ESCLinux – a Linux live-CD, made for carrying interpreters, compilers and libraries for a few IF authoring systems. It boots from the cdrom drive or from an usb key, and doesn’t need any other operative system on the hard drive (e.g. Microsoft Windows) to work. It focuses mostly on Inform, but TADS and Hugo tools are included too.

The first version of ESCLinux was released in 2005 (?) and was based on Knoppix, with KDE desktop as default.
After that, up to version 2009, ESCLinux was based on Arch Linux and was using GNOME desktop environment.
The latest version of ESCLinux 2014 is based on Linux Mint 13 “Maya”, which is based on Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS (Precise Pangolin), and features Xfce desktop as default.

As the developer said (translation from French):

I wanted the system to fit on a mini-CD, but it was expense of available features: this cd was a little too complicated to use optimally for those who do not know linux.

I have restarted this project by releasing it on a complete cd, with a much more modern desktop: KDE. The fact that this cdrom is based on the linux-live script makes it much easier to work with. Unfortunately, it is still not easy to install the live-cd on a hard drive, even if it is possible, this is not for the beginner. On the other hand, it is planned all that it is necessary to connect by the network on this machine (ideal if one has several computers available).

The maintainer of ESCLinux is Eric Forgeot.

Liquid Lemur – a Linux distribution based on Linux Mint and features WindowMaker window manager as the default desktop.

It’s “A 64bit Debian based distro, helping to keep Window Maker alive and useful a little bit longer.”

On the beginning, Lemur was based on Debian testing, and was containing some tools from Dreamlinux and Linux Mint Debian Edition, non-free drivers and multimedia codecs.

In December 2011, the system has been moved to Arch Linux as its base, due to problems with the stability.

In July 2012, the system has been moved back to Debian testing. As an addition, the project founder “palemoon” begun a new hybrid system called „DreamStep” and changed the project page (and name) of Liquid Lemur and Dreamstep to „Moonsoft”.

After a while of project non-activity, in 2014 it was re-activated, and Liquid Lemur has been moved to Linux Mint as its base.
On the end of 2015, palemoon closed the project.

In October 2017 the developer released a new, updated iso image based on Debian 8 Jessie, and said that: “Liquid Lemur 3.0 is currently being developed … A new installer is coming, along with updated Lemur apps and a Debian 9 base.”
