Elemental (The Elemental Linux Server (ELS)) – designed from the outset to be a minimal, no-frills server distribution.

There is no GUI, everything is console-based. There is no package manager, packages are installed from .tar.gz files. There is no administration tool, all configuration is done by manually editing files in the /etc directory.

There is also very little bloat in the ELS distribution.

ELS will easily install on the vintage 1998 Pentium II computer that’s sitting in your basement collecting dust. Don’t throw it out, reanimate it as a home file server or a personal web server.

The project founder is David Horton.

The last version | Released: 12.04.3 | November 29, 2013

Centrych – a reliable, easy-to-use system that provides a unified look & feel, and support for both KDE/Qt and GNOME/GTK applications. Centrych has one desktop environment, based on Xfce with two distinct profiles as shown in the above images; one that has the Oxygen/Qt look of KDE, while the other that provides the Greybird/GTK look of Xubuntu.

Centrych has features not found in other Ubuntu-based distributions. For systems installed with full disk encryption, we’ve added the ability to do simplified-sign-on and quasi two-factor authentication, all our kernels are optimized for desktop use, and we’ve automated TRIM as well as added additional changes that can help improve the performance and longevity of solid state disks.

Centrych aims to provide newer releases of applications that are appropriate to release schedules of an application, not the OS. For example, GIMP 2.8 was an eagerly anticipated release that added a single-window, multi-tabbed capability. Another is Wine, currently the 1.4 release, which gives you the ability to run software written for Microsoft Windows. Both are available in Centrych.
