ChemPup – a Linux distribution built from Puppy Linux which is a very small, flexible, portable and complete operating system.

In addition to a suite of open-source chemistry programs, ChemPup comes with value-added utilities to easily calculate molecular formulas, convert moles to grams and vice versa, and take much of the math out of keeping a lab notebook.

The live CD features chemistry oriented applications, such as:
– GElement
– ChemCalc
– Nomen
– JChemPaint
– BKChem
– JMol
– Avogadro
– ChemTool
– Gnotebook

No installation required, it boots from the ChemPup CD or USB flashdrive, but installation can be done in two ways, “full” or “frugal”.

The project developer is ‘rpkopreski’.

RLSD – Retro Linux Software Distribution (previously: DSLR Damn Small Linux Remake) – minimalistic and independent developed, based on DSL (Dammn Small Linux), Linux-libre distribution targeted to very old machines.

The distribution started as DSLR, but changed its name to RLSD in September 2014.

The system features ultra lightweight JWM window manager and applications such as:
– Internet: Dillo, Lynx, XChat, guiftp, Sypelheed, ircII
– Multimedia: xhippo, AlsaMixer
– Graphics: mtPaint, GTK See, gcolor, Xaos, Webcam Viewer, Screenshot Taker

RLSD offers a graphical user interface to the „packdude” package manager, which lets you check a list of installed packages, install new ones, and remove packages from the system.

Comparing RLSD to many „popular” Linux distributions, RLSD uses tools like that:
– tinyxserver instead of Xorg
– musl instead of glibc
– loksh instead of Bash

The live system is available for 32 or 64 bit machines with BIOS or UEFI motherboard.

BHLD – a complete operating system that runs from a CD. Simple, fast and painless way to use Linux, without the usurpation of your computer. BHLD goal is to create a complete desktop Linux distribution fully localised into Bosnian.

BHLD was based on KNOPPIX and later on Ubuntu, and shipped with the KDE 3.x desktop environment.

Minimum recommended configuration to launch the KDE graphical environment is:
– Intel Pentium II 400 MHz
– 192 MB RAM
In addition to change certain parameters, BHLD can be run on older computers with min. 64 MB RAM.

The project founder is Vedran Ljubović.
BHDL 1.x was based on Knoppix.
The latest version of BHLD 2.05 was released in 2010, and was based on Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron.

Source Mage – an independent and a source-based GNU/Linux distribution, originally forked from Sorcerer.

Sorcerer GNU/Linux distribution has been released in 2000 by Kyle Sallee. The project was closed down in 2002, after Chuck Mead forked it into Lunar Linux. The remaining Sorcerer GNU/Linux development team brought the Sorcerer back and continued development. Due to Sorcerer licensing, the new form changed its name to Source Mage.

Packages to be installed, are automatically downloaded, compiled, and then installed. Each package is called a “spell”, and its package management program is called “sorcery”. To install a package the user must “cast” that spell. A set of available spells is called a “grimoire”. To uninstall a package the user must “dispel” the spell.

The installable iso images were available for i486, x86_64 and PowerPC machines.

Damn Small Linux (DSL) – a small, business card size computer operating system based on Knoppix. It was designed to run graphical environment and applications on old PC machines with 486 Pentium processors and very little memory.

DSL was originally created and maintained by John Andrews. For five years the community included Robert Shingledecker who created the MyDSL system, DSL Control Panel and other features. After that, Robert quit the project and continues his work on Tiny Core Linux which he created in April 2008.

Beside its small size, DSL features complete desktop and a set of applications for any purpose, such as:
– Mulitmedia: XMMS
– Net: AxyFTP client, Dillo, Netrik and Firefox web browsers, Naim client of AIM, ICQ, IRC, SSH/SCP server and client, DHCP client, PPP, PPPoE, a web server,
– Office: Siag spreadsheet, Sylpheed email, spellcheck, Ted word-processor, text editors: Beaver, Vim, and Nano, Xpdf, calculator
– Graphics: mtPaint raster graphics editor, xzgv image viewer
– System: DFM and emelFM file managers, VNCviwer Remote Desktop Connection client, tools for system monitoring, USB support
– Window Managers: JWM and Fluxbox

The last stable version of DSL 4.4.10 was released in 2008.
After 3 years of stagnation, new, testing versions 4.11 rc1 and rc2 showed up as the last ones.
