The last version | Released: | December 3, 2016

EdgeBSD – an operating system of the family of BSD-based OS, starting development with the current NetBSD codebase with Git for Source Code Management. Package management is based on pkgsrc.

The primary goal of EdgeBSD is to provide an ambitious environment for working as a bigger community together on the NetBSD Project. This is being achieved thanks to a modern development infrastructure, while taking an aggressive stance on integrating and enabling features.

Ultimately, EdgeBSD aims at being fun and attractive as a Research & Development platform while remaining a modern, robust, and industrial-grade system for all ranges of computer devices.

EdgeBSD should be as attractive a platform as possible, and use the advantages of its existing codebase to experiment on being a modern, safe, and portable Operating System. This vision currently includes:
– advanced facilities for developers (patch management, build environments…)
– re-organization of the base system (Git submodules, packages…)
– a graphical installer;
– modern package management (signed packages…)
– alternatives to Xorg and default desktop environment based on the DeforaOS desktop;
– ready-to-flash images for embedded devices;
– virtualization of components with the RUMP anykernel.

The project development started in 2013.

JabirOS – an independent operating system, forked from FreeBSD 10.

JabirOS provides an installable/live iso image with pre-installed Xfce desktop environment and a basic set of user’s applications.
The system’s kernel is also independent, but forked from FreeBSD.

The default package manager is ‚pkg2ng’ – a fork of ‚pkg’, which manages ‘txz’ packages.
The ‚pkg’ package manager is also available, after installing the system on a hard drive.

The project started in 2012.
The first version of of JabirOS 1.0 was based on a Linux distribution Ubuntu.

JabirOS 2.0 is originally based on FreeBSD, but completely forked from it and has its own packages and kernel.
JabirOS 2 was created for machines: x86_64, ARM Cubieboard and Raspberry Pi.

Features:
– Desktop oriented Unix OS
– Suitable for all computers
– Optimized for AMD64 (PC) and ARM(SBC boards, Tablets, etc.)
– Optimized for server

Anonym.OS – a bootable live cd based on OpenBSD that provides a hardened operating environment whereby all ingress traffic is denied and all egress traffic is automatically and transparently encrypted and/or anonymized.

It was based on OpenBSD 3.8 with strong encryption and anonymization tools. The goal of the project was to provide secure, anonymous web browsing access to everyday users.

The live system uses Fluxbox as its window manager or a text mode as a users choice during the live system boots up.

Desktop environment: CLI
Architecture: x86
Based on: FreeBSD
Wikipedia: PicoBSD
Media: Live Floppy
The last version | Released: 2.2.5 | March 26, 1998

PicoBSD – a one floppy version of FreeBSD, configured mainly for networking applications. It can be used as a router or firewall, or kind of a fixit floppy (or all of them).

Minimal requirements:
– 386SX CPU or better (there is an FPU emulator in kernel)
– 10MB RAM – the more the better. If you have an HDD, you can make a swap partition or swap file (using vnode driver and vnconfig). Then you probably will be able to run with ca. 6MB only
– Modem sitting on COM1-COM4 (default is to use COM2), if you want to have a PPP connection
– Network card: compatible with NE2000, PCI Intel, 3Com 3c509 or with DEC chipsets (ed, ep, fxp and de drivers). The kernel supports two of them (i.e. 7 total) plus two PPP connections (tun interfaces). So you can easily build something like router with as many as 9 outlets

The project developer is Andrzej Bialecki, and newer version is Dinesh Nair.
The latest floppies of version 0.42 were built from 3.0-current sources. Though they provide more features, they tend to be less stable than the latest RELEASE of FreeBSD. Dinesh Nair back-ported these scripts to the latest release (2.2.5), and continues development of PicoBSD using sources from that branch.

In April 2, 2005 Volker Ruppert created an ‘img’ image of PicoBSD. The directory contains a bootable floppy image of PicoBSD, which is a teeny version of FreeBSD. I have been able to get it to boot, as long as I tell it not to probe for a mouse.

PicoBSD is now included in the FreeBSD source files where it is used by embedded system developers to create their own system images. It can be used with recent versions of FreeBSD and it is located in /usr/src/release/picobsd/.

In FreeBSD 5, it has been superseded by the NanoBSD framework.
