CarbonOS

Web site: http://sourceforge.net/projects/carbon-os/
Origin: USA
Category: Desktop, Mini system
Desktop environment: Text based
Architecture: x86
Based on: FreeDOS
Wikipedia:
Media: Live CD
The last version | Released: 0.4.0 Alpha | September 20, 2014

CarbonOS – an open-source operating system, based on FreeDOS kernel. CarbonOS is a successor of discontinued LightDOS operating system created by the same author – Corbin Davenport.

The main goals:
– based on FreeDOS 1.1, giving Carbon 100% compatibility with DOS
– 4DOS 8.00 command line
– FAT12/16/32 file system support
– support for CD/DVD drives without configuration
– support for Win95 long file names

The most important change between LightDOS and CarbonOS is, that CarbonOS works as a live CD (and can be installed too) as most Linux distributions.
You can customize Carbon for whatever you want too, run the compiler, and create new .iso file ready for burning.

As of July 16, 2015 the project is no longer under active development.

    As of 6/1/2016 the download link goes to a SourceForge project that no longer contains a copy of CarbonOS 0.4.0 and instead directs you to Cobalt 1.0+ on GitHub (an apparent CarbonOS successor). You might want start hosting this older version yourself.
