Genera – a proprietary, commercial operating system and integrated development environment for Lisp machines created in 1982 by Symbolics. It is a fork of an operating system created on the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) AI Lab’s Lisp machines which Symbolics had used in common with Lisp Machines, Inc. (LMI), and Texas Instruments (TI).

Symbolics is currently a privately held company which acquired the assets and intellectual property of the old public company called Symbolics, Inc. The old Symbolics was the premier producer of special-purpose computer systems for running and developing state-of-the-art object-oriented programs in Lisp. It designed and built workstations as well as writing a fully object-oriented operating system and development environment called “Genera” to run on those workstations. Symbolics also created a number of software tools to work with Genera. The new Symbolics continues to sell and maintain these products, along with Open Genera which runs on Alpha processor based workstations running Tru64 Unix.

Symbolics also distributes the Macsyma and PDEase software products for Windows PCs.

F.H.C. (Forensic Hard Copy) – a Linux distribution, bootable from CD / USB (live), created exclusively to automate and speed up the identical copy of mass memories.

Such copying procedures are commonly used in the field of forensic computers; it is orthodox practice in this field of information technology, to acquire data from the offending media so as to preserve them from possible alterations or damage, and then subsequently analyze the identical copy. The project was created to meet the operational needs of law enforcement agencies involved in investigative activities of judicial police, technical consultants (CTU) and part (CTP), ensuring the inalterability and use of IT evidence in the criminal trial.

Stampede Linux – an independent Linux distribution developed by the Stampede Linux Foundation. Stampede is a remarkable new approach to Linux distributions. Ironically enough, in a world of so many Linux distributions that claim to do everything under the sun, it seems that none really exist that are designed to both perform tasks and maintain speed and reliability. Furthermore, most Linux distributions make too many compromises, whether it be sacrificing functionality to deliver ease of use, or vice versa, Stampede aims to take the middle road.

Stampede Linux was created on December 4th, 1997. This date holds significance as it is the birthday of Stampede Linux’s founder, Matt Wood. The distribution was named after Matt’s personal domain, which he created 6 months before work began on Stampede Linux. He decided to work on Stampede out of his frustration with the present distributions, since none of them could adequately fulfill his needs. Although Matt doesn’t actively work in the distribution today, we still continue on in the original spirit of the project, and he is available as an advisor when necessary.

Container Linux (previously: CoreOS) – an open source operating system based on the Linux kernel. It was designed to work on server stations, providing infrastructure to support computer clusters. The aim of the system is automation of operation, ease of application implementation, security, reliability and scalability.

CoreOS is a fork of Chrome OS – thanks to the software development kit (SDK) that comes with Chromium OS. Adding new features allows you to adapt your system to support the hardware used on your servers.

CoreOS provides only the minimal functionality required to deploy applications inside containers that provide isolated virtualization environments to safely run applications.

The system does not have a package manager, applications run in containers, using Docker and virtualization technology. This allows to run isolated Linux systems on a single host system and resource allocation is done through multiple isolated user spaces instead of using a hypervisor.

Conectiva Linux – an independent Linux distribution for the Latin American market. Conectiva Linux was forked from Red Hat Linux, based on RPM packages and used APT to update and install packages.

Conectiva was a company founded on August 28, 1995 in Curitiba, Paraná, Brazil, by a group of friends, mostly public employees of Banco do Brasil, together with Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo, who was a pioneer in Linux distributions and free software in Brazil and throughout Latin America.

The “Crystal” icons for KDE, which were designed by Conectiva employee Esveraldo Coelho, and the “apt4rpm” port for the Debian GNU / Linux package management, were developed by Conectiva. Conectiva also developed the Synaptic graphical user interface. Conectiva employed a.o. Rik van Riel and the kernel maintainer Marcelo Tosatti.

Conectiva also developed in the area of ​​the Linux kernel, the high availability of Linux and in the area of ​​drivers. Also: XFree86, network protocols, firewall, Linux clusters, performance analysis and optimization, file and resource management.

On January 24, 2005 it was announced that the company MandrakeSoft had acquired Conectiva for 1.79 million euros. On April 7, 2005 MandrakeSoft announced the change of the company’s name to Mandriva and its distributions to the name of Mandriva Linux.

The first version of Conectiva Linux 1.0 Parolin was released October 7, 1997.
The last one version 10 released July 5, 2004.

The live ISO’s user is: default/conectiva/root without password.

The last version | Released: Pre-R2 | August 5, 2002

MkLinux – an Open Source operating system which consists of an implementation of the Linux operating system hosted on the Mach microkernel. We estimate that there are somewhere between 50,000 and 100,000 MkLinux users. A significant number of the installed MkLinux systems are being used in mission-critical applications.

During the early years, most MkLinux development occurred either at Apple or at The Open Group Research Institute in Grenoble, France. MkLinux Developer Release 1 (DR1) was released in early 1996.

MkLinux is a project begun by the OSF Research Institute (now Silicomp RI) and Apple Computer to port Linux, a freely distributed UNIX-like operating system, to a variety of Power Macintosh platforms running on top of OSF Research Institute’s implementation of the Mach microkernel.

Later that year, DR2 was released, incorporating numerous bug fixes. The Linux server was updated to the 2.0.x source base shortly thereafter. At about the same time, (December, 1996) PCI machines were supported and DR2.1 was completed and incorporated into Apple’s “Reference Release”. DR2.1 was released a few months later. With the exception of shared library support and support for 603e machines, very little changed until the appearance of the G3 PowerMacs in late 1997. Support for these machines trickled into the source base over the course of a few months, and pre-DR3, as it was then known, was frozen about March of 1998. While Apple’s quality assurance people tested the disk, the world moved on without it. As a result, a substantial number of bug fixes didn’t make it into the DR3 release.

By the time DR3 was released, at least three additional PowerBook models were partially supported (1400, 2400, and G3 series), and numerous major causes of crashes had been eliminated. At this point, a number of developers had made various fixes to PowerBook support, but they weren’t all in the same kernel.

At that point, at the request of Gilbert Coville, I sent out a request for patches and changes. The GENERIC kernels were born. Several developers joined me in setting up a CVS server for sources so that developers from around the world could easily coordinate their development efforts and maintain a single source tree.

Since the DR3 release, MkLinux has made significant advances in multiple Ethernet support, IDE support, floppy support, and overall stability. Literally hundreds of bug fixes and patches have been submitted in the past few months, and MkLinux is in a stronger position than ever to grow and improve for years to come.

Beginning in the summer of 1998, development work on MkLinux transitioned from Apple and OSF to a community-led effort.
