EdgeBSD – an operating system of the family of BSD-based OS, starting development with the current NetBSD codebase with Git for Source Code Management. Package management is based on pkgsrc.

The primary goal of EdgeBSD is to provide an ambitious environment for working as a bigger community together on the NetBSD Project. This is being achieved thanks to a modern development infrastructure, while taking an aggressive stance on integrating and enabling features.

Ultimately, EdgeBSD aims at being fun and attractive as a Research & Development platform while remaining a modern, robust, and industrial-grade system for all ranges of computer devices.

EdgeBSD should be as attractive a platform as possible, and use the advantages of its existing codebase to experiment on being a modern, safe, and portable Operating System. This vision currently includes:
– advanced facilities for developers (patch management, build environments…)
– re-organization of the base system (Git submodules, packages…)
– a graphical installer;
– modern package management (signed packages…)
– alternatives to Xorg and default desktop environment based on the DeforaOS desktop;
– ready-to-flash images for embedded devices;
– virtualization of components with the RUMP anykernel.

The project development started in 2013.

Lunar Linux – an independent (forked from Sorcerer), a source based Linux distribution.

Lunar uses and builds upon the Linux kernel, and offers a unique package management system which builds each software package, or module, from scratch for the machine in which it is being installed.

It makes customization a breeze– you choose the compile options before a module is built, and install a lean and uncluttered system that has exactly what you need. Nothing more, or less.

Once installed, Lunar is remarkably fast, breaking new ground in flexibility and in the options it offers the individual user.

Lunar installs a complete bootstrap development system on your machine. You then tell the Lunar package manager what tools you want, and it builds the entire system by downloading current source code and locally compiling an optimized system tailored toward your specific needs.

Lunar has built in integrity checking and a robust self-repairing capability. It also enables system users to develop their own source-packages using the toolset.
