Eeebuntu (or Aurora (the latest name) formerly known as Ubuntu Eee) – a variant of Ubuntu specifically for the asus eee-pc and other netbook type computers, such as the Asus Eee PC line of netbooks. Aurora started life originally in 2008 as the Eeebuntu project, a customized redistribution of Ubuntu.

Originally a simple collection of scripts and hacks to get Ubuntu 8.04 onto an EeePC it grew into a distribution of its own

Four versions were available of Eeebuntu: Standard, NBR (standard with Ubuntu Netbook Edition), Base and LXDE.

In May/June 2009 the Eeebuntu team released version 3.0. To add to the value of Eeebuntu; support for a wide range on non-eeepc netbooks was added to the acpi and kernel.

In September 2009 the team announced work on Eeebuntu 4 (eb4) but the project would see a shift in support. In December we announced that, as well as a Debian base, developers would be looking for Eeebuntu to be supported on all systems : laptop, netbook and desktop alike.

As the project developer said:
“Ubuntu is getting more and more trouble adjusting with every release, and if Debian unstable is right for Ubuntu, it’s certainly right for us.”

The project started in December 2007 and was founded by Steve Wood.

Chromium OS – an open-source development version of Chrome OS, which is a Linux distribution designed by Google to work primarily with web applications. In preliminary design documents, Google describes a three-tier architecture: firmware, web browser and window manager, and system-level software and userland services.

Historically, Chromium OS was using the Ubuntu-based Linux kernel for the first several releases, but have since then moved on to track the upstream mainline kernel directly, applying changes for the features and stability. The source code has been published in 2009.

Chromium OS “Vanilla” has been created by Liam McLoughlin “Hexxeh”, a 17-year-old college student from Manchester, England. He was building boots from a USB memory stick and included features that Google engineers had not yet implemented, such as support for the Java programming language.
He stopped building it in the April of 2013.

Moblin (mobile Linux) – an open source operating system and application stack for Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs), netbooks, nettops and embedded devices built on the top of Linux kernel.

The central piece of the architecture is the common layer we call “Moblin Core”, a hardware and usage model independent layer that provides one uniform way to develop such devices. Moblin Core is built on the GNOME Mobile platform, extending and enriching it with Intel open source technologies like Clutter, GUPnP, and Atom specific technologies, such as graphics, fast boot, and power saving.

Moblin 2 Core distribution is based on recent builds of Fedora and uses RPM package manager. The system uses a custom-built GNOME Mobile UI (instead of Xfce) based on OpenedHand’s Clutter, a key piece of the Maemo graphical environment, built around the X Window System.

Moblin was under development between 2007 and 2009. In 2009 Moblin was merged with Maemo, becoming MeeGo, which was hosted by the Linux Foundation, until 2011.
