Sprite – a research operating system developed at the University of California, Berkeley, by John Ousterhout’s research group.

Sprite is a distributed operating system that provides a single system image to a cluster of workstations. It provides very high file system performance through client and server caching. It has process migration to take advantage of idle machines. It was used as a testbed for research in log-structured file systems, striped file systems, crash recovery, and RAID file systems, among other things.

The Sprite project has now ended, although Sprite is still running on a few machines. If you have a DECstation 5000/200 or a SparcStation 2, you could try running Sprite off the Sprite CD-ROM.

The one single archive contains following files:
– bench.tar.Z: Sources for a collection of small benchmarks used in the paper “Why Aren’t Operating Systems Getting Faster as Fast as Hardware”.
– gdb.tar.Z: gdb for Mach 3.0. (missing)
– gld.tar.Z: Gnu linker with modifications for cross-linking between different machine types.
– hash.tar.Z: The Sprite hashing package. You’ll also need the list package.
– list.tar.Z: The Sprite list package.
– mab.tar.Z: Sources for Modified Andrew Benchmark (used in paper “Why Aren’t Operating Systems Getting Faster as Fast as Hardware” and for other purposes).
– mipsim.tar.Z: A simulator and assembly-language program debugger for the MIPS R2000 architecture, written by John Ousterhout for use in a freshman-level course in C and assembler.
– tcl: A subdirectory full of various files containing sources and documentation for Tcl and Tk and related packages. See the README file in that directory for more information.
– xtsim.tar.Z: library to interface event driven simulator to Xt toolkit.
– sprite-1.096.tar.Z: Sprite kernel sources, version 1.096. Won’t compile into a kernel, but useful for browsing or borrowing code.
– sprited.tar.Z: Sources for a Mach-based Sprite single-server. Mostly of interest only to people doing work with Mach.
– cdrom.txt: Information about Sprite sources and docs on CDROM.

9atom – an operating system based on Plan 9. 9atom (amd64 usb image, 386 iso) augments the Plan 9 distribution with the addition of a 386 PAE kernel, an amd64 cpu and terminal kernel, nupas, extra pc hardware support, IL and Ken’s fs.

“Tt is not polished, but it should contain the basics, be go compatible, contain a copy of nix, be self-compiling, and a few other things that I’ll announce once I have a bit more confidence that I haven’t jobbed the cd.”

The last version | Released: 1983

LOCUS – a UNIX-like distributed operating system developed at UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles, USA) between 1980 and 1983.

LOCUS is a distributed operating system which supports transparent access to data through a network wide filesystem, permits automatic replication of storaget supports transparent distributed process execution, supplies a number of high reliability functions such as nested transactions, and is upward compatible with Unix. Partitioned operation of subnetl and their dynamic merge is also supported.
The system has been operational for about two years at UCLA and extensive experience in its use has been obtained.

LOCUS is a Unix compatible, distributed operating system in operational use at UCLA on a set of 17 Vax/750’s connected by a standard Ethernets. The system supports a very high degree of network transparency, i.e. it makes the network of machines appear to users and programs as a single computer;
machine boundaries are completely hidden during normal operation. Both files and programs can be moved dynamically with no effect on naming or correct operation. Remote resources are accessed in the same manner as local ones. Processes can be created locally and remotely in the same manner, and process interaction is the same, independent of location. Many of these functions operate transparently even across heterogeneous cpus.

LOCUS also provides a number of high reliability facilities, including flexible and automatic replication of storage at a file level, a full implementation of nested transactions[MEUL 83], and a substantially more robust data storage facility than conventional Unix systems. All of the functions reported here have been implemented, and most are in routine use.

An important part of the LOCUS research concerns recovery from failures of parts of the system, including partition of a LOCUS system into separated but functioning subnetworks.

Anarchy Linux – a simple and intuitive Arch Linux installer. The system was created as a fork of Arch-Anywhere, as a result of a potential infringement of the Arch Linux trademark by the developer of Arch Anywhere.

The Anarchy Linux ISO image includes a fully equipped live system that allows you to test it before installing on your computer. The live system uses the Xfce4 desktop by default and comes with pre-installed selection of applications.

The system installer offers support for many language versions and a wide range of configuration options for the target system.

Anarchy Linux also offers an additional text-mode installation media that comes with an installer that works in text mode.
Anarchy Linux uses the official Arch Linux repository package database and additionally uses its own repositories and packages.

The developer of Anarchy Linux is Dylan Schacht.

Container Linux (previously: CoreOS) – an open source operating system based on the Linux kernel. It was designed to work on server stations, providing infrastructure to support computer clusters. The aim of the system is automation of operation, ease of application implementation, security, reliability and scalability.

CoreOS is a fork of Chrome OS – thanks to the software development kit (SDK) that comes with Chromium OS. Adding new features allows you to adapt your system to support the hardware used on your servers.

CoreOS provides only the minimal functionality required to deploy applications inside containers that provide isolated virtualization environments to safely run applications.

The system does not have a package manager, applications run in containers, using Docker and virtualization technology. This allows to run isolated Linux systems on a single host system and resource allocation is done through multiple isolated user spaces instead of using a hypervisor.

Clu Linux Live – a Debian based specialist Linux distribution which features has preinstalled tools for file recovery, partition cloning, and file sharing over Samba and OpenSSH connections.

Linux Live CD provides Various Processing Command Line Utilities (Clu) and Data Rescue Tools which can be used on a Wired or Wireless Network. On Startup it prompts the user to change password, mount all filesystems available locally, start wireless network ( if wifi interface present ), start network services (samba/ssh/sftp) and present user with a console for executing various utilities i.e Text, Image, Audio, Video, Downloading etc. on their FileSystems that are mounted. Googling on Linux ( or bash ) Command Line Utility for doing xyz task, will help the user to get examples of the same.

For Data Rescue, File Managers / FileZilla can be used on networked machines to access the Live CD Machine for copying data files and folders. Refer Video / Screenshot for connection parameters and downloading option. Also Pen Drives and External USB Hard Drives can be connected before startup on the live cd machine to take backups using mcfm or clonezilla.

The last version | Released: Lithinum | February 17, 2013

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.
