Ostin Project – an operating system based on (and is developed in loose coordination with) KolibriOS.

It offers strict code formatting and commenting guidelines as well as proper documentation. While Kolibri is mostly developed by Russian/ex-USSR community, Ostin tries to be as much international as possible.

Ostin is also strictly assembly-only, just-for-fun operating system.

PC-BSD – an open-source operating system based on FreeBSD and fully compatible with it. PC-BSD is easy to use and targeted to home and office users.

It has an easy-to-use graphical installer, the default environment is KDE, but the installer (since version 9.0) also offers GNOME, LXDE and Xfce desktops. From 2014, the project developed own, Qt based with Fluxbox window manager, desktop environment called Lumina.

PC-BSD uses the “.pbi” packages. The package manager allows you to install packages with dependencies as well.
Unlike FreeBSD and Linux, the “.pbi” packages contain all the libraries needed to run the program, so the manager installs each one separately.
The advantage of this policy is ease of installing packages, the disadvantage of their large size.

PC-BSD was offered in form of hybrid DVD/USB installation media.

In August 2016, PC-BSD changed its name to TrueOS and is a rolling release operating system.

The project founder is Kris Moore.

The last version | Released: ? | May 2018

FabBSD – a special purpose 4.4BSD-based UNIX-like operating system, designed for machine control applications. Using low-cost hardware, FabBSD can be used to control a wide array of CNC milling machines, lathes, routers, process-control and automation equipment.

A common task of FabBSD systems is the coordinated motion of machine axes, whether driven by steppers, servo-motors or cylinders (with or without software-based closed-loop control). FabBSD uses a kernel-mode trajectory planner to generate stable motion control signals (using blended S-curve velocity profiles) at high frequencies with minimal hardware requirements.

It features applications such as:
– Machine tools: CNC milling machines, lathes, routers, lasers
– Automation: Manipulators, power supplies, relays, valves, heaters
– Instrumentation: Optical encoders, thickness gauges, sensors

FabBSD’s kernel and base are forked from OpenBSD. Its machine control drivers (/sys/dev/cnc/), userland libraries (libcnc) and applications could be easily ported back to OpenBSD, NetBSD or FreeBSD with minimal patching to other parts of the kernel. The base distribution includes OpenSSH, Sudo, Binutils, GCC and GDB. The installation process is straightforward (via CD-ROM, FTP, floppies or tapes).

As of 2018, FabBSD is undergoing active development again and contributors are welcome to provide feedback or patches.

The project founder is Julien Nadeau Carriere.
