a maximal version with the most common programs already installed.

All images are hybrid-isos (live-CD/USB), so you can test prior to install.
Current images are non-uefi enabled, efi-versions to come later.

This project has been localized for English and UTF-8.
Vuu-do is powered by Devuan with a whole lotta fsmithred/Refracta magic and Miyolinux soul.

All Vuu-do images include (and are built with) Refracta-snapshot, Refracta-installer, and Refracta2usb, making it easy for anyone to “roll their own”. Users are actively encouraged to do so, Vuu-do is made with the same “Make It Your Own” philosophy adopted from Miyolinux which was the inspiration for Vuu-do Openbox.
