Trustix Secure Linux – a Linux distribution intended for use on servers and focused on security and stability.

Trustix Secure Linux includes the open standards based SoftWare UPdater, SWUP, which keeps all software packages up-to-date, resolves library dependencies and integrates public key cryptography to ensure safety and security.

Trustix was created by Trustix AS in 1997, but went bankrupt in 2003.
Comodo Group bought the assets in November 2003. Shortly thereafter Comodo announced the end of the free version of Trustix Secure Linux.

After 2005, Trustix Secure Linux continues to be maintained by a very small team of developers in India.
By late 2007 Comodo announced that it will discontinue all distribution, updates and direct support for Trustix Secure Linux effective December 31, 2007.

The latest version 4.8.1 is a fully-featured, secure and has advanced capabilities including the intuitive Xsentry easy-to-use administration graphical user interface with WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) front end which has drag and drop security policy deployment.

Maemo – a Linux based operating system and mobile platform from the Finnish communications and information technology corporation, Nokia. Software applications designed to run on the Maemo platform are developed by the Maemo Community, a nonprofit, open source community sponsored by Nokia.

Maemo is a modified version of the Debian GNU/Linux distribution, reconfigured for mobile devices. It uses libraries from the GNOME project, the Matchbox window manager and the GTK-based Hildon framework as its GUI and application framework. The GUI uses the GTK+ toolkit and Hildon user interface widgets and API.

Maemo operating system is designed for Nokia Internet Tablets, which feature very similar specifications to Nokia’s high-end N-series and E-series cellphones, with TI OMAP ARM SoCs, large screens, and expandable internal storage.

Maemo comes with a number of built-in applications such as Mozilla-based MicroB browser, Macromedia Flash player, Gizmo5, and Skype.
More applications can be installed from a 3rd party sources, via “Application manager”, or APT and dpkg.

At the Mobile World Congress in February 2010, it was announced that the Maemo project would be merging with Moblin to create the MeeGo mobile software platform. Despite that, the Maemo community continued to be active, and in late 2012 Nokia began transferring Maemo ownership to the newly established Hildon Foundation.

The last version | Released: 0.3.7 | October 9, 2001

AtheOS – a free and open-source desktop operating system initially intended as an AmigaOS clone. AtheOS currently run on Intel, AMD and other compatible processors and support the Intel Multi Processor architecture.

AtheOS is not meant to be a new Unix clone (like Linux and *BSD) but a new clean desktop OS. It does support large parts of the POSIX standard and hence are able to run most of the UNIX CLI tools and it comes with a standard UNIX shell (BASH) but this does not compromise anything in AtheOS as a desktop OS. AtheOS have a integrated GUI that works in conjunction with the kernel and various other components to create a complete and consistent system.

The AtheOS GUI consists of two main components: An application server and a dll providing a C++ interface between the server and the application. The GUI is therefore programmed through a C++ API providing windows containing a hierarchy of widgets that all have their own graphical environment.

The kernel was written from scratch. It supports SMP (Symmetric Multi Processing), has a built-in network TCP/IP stack.

The system was under development between 1994 and 2001 by Kurt Skauen.

There is a fork based on AtheOS called Syllable.
