Deutsche Linux Distribution (DLD) – the first German Linux distribution created in 1992 by Delix Computer GmbH.

The company of Delix Computer GmbH was founded by Dirk Haaga, Nils Mache and Jens Ziemann in 1994. Initially, it was compatible with Slackware, but this compatibility was abandoned when the system was changed from BSD to System V style and RPM introduced as the default package format. DLD was characterized by the translation of almost all documentations and programs into the German language.

At the beginning of 1999, the DLD version 6.0 Professional was certified by IBM as Netfinity Server Proven.
The last version of the DLD 6.1 was released in 1999.

In the same year, Red Hat had taken over the company Delix, and the DLD was discontinued. Dirk Haaga headed the Red Hat Germany GmbH until his accidental death in 2006 as CEO.
An update script was available on the Red Hat FTP server, which facilitates the technical transition from the DLD 6.01 to the current Red Hat Linux 6.1 distribution. On the Red Hat Web server, users will also could find documentation that describes the differences between the distributions and provides guidance on how to transition to Red Hat Linux 6.1. The DLD beginner support as well as the DLD mailing lists and FAQs was continued until the end of 1999.

PLD Linux Distribution – an independent Linux distribution, based on RPM packages, targeted to advanced users and administrators. The main usage of the distribution are network servers, but also is suitable for advanced users of workstations.
The project started in 1998 (the 1.0 release in 2002) and it is still under development (?) by a few (?) enthusiasts.

PLD uses its own package manager called “Poldek”, which lets you install and upgrade the packages. Packages are divided into the smallest portions (such as individual plug-ins and modules), what allows administrators to easy controlling the functionality of available applications and the amount of used disk space.

PLD supports network technologies (IPv6), security (AppArmor, Grsecurity, PAM, GSSAPI, TLS/SSL), and the flexible use of different natural languages to communicate with the user.

The current version of PLD is 3.0 and is in endless development stage.

The system installation can be made using PLD Rescue CD images, then chrooting into prepared, new disk partition or via a Live CD which offers Anaconda installer.

PLD Linux Distribution ia available for a various architectures: x86 (i386, i586, i686), PowerPC, AMD64, Sparc, Alpha.

In 2007 an unofficial version of PLD Linux Distribution was created – PLD Titanium. In 2010 a conflict arose between PLD project leaders and PLD Titanium creator. As a result the Titanium distribution was rebranded and in early 2011 separated from PLD with a new name TLD (Titanium Linux Distribution).

PLD is still under active development, and new images of Rescue iso are available from the GitHub.
