Eclipse/BSD – an operating system which is the basis for testing the Quality of Service (QoS) that is being developed at the Information Sciences Research Center at Bell Labs, Lucent Technologies. Eclipse/BSD is based on FreeBSD version 3.4., and is compatible with FreeBSD, supporting the same system calls, protocols, drivers and applications.

The system developers have implemented hierarchical proportional share cpu, disk and link schedulers, the /reserv file system providing an API to manipulate “reservations” and a tagging mechanism for the association of reservations with schedulable operations.

Eclipse/BSD is being used to guarantee QoS to server applications, and in particular to differentiate the performance of different web sites hosted on the same platform.

The demand to provide Quality of Service (QoS) guarantees is increasing with the need to run multiple server applications, such as audio and video media servers and web servers, and host services for multiple entities (e.g., companies, individuals) on the same platform. QoS requirements may be client-based, service-based, contentbased, and so on.

ekkoBSD – a core OS offers security, stability, and flexibility to your infrastructure. As a default installation, it gives you an email server, Web Server, ssh, and several other services that would normally need to be added and secured. The goal of the ekkoBSD project is to provide a safe, secure, and simple to administer network operating system.

The project was founded and managed by Rick Collette, and coded by other programmers as well.

A concept that had been with ekkoBSD since its beginning were the implementations of “Single Servers”. These are much like the single-floppy firewalls, rescue discs, etc. found within PicoBSD.

The ekkoBSD project’s end was announced on the home page on July 18, 2004.

MicroBSD – a fork of the UNIX-like BSD operating system descendant OpenBSD 3.0, begun in July 2002. The project’s objective was to produce a free and fully secure, complete system, but with a small footprint. The first phase of its development stopped in 2002. The project was later resumed by a new group of developers, which stopped development again in 2003.

Because of violations of the BSD license the MicroBSD project has been completely removed from the internet, and all MicroBSD users are asked to remove it from their computers.

The old MicroBSD project (hosted at microbsd.com) does not exist anymore, but code from it has been incorporated into the MirOS BSD project. The last version of the old MicroBSD 0.6 project was released in October 2002.

The new MicroBSD project set its goal as trying to continue what the original MicroBSD project began. A new edition of version 0.6 – with cleaned up source code and corrected copyright statements – was released in October 2003. A beta 0.7 version was being derived from OpenBSD 3.4, but the project stalled and all development ceased that November.

MicroBSD was under development by individuals from Bulgaria and was intent on a focus toward security, development of a user interface, easy management and configuration, and the addition of Bulgarian-specific localization.

MirOS BSD – a secure operating system from the BSD family for 32-bit i386 and sparc systems. It is based on 4.4BSD-Lite (mostly OpenBSD, some NetBSD®). The MirPorts Framework is a portable ports tree to facilitate the installation of additional software. The project also releases some portable software: mksh, a pdksh-based shell; PaxMirabilis, an archiver for various formats; MirMake, a framework for building software; MirNroff, an AT&T nroff based man page (and text document) formatter; MirCksum, a flexible checksumming and hash generation tool; and some more.

MirOS is available as a BSD flavour which originated as an OpenBSD patchkit, but has grown very much on its own, though still being synchronized with the ongoing development of OpenBSD, thus inheriting most of its good security history. This variant is also called “MirBSD”, but the usage of that word to denote MirOS BSD (plus MirPorts) is deprecated.

MirOS started after some differences in opinion between Theo de Raadt, the OpenBSD project leader, and Thorsten Glaser, who is now our lead developer. The main maintainer of MirPorts is BennySiegert. There are several more persons working as contributors on the project.

The latest release of MirOS is #10semel released March 16, 2008; the latest preview of MirBSD-current is 10uB4-20160117 released January 17, 2016.
