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.

Isotop – a distribution of the OpenBSD system intended for personal computer users.

Isotop is an OpenBSD customization script. The goal is to provide you with a pre-configured environment to help you get your bearings in this environment and see how great a system it is.

In short, the developer forget an idea that OpenBSD is made only for informed users. To help you get started, some tools that will have to remain light are integrated. Whenever possible, the default OpenBSD programs are used.

According to the developer, Isotop is neither a fast system nor a system with the latest tools. However, it is a good compromise between these features and maximum security.

The system is offered in the form of Full and Netinstall installation images for i686 and x86_64 machines.

Rockscluster (Rocks Cluster Distribution, originally NPACI Rocks) – a Linux distribution designed for high-performance cluster computing. It was initiated by the National Partnership for Advanced Computational Infrastructure and SDSC in 2000, initially partially financed by the NSF grant (2000-2007).

Rocks was based on the Red Hat Linux distribution, however, the current Rocks versions are already based on CentOS with a modified Anaconda installer, which simplifies mass installation on multiple computers. Rocks contains many tools (eg MPI) that are not part of CentOS, but integral components that cluster a group of computers into a cluster.

Since its first release, Rocks has become a widely used cluster operating system for research, government and commercial organizations, used in 1,376 clusters around the world, on every continent.

Elemental (The Elemental Linux Server (ELS)) – designed from the outset to be a minimal, no-frills server distribution.

There is no GUI, everything is console-based. There is no package manager, packages are installed from .tar.gz files. There is no administration tool, all configuration is done by manually editing files in the /etc directory.

There is also very little bloat in the ELS distribution.

ELS will easily install on the vintage 1998 Pentium II computer that’s sitting in your basement collecting dust. Don’t throw it out, reanimate it as a home file server or a personal web server.

The project founder is David Horton.

TalkingArch – a modification of the Arch Linux installation media, enabling the installation of Arch Linux, also for the visually impaired.

TalkingArch started as Chris Brannon’s personal project to help him more easily install Arch Linux with speech. With much help and input from the community, and with the wonderful work of the Archiso team powering the back end, TalkingArch has grown to become one of the best available live images for rescue and recovery, as well as for installing Arch Linux.

Although it is not an official Arch Linux install image, the aim of the project is to stay as consistent as possible with the official install image and Arch principles, while adding speech and braille support to allow Arch Linux to be installed by blind and visually impaired users.
