Each API function in the ChorusOS operating system is contained in one or more of the configurable components. As long as at least one of these components is configured into a given instance of the operating system, the function is available. Some library functions are independent of any specific component and are always available.

ChorusOS 5.0 runs over Solaris operating environments, and supports the following targets:
– UltraSPARC II (CP1500 and CP20x0)
– Intel x86, Pentium

The last version | Released: 1.0 beta3 | December 1, 2011

ue17r (Ubuntu Enlightenment17 Remix) – a Linux distribution, rather a research project or a kind of experiment than a “normal” distribution. The project was born on October, 2011 as an Ubuntu remix with Enlightenment as the default desktop having the name ue17r (Ubuntu Enlightenment17 Remix).

ue17r is a modification of Xubuntu Linux, from which the standard desktop Xfce has been removed and replaced by Enlightenment 17.
The system was compatible with the Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal.

ue17r comes with many applications, codecs and plugins preinstalled (also closed source) which makes it easier to migrate from another non-Linux system.

Alongside of the ue7r desktop lightness and speed, it offers good functionality as well. The Live system works in English as default; other localization are available after installation on a hard drive or a virtual machine.

After a few months of testing, in 2012, the base system was changed to Debian and it was renamed to SparkyLinux.
