Bluewhite – a complex, reliable, scalable open source pure 64-bit Linux distribution that runs on 64-bit single and multicore servers and workstations.

This project was started in May 2006 and was built from Slackware – current sources using the existing 64-bit multilib toolchain from the Slamd64 Linux to create a new 64-bit non-multilib toolchain in order to build the rest of the programs.

Apart from the standard edition there are live versions, namely LiveDVD and miniLive. These versions have their base root in the standard edition and offer extra packages created by the Bluewhite Linux community . The purpose of these live versions is to serve as a preview to those who wish to try the standard edition but don’t want to install it yet, as well as providing some new features.

Bluewhite Linux LiveDVD and miniLive are targeted toward beginners. A new distribution tends to make people skeptical, so I wanted to give them a chance to test Bluewhite Linux without installing it by using a bootable media. They include Bluewhite Linux standard edition plus some extra packages.

The project founder is Attila Craciun.

NimbleX – a small but versatile operating system which is able to boot from CD, flash memory (USB pens or Mp3 players) and even from the network. It runs entirely from a CD, USB or network so it doesn’t require installation or even much hardware.

NimbleX was designed to be versatile, user friendly, very fast and most importantly indestructible.

The key features of NimbleX are:
– Very fast even on slow disks. The OS is decompressed on the fly so IO is minimized.
– Indestructible: The OS is read only and only the changes get written to RAM or disk.
– Full featured. Out of the box NimbleX comes with over 1000 packages.

NimbleX is based on Slax and Slackware Linux.
The project developer is Bogdan Rădulescu.
