Category: Desktop
Desktop environment: JWM
Architecture: x86
Based on: Slackware
Wikipedia:
Media: Live
The last version | Released: 3.50 | March 21, 2007

BasicLinux – a mini-Linux that boots from HD, FD or CDrom and runs in a 4mb ramdisk. It has a fully-featured shell, an easy-to-use editor, and a variety of useful utilities.

In particular, BasicLinux is well equipped for internet use: it can dial an ISP, browse the web, send/receive mail, and download/upload files. It can also share an internet connection with other computers.

BasicLinux is a good distribution for an old 386/486 with limited RAM and small harddrive. The optional HD installation package puts BasicLinux on its own HD partition, where standard applications can be installed (including X, Netscape and GCC).

It uses a small kernel and busybox to provide a low-RAM Linux, capable of browsing the web, doing email, and functioning as an X terminal. The current release of BasicLinux is particularly suitable for old laptops — it has PCMCIA capability and includes MagicPoint (a presentation tool similar to PowerPoint).

It comes in two versions: one boots from a DOS harddrive, the other boots from floppies. Both versions have the option to install themselves to a Linux partition on the harddrive.

Minimum requirements (DOS version):
– Intel 386 or compatible
– 3 mb RAM
– DOS (or Windows 95/98 in DOS mode)

Minimum requirements (Floppy version):
– Intel 386 or compatible
– 12 mb RAM
– two 1.44 mb floppy disks

DANIX is built around modules so you can store all changes (settings, data, installation of more software). By using storage module the system become acting almost as normal installation, all changes will be pernament.

Just add your custom module to a DVD or other device and it just works. You can have your personal distro containing your own set of applications, design and data. If your module on your device will support readwrite access (usb flashdisk, harddisk), you can store your work into it, so you have a system similar to installed one.

The project was under development between 2003 and 2007.

It’s size is approx. 110MiB, yet it allows a lot of software to be used. Olive’s whole point is to display how easy to use Linux may be, yet without losing any of the features required for heavy-duty work.

It’s also supposed to show various unusual new technologies, not widely known or accepted. Please note that Olive was, partially, built as graduation work at SPSST Panska. Once presented, a release built specifically for school will be available upon personal request.

Olive is based on Debian GNU/Linux, but it uses a custom package management tool called UniPKG.
The live CD features two lightweight window managers of your choice: Enlightenment and Fluxbox.

AFROS – Atari FRee Operating System. It used to be distributed in the form of a harddisk image but now it’s just a plain set of files creating preinstalled TOS compatible EmuTOS/FreeMiNT/fVDI/XaAES based operating system. In the combination of ARAnyM/Linux and AFROS you basically get a completely free TOS/MiNT compatible operating system running on any machine where Linux runs.

ARAnyM/AFROS Live CD is a SLAX-based bootable CD with a small collection of GNU/Linux software, the ARAnyM and the AFROS. It boots and runs completely from CD, does not write anything to the hard drive on its own, but you can write to hard drive from inside the AFROS using the drive D:.

ARAnyM is a software virtual machine (similar to VirtualBox or Bochs) designed and developed for running 32-bit Atari ST/TT/Falcon operating systems (TOS, FreeMiNT, MagiC and Linux-m68k) and TOS/GEM applications on any kind of hardware – be it an IBM clone (read it as “PC”), an Apple, an Unix server, a graphics workstation or even a portable computer.

The developer of ARAnyM and AFROS is Petr Stehlik.
