PmBSD (Pigeon Mouette BSD) – a project provides a FREE, multi-platform BSD UNIX-like operating system.

PmBSD is ‘what we think a BSD is’ and was totally written from scratch. The only sources stolen by this project were stolen from OpenBSD and are a part of this website and the file sys/queue.h.

The project founder is Sylvestre Gallon.
It was under active development between 2009 and 2012.

FabBSD – a special purpose 4.4BSD-based UNIX-like operating system, designed for machine control applications. Using low-cost hardware, FabBSD can be used to control a wide array of CNC milling machines, lathes, routers, process-control and automation equipment.

A common task of FabBSD systems is the coordinated motion of machine axes, whether driven by steppers, servo-motors or cylinders (with or without software-based closed-loop control). FabBSD uses a kernel-mode trajectory planner to generate stable motion control signals (using blended S-curve velocity profiles) at high frequencies with minimal hardware requirements.

It features applications such as:
– Machine tools: CNC milling machines, lathes, routers, lasers
– Automation: Manipulators, power supplies, relays, valves, heaters
– Instrumentation: Optical encoders, thickness gauges, sensors

FabBSD’s kernel and base are forked from OpenBSD. Its machine control drivers (/sys/dev/cnc/), userland libraries (libcnc) and applications could be easily ported back to OpenBSD, NetBSD or FreeBSD with minimal patching to other parts of the kernel. The base distribution includes OpenSSH, Sudo, Binutils, GCC and GDB. The installation process is straightforward (via CD-ROM, FTP, floppies or tapes).

As of 2018, FabBSD is undergoing active development again and contributors are welcome to provide feedback or patches.

The project founder is Julien Nadeau Carriere.

CompactBSD – a set of tools that allow you to compress OpenBSD onto a small (32MB) compact flash card for use in small embedded servers. CompactBSD can be used to power wireless hot spots, which is what FatPort uses it for.

CompactBSD offers the easiest way to get OpenBSD up and running on Compact Flash-based systems such as the FatPointOEM. In order to use the ZComax 200mW PCMCIA wireless card in your FatPointOEM box, you will need to add a patch to the OpenBSD 3.1 kernel.

CompactBSD runs on an i386-class box running OpenBSD3.1, it also requires that Python 2.1.2 be installed.

The project developer is Ken Simpson.

emBSD – a stripped down version of OpenBSD. The concept for emBSD is a small foot print operating system for x86 (or other) hardware to use as little hard disk space as possible yet provide a fully functional Routing Firewall. The main driving force behind this concept is to not use a hard disk drive at all, but use off the shelf Compact Flash cards.

emBSD is a very small system designed for specific purposes. emBSD is not currently a server base OS. It is simply made to filter, control, and forward traffic within your organization. The kernel has been optimized specifically for handling large flows of traffic as well as providing extra interfaces for migrating to IPv6. An optimal emBSD system will not have moving disks inside to potentially fail. Solid-state disks are employed on the majority of our critical machines.

The project developers are Ken Rice and Truman Boyes.

CD Bootable OpenBSD firewall – the project allows you to set up a full featured OpenBSD firewall without the use of a hard disk. The system boots from a CDROM and stores configuration information on either a floppy, or a USB mass storage device, such as a “pen drive” or a USB CompactFlash reader.

The CD also contains a simple install script, to allow you populate a floppy or UMASS device with a basic firewall configuration. Simply boot the CD, select the media you wish to use, and answer some straightforward questions.

The latest version, based on OpenBSD 3.5, adds several new features. The firewall now provides PPTP VPN and a caching nameserver out of the box.

Features:
– OpenBSD 3.5 NAT Firewall using PF
– No hard disk needed
– Automated setup
– Can run with all media Read-Only
– DHCP on internal LAN
– Nameserver and Cache
– PPTP VPN

System requirements:
– x86 compatible processor
– 64M ram bare minimum (all writable filesystems are on ramdisks, and there’s no swap)
– CD-ROM drive
– floppy drive, or umass device (note the current issue with umass)
– 2 network interfaces

foaf (Firewall On A Floppy) – a very small OpenBSD based distribution which provides a firewall on one floppy disk.

This allows you to create a firewall that is based on a floppy (hence the name), and you can build it from a separate source tree. Edit the files in [foaf/config] to configure for your system. Make sure you at least edit [foaf/config/etc/pf.conf] because it has bogus entries for IP addresses, and blocks everything. Right now it is mainly for invisible bridging firewalls, but I (developer) plan to expand it to be a routing firewall.

If your desired network device (or other such device) isn’t supported on the default kernel config (FIREWALL), feel free to add your own. Take out devices that you don’t use.

The project developer is Peter Hessler, and the foaf is released under the MIT License.

ekkoBSD – a core OS offers security, stability, and flexibility to your infrastructure. As a default installation, it gives you an email server, Web Server, ssh, and several other services that would normally need to be added and secured. The goal of the ekkoBSD project is to provide a safe, secure, and simple to administer network operating system.

The project was founded and managed by Rick Collette, and coded by other programmers as well.

A concept that had been with ekkoBSD since its beginning were the implementations of “Single Servers”. These are much like the single-floppy firewalls, rescue discs, etc. found within PicoBSD.

The ekkoBSD project’s end was announced on the home page on July 18, 2004.

The last version | Released: 0.7 beta | October 2003

MicroBSD – a fork of the UNIX-like BSD operating system descendant OpenBSD 3.0, begun in July 2002. The project’s objective was to produce a free and fully secure, complete system, but with a small footprint. The first phase of its development stopped in 2002. The project was later resumed by a new group of developers, which stopped development again in 2003.

Because of violations of the BSD license the MicroBSD project has been completely removed from the internet, and all MicroBSD users are asked to remove it from their computers.

The old MicroBSD project (hosted at microbsd.com) does not exist anymore, but code from it has been incorporated into the MirOS BSD project. The last version of the old MicroBSD 0.6 project was released in October 2002.

The new MicroBSD project set its goal as trying to continue what the original MicroBSD project began. A new edition of version 0.6 – with cleaned up source code and corrected copyright statements – was released in October 2003. A beta 0.7 version was being derived from OpenBSD 3.4, but the project stalled and all development ceased that November.

MicroBSD was under development by individuals from Bulgaria and was intent on a focus toward security, development of a user interface, easy management and configuration, and the addition of Bulgarian-specific localization.

MirOS BSD – a secure operating system from the BSD family for 32-bit i386 and sparc systems. It is based on 4.4BSD-Lite (mostly OpenBSD, some NetBSD®). The MirPorts Framework is a portable ports tree to facilitate the installation of additional software. The project also releases some portable software: mksh, a pdksh-based shell; PaxMirabilis, an archiver for various formats; MirMake, a framework for building software; MirNroff, an AT&T nroff based man page (and text document) formatter; MirCksum, a flexible checksumming and hash generation tool; and some more.

MirOS is available as a BSD flavour which originated as an OpenBSD patchkit, but has grown very much on its own, though still being synchronized with the ongoing development of OpenBSD, thus inheriting most of its good security history. This variant is also called “MirBSD”, but the usage of that word to denote MirOS BSD (plus MirPorts) is deprecated.

MirOS started after some differences in opinion between Theo de Raadt, the OpenBSD project leader, and Thorsten Glaser, who is now our lead developer. The main maintainer of MirPorts is BennySiegert. There are several more persons working as contributors on the project.

The latest release of MirOS is #10semel released March 16, 2008; the latest preview of MirBSD-current is 10uB4-20160117 released January 17, 2016.
