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.

The last version | Released: 1.3.0 rc1 | December 16, 2005

AGNULA (A GNU/Linux distribution for audio) – a project started by the European Commission, aimed at creating two Linux distributions that could be used to process music and sound: ReHMuDi (Red Hat Multimedia Distribution) and DeMuDi (Debian Multimedia Distribution). The project has developed as a multimedia harvester with many practical solutions that are not found even in commercial multimedia systems.

The project was coordinated by Centro Tempo Reale (Florence, Italy) and sees the participation of a range of actors from the research, university and business arenas.

The project was funded by the European Commission from April 1, 2002 to March 31, 2004. When the Commission stopped funding the project, volunteers continued work on DeMuDi, while work on the ReHMuDi branch was discontinued.

The purposes of AGNULA can be summarized as follows:
– support the development of GNU/Linux distributions completely dedicated to audio applications.
– provide coordinated access to the widest combination of Free audio software in a coherent environment. This will enhance state-of-the-art research and development in the audio field.
– provide a audio system based on Libre Software which will enhance customized usage (useful in cultural and artistic environments).
– help spreading sensibility on the topics of Libre Software (with specific attention paid to audio/video applications and content distribution).

Adamantix (also known as Trusted Debian) – a Linux distribution based on Debian and focused on tasks requiring increased security measures. The name of the distribution comes from the fictional substance Adamant, which has super strength.

Adamantix uses a robust and flexible access control system RSBAC instead of the standard UNIX, which is not able to protect the target system in the event of the superuser’s account being compromised.

Adamantix was the first distro with buffer overflow protection integrated into the kernel and compiler.

Adamantix presents a ready-made and easy-to-use security policy. To download and activate it requires only one team. After that, Adamantix works like a regular Unix-like operating system.

The Adamantix kernel was compiled with SSP, XFS, loop-AES support, a PaX protection patch was added, an MS (Malware Scan) module with ClamAV support, transparent proxy and MPPE, as well as a number of other options.

The last version | Released: 1.1.1 | April 29, 2013

SprezzOS – a Debian “unstable” based Linux distribution dedicated to the lost arts of high performance, robust computing, and freewheeling hackery.

SprezzOS is derived from Debian, and is an active member of the Debian Derivatives Census. While SprezzOS is a product of Sprezzatech, which retains final control over its definition, contributions from the community are actively welcomed.

All SprezzOS development is open, and has been from the beginning. SprezzOS at its heart is a rolling, rapidly-evolving operating system atop the Linux kernel; when the term “SprezzOS” is used by itself, it is this continuum (the “trunk”) which is referenced.

It is intended that users generally install this trunk, and rely on its frequent updates. From time to time, a snapshot will be taken of the distribution, defining a more static release. New installation media will be released as minor version updates to these releases as the need arises.

– Editors: Kompozer, Leafpad, Nano, Gvim, Abiword, Gaiksaurus
– Files: PCManFM, Rox-filer, MidnightCommander
– Graphics: Gimp, Imagemagick, Geeqie
– Internet: Firefox 3.6.3 (Ubuntu/Slackware), Iceweasel 3.5.9 (Debian), Flash 10+, Irssi, Xchat, Gftp, Links, Lynx, Irssi, Wifi-Radar, wireless-tools, WICD or Network-Manager, aircrack-ng, wireshark

Slackware comes with some interesting addons, anyone who wishes can have KDE 3.5 installed.
As the name suggests, nFlux will always be “in flux”; as the distro evolves every attempt will be made to add or remove applications, scripts, etc in a effort to make each of the three varieties as similar to each other in form and function, without losing their identities.
