DRBL Live (Diskless Remote Boot in Linux) – a free, open source software to managing the deployment of the GNU/Linux operating system across many clients. Imagine the time required to install GNU/Linux on 40, 30, or even 10 client machines individually. DRBL allows for the configuration all of your client computers by installing just one server (remember, not just any virtual private server) machine.

DRBL provides a diskless or systemless environment for client machines. It works on Debian, Ubuntu, Red Hat, Fedora, CentOS and SuSE. DRBL uses distributed hardware resources and makes it possible for clients to fully access local hardware. It also includes Clonezilla, a partitioning and disk cloning utility similar to True Image® or Norton Ghost®.

DRBL uses PXE/etherboot, NFS, and NIS to provide services to client machines so that it is not necessary to install GNU/Linux on the client hard drives individually. Once the server is ready to be a DRBL server, the client machines can boot via PXE/etherboot (diskless). “DRBL” does NOT touch the client hard drives, therefore, other operating systems (e.g. MS Windows) installed on the client machines will be unaffected. This could be useful in, for example, during a phased deployment of GNU/Linux where users still want to have the option of booting to Windows and running some applications only available on MS windows. DRBL allows great flexibility in the deployment of GNU/Linux.

The live system is built on the top od Debian GNU/Linux with Xfce desktop environment as default.

Xanadu GNU/Linux – a Debian based Linux distribution which includes utilities for rescue, forensics, and anonymous browsing, as well as everything you need for everyday use.

Xanadu is 100% compatible with the Debian from the unstable “Sid” branch, making it a continuous distribution. It uses LXDE as a desktop environment designed to be lightweight yet handy.

The name Xanadu (pronounced: sanadú) has been considered synonymous with wealth and mystery, especially thanks to the poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge; it was also the summer capital of the Mongol empire Kublai Jan and was also the name chosen by Theodor Holm Nelson for the hypertext project.

Xanadu features many packages, most of them are distributed under a free software license. The main license is the GNU General Public License (GNU GPL), which along with the GNU Lesser General Public License (GNU LGPL) states that users can make, copy, distribute, research, change, develop and improve software.

Discreete Linux – the project has the goal to provide a protection against these attacks for whistleblowers, human rights defenders, journalists, trade union and political activists and other targets of surveillance.

It is therefore designed for ease of use by people without deeper computer knowledge but high security requirements. It creates a secure, isolated environment for processing and encrypting/decrypting sensitive data.

Even strong end-to-end encryption becomes worthless if the attacker can control the systems that perform the encryption. Discreete Linux brings the endpoints of encrypted communication out of reach of trojan attacks.

The latest version of Discreete Linux 2016.1 beta1 is based on Debian GNU/Linux 8 “Jessie”.
