Byzantium – a live Linux distribution based on Porteus Linux that delivers easy-to-use, secure, and robust mesh networking capabilities.

The goal of Project Byzantium is to develop a communication system by which users can connect to each other and share information in the absence of convenient access to the Internet. This is done by setting up an ad-hoc wireless mesh network that offers services which replace popular websites often used for this purpose, such as Twitter and IRC.

These services and web apps were selected because they are the ones most often used by activists around the world to find one another, exchange information, post media, and organize. They were also selected because they stand the best chance of being easy to use by our intended userbase, which are people using mobile devices like smartphones, MP3 players, and tablet PCs.

Unlike most mesh implementations, a Byzantium Mesh requires no specialized equipment that may not be easy to get during an emergency, just an x86 computer with at least one 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless interface. It will run on just about any x86 computer, including later generation Macbooks.

Chromium OS – an open-source development version of Chrome OS, which is a Linux distribution designed by Google to work primarily with web applications. In preliminary design documents, Google describes a three-tier architecture: firmware, web browser and window manager, and system-level software and userland services.

Historically, Chromium OS was using the Ubuntu-based Linux kernel for the first several releases, but have since then moved on to track the upstream mainline kernel directly, applying changes for the features and stability. The source code has been published in 2009.

Chromium OS “Vanilla” has been created by Liam McLoughlin “Hexxeh”, a 17-year-old college student from Manchester, England. He was building boots from a USB memory stick and included features that Google engineers had not yet implemented, such as support for the Java programming language.
He stopped building it in the April of 2013.
