The last version | Released: 0.7 | April 7, 2011

CTKArch – a minimalistic Arch Linux setup (and not a distribution), that comes with a set of carefully selected applications and provides maximum hardware support, exclusively using free open-source software.

It aims at providing the indispensable base applications for a desktop installation, while saving time on the installation process by autoconfiguring the system, in the same way you would have done by hand.

The included applications are chosen among the lighter available, yet keeping the interface user-friendly and the benefits of a rolling-release distribution: CTKArch has become the running proof that this is possible!

Its base principle is to leave the users with a choice, when there is one: applications are only included if their usefulness isn’t questionable.

CTKArch features a powerful add-on system, and support for a persistent data partition, that allow to easily add custom applications to the live system, leaving the base ISO devoid of any piece of software some people may not appreciate.

The CTKArch live CD/USB can be installed, for instance on your hard disk or memory card.

Once installed, it becomes a classical Arch Linux installation, with applications for web browsing, e-mail, chat, FTP, file-management & archiving, office, image, audio and video viewing & edition, and CD burning; just as if you had spent your day choosing them.

The live iso provides support for English and French languages out of the box.

GoBang Linux – a light and fast operating system based on Ubuntu repositories.

The default environment is built on the Openbox window manager. G.B.L allows you to easily and quickly customize your system to suit your needs. ISO images are not issued regularly and contain alternate installation CDs.

The idea to create GoBang OS was born out of the need for rapid, lightweight operating system that aims to provide an alternative look at the OS.
The system allows a large amount of software installations, and complete control over the appearance. The GoBang Project aims nature of information and education.

The idea for GoBang came about in November 2012. At the beginning system ISO was published only in one language (Polish) and pointing to a small group of students, studying at the “Administration of the Operating Systems “. As the education program do not provide deeper discussions about the alternative system solutions from the family of operating systems Linux and Unix and most of the issues are based on the Microsoft products, I (developer) decided to take care of this problem and start promoting solutions based on codes such as open end free source.

U-Lite (formerly: Ubuntulite) – a lightweight Linux distribution, based on Ubuntu, designed to run on old and low-resource machines. It is intended for users of legacy systems, not just to make a small linux distro.

So to this end the Operating system needs to be:
– Easily used by people with minimal computer skills
– Usable on old or resurrected computers, and
– Able to satisfy a typical user’s requirement of applications and functionality.

These are the three core aims of the Ubuntulite project.

While this is still subject to some change, Ubuntulite will come with: Openbox, ROX-Filer, fbpannel, menu, Kazehakase, Sylpheed, Gaim, XMMS, Abiword, GNUmeric, and mtpaint.

Ubuntulite should run well on a Pentium (75 MHz), equivalent or better, with 32 MB or more RAM.
