Olive (formerly DeadCD)- a minimalistic GNU/Linux live distribution. Olive LiveCD offers quite a good deal of new technologies, hardly witnessed ever before, as well as some of the more common pieces of software.

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.

GoboLinux – an independent developed Linux distribution from Brazil.

GoboLinux organizes programs in different, own way, and files from each program are placed under their respective program’s own dedicated subdirectory. The makers of GoboLinux have said that “the file system is the package manager”, and the GoboLinux package system uses the file system itself as a package database. GoboLinux uses symlinks and an optional kernel module called GoboHide to achieve all this while maintaining full compatibility with the traditional Linux file system hierarchy.

GoboLinux uses “Compile”, which is a program that downloads, unpacks, compiles source code tarballs, and installs the resulting executable code, all with a single command, using simple compilation scripts known as “recipes”. The Compile system is similar to Gentoo’s Portage system.

The project is under active development from 2003.
GoboLinux is available as a Live/Install DVD for i686 CPU with Enlightenment as the default desktop environment.

Started from version 016, GoboLinux is shipped with awesome window manager as default, for x86_64 machines only.

After 3 years of break, in May 2020 the project developers released a new version 017.
