Evolution Makeiso – a live media based on Arch Linux, created by Makeiso script.

The goal of Makeios is to create an easy to use method of duplicating an existing Arch install for installation on new hardware. Makeiso will create a live iso containing all the info to recreate your Arch install, within a GUI environment.

The Makeiso script will create a live ISO that will include an all new net-based, guided manual CLI installer.

The newly created live ISO will install an up to date duplicate of your Arch install, or alternatively install a new Arch “base only” system.

Finnix – a small, text based rescue CD based on Debian GNU/Linux, targeted to system administrators. Finnix works in Live mode, but it can be installed on your computer’s hard drive. The Live system can be started from a CD, USB flash drive and via the network (PXE).

Finnix includes tools for disk partitioning, network traffic monitoring, boot record repair and installation of other operating systems.

Finnix is built on Debian from the testing branch and is available for i386, amd64, armhf and powerpc machines.

The Finnix Live image also includes the FreeDOS system.

The project was started in 1999, with its first public release in March 2000, making it one of the oldest LiveCDs (predated by DemoLinux and immediately preceded by the Linuxcare Bootable Toolbox).
The project developer is Ryan Finnie.

Inferno – an operating system designed for building distributed and networked systems on a wide variety of devices and platforms. Inferno was based on the experience gained with Plan 9 from Bell Labs, and currently being developed by Vita Nuova. Applications for this system are written in the Limbo language. The name of the system and some related programs (including Styx, Limbo) come from the Dante’s Divine Comedy.

Inferno can run as a user application on top of an existing operating system or as a stand alone operating system. Most of the popular operating systems and processor architectures are supported:
– Host Operating Systems
– Windows NT/2000/XP
– Irix
– Linux
– MacOS X
– FreeBSD
– Solaris
– Plan 9

Inferno applications are written in Limbo®, a modern, safe, modular, concurrent programming language with C-like syntax. It is more powerful than C but considerably easier to understand and debug than C++ or Java. It is easy to express the concurrency in the physical world directly in Limbo’s syntax. Any Inferno application will run identically on all Inferno platforms.

High level security is an important part of the Inferno system. By using one standard protocol for all network communication, security can be focused on one point and provided at a system level. Inferno offers full support for authenticated, encrypted connections using a certificate based user identification scheme and variety of algorithms.

Inferno 4 was released in 2005 as free software.

Founded in March 2000, Vita Nuova Holdings Ltd is an operating systems and application development company specializing in technologies for distributed applications on network devices and embedded systems.

ProteanOS is built on industry-standard and enterprise-quality technology and aims to provide a competitive solution in a wide variety of applications – from personal electronics and automotive systems to robotics and digital signage.

ProteanOS seeks to combine the ease of setup found in most desktop and enterprise operating systems with the flexibility and configurability found in many other embedded operating systems.

All of the software in ProteanOS is free/libre and open source – it can be used, modified, and distributed without restriction.

ProteanOS can be made to run on just about any hardware that can support an operating system and made to work with a variety of UNIX®-like kernels (currently supported is Linux®) and system libraries.

ProteanOS is designed to be as small as possible. Only essential programs and libraries are installed by default. And each software package is stripped down as much as possible.

To install ProteanOS, you need to download a script to build a system called ‘Prokit’ that will allow you to built it.

EON ZFS Storage – an embedded Operating system/Networking (EON), RAM based live ZFS NAS appliance.

EON turns your hardware and disks, into an enterprise featured ZFS storage appliance. It is the first embedded Solaris ZFS (Zettabyte File System) NAS (Network Attached Storage) distribution based on OpenSolaris.

It is a memory (RAM) based live/install image which runs from CD/DVD, USB or CF (compact flash) and Disk on Module. EON delivers a high performance 32/64-bit storage solution built on ZFS, using regular/consumer disks which eliminates the use of costly RAID arrays, controllers and volume management software.

EON focuses on using a small memory footprint so it can run from RAM while maximizing the remaining free memory (L1 ARC) for ZFS performance. Running from RAM adds the advantage of being one hard disk greener in power consumption and removes the OS install disk as a point of failure. And if your hardware fails, no costly measures are needed to get your data. Simply attach the disks to another machine and with a ZFS capable operating system or EON.

Features:
– Simple and Secure CLI (command line interface) administration. Future web-based graphical/browser user interface administration
– Supports ZFS, iSCSI (target and client initiator), NFS, CIFS (Sun Microsystems Implementation) or Samba, SFTP, SSH, NTP, IP filtering, Rsync
– Supported RAID-0, RAID-1, RAID-10, RAID-Z, RAID-Z2, RAID-Z3
– Supports client OS, Windows 200x/XP/Vista, 7, Mac OS X(Leopard, Snow Leopard, LION), Unix and Linux
– Transparent in-band, dynamic filesystem compression (LZJB or GZIP algorithms)
– Capable of expanding the zpool by expanding each disk in the pool (since snv_117)
– Thin provisioned (green) file systems
– Unlimited files, links, directories and snapshots versions(also known as version-ing or read only clones/copies)
– Copy-On-Write (writable) clones
– Link aggregation (teaming network interfaces)
– User Groups and Quotas
– IPfilter module and application to control/restrict network access.
– DTrace, Perl and PHP
– Deduplication (since EON 0.59.9/snv 129)
– Hot spares
– SSD acceleration
