Scientific – a Linux distribution built on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and addressed to scientific institutions. The development of the operating system since 2004 is managed by the European Center for Nuclear Research CERN (Switzerland) and the American Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab). From version 7.x, the main sponsor and coordinator of the project is Fermilab.

System images are available as installation and live media for the i386 and x86_64 hardware architecture. Live versions are equipped with KDE, GNOME and IceWM desktops.

– Provide a stable, scalable, and extensible operating system for scientific computing
– Support scientific research by providing methods and procedures for enabling the integration of scientific applications with the operating environment
– Use the free exchange of ideas, designs, and implementations to prepare a computing platform for the next generation of scientific computing

As James Amundson, the Head of Scientific Computing Division announced (April 22, 2019), the Scientific Linux will be discontinued.

Morphix-NLP – a Live CD Linux distribution with a rich collection of Natural Language Processing (NLP) applications. Though the field of NLP has undergone decades of intensive research, software designed in the NLP community are often scattered around the net and are not known by the larger computer user community. Consequently, most NLP software can not be found in mainstream distributions even years after the first public release.

The purpose of this CD is twofold:
– In the first place, it tries to break the software acquisition and installation barrier facing many researchers and students in the NLP community by providing most NLP related software on a single Live CD.
– In the second place, the CD can be used to promote Natural Language Processing among average computer users. Simply plugging the CD into cd-drive and watching some NLP applications in action, most users will get some knowledge of Natural Language Processing and what NLP can do.

One goal of Morphix-NLP is to include as much NLP software as possible. However, NLP includes a broad range of topics and there are new software emerge every day. It very likely that some great NLP applications are not included just because the maintainer did not notice it.

Here is a general guideline on choosing software to include:
– Only software with a license that permits freely redistribution and unlimited usage can be included. Academic-free license is ok. Please bear in mind that Open Source project will always have a higher privilege for inclusion than Close Source, binary only distributed software.
– Commercial software, 30-day trial software, limit-function demo software will not be included. This is not a demo CD shipped with magazines.

The project developer is Zhang Le.
