Cdlinux.pl – a Polish, Debian unstable “Sid” based Linux distribution, targeted to new Linux users.

The first version of Cdlinux.pl was created in 2001 by Jerzy Kaczmarek and Michał Wróbel at Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Informatics of the Gdańsk University of Technology.

Cdlinux.pl uses Polish locales as default, and a very light IceWM window manager, so it can by run on very old machines with CPU PI 100MHz and 24 MB of RAM memory.

The system is available in 3 versions:
– Mały (Small) – 200MB of the iso image, contains a web browser, a mail client, an instant messenger, audio and video players, a graphics viewer, and a text editor
– Duży (Big) – 700MB of the iso image, contains many extra, useful applications for home and small office users
– DVD – many extra applications available straight from the live system, including many applications of KDE 3.5.6

The live system offers an option which lets you save the live system settings on a hard drive, or install the system on a hard drive as well.

The last version of Cdlinux.pl 1.0 was released in 2007.
There was a few tries to re-activate the project, unfortunately with no effects.

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.
