386BSD – a derived from 4.3BSD, the first open source Berkeley UNIX operating system. It was the progenitor of Linux, iOS, and Android. Beginning with “A Modest Proposal” in 1989, 386BSD broke from proprietary systems by having publicly accessible code and documentation.

386BSD Release 0.0 was distributed in 1993 in tandem to the popular “Porting Unix to the 386” article series published in Dr. Dobb’s Journal.
Release 0.1 quickly followed, enhanced with contributions throughout the globe.

386BSD Release 1.0, aka Jolix, was a break from earlier Berkeley UNIX systems through use of a modular architecture. 386BSD Release 2.0 built upon the modular framework to create self-healing components. Each release introduced novel mechanisms from role-based security to polymorphic protocols.

386BSD.org provides the opportunity to interact with the original source, articles and supporting materials, and a live demo of 386BSD Release 2.0.

386BSD is a mother of free BSD systems today, such as: BSD/386, NetBSD, FreeBSD, BSD/OS, Darwin, OpenBSD and others.

The project authors are Lynne and William Jolitz.

The last version | Released: 1.0.25 | October 14, 2009

Caos Linux – an independent, RPM based Linux distribution developed by the CAOS Foundation. The CAOS Linux Project was first initated because of the need for an openly managed, RPM based version of Linux. CAOS NSA (Node, Server, Appliance) pursues the “sweet spot” concept for a Linux distribution.

CAOS Linux is designed to run on all x86_64 and i386 based hardware ranging from clusters and servers to production level appliances to personal desktops and laptops. Scientific research labs, public agencies, ISP’s, private enterprise, virtualization and cloud computing ventures will find CAOS Linux to be an integral component to their operation.

CAOS NSA focuses on being a lightweight, fast, efficient, stable, and secure distribution of Linux that is appropriate for servers, compute nodes, network appliances, and even the latest desktop and laptop computers.

Supporting a wide variety of software, CAOS Linux is based on the best aspects of GNU/Linux and has full binary compatibility with the most popular enterprise distribution of Linux.

The CAOS Linux installer would be found easy to use by both an experienced admin or a Linux newcomer. Users can either have a fully automated install (including HD partitioning) or they can take full control from the install prompt. The automated CAOS Linux installer, Cinch, is a very user friendly, written from scratch and open to use by other distributions. Your CAOS system has the advantage of grabbing the latest packages from our online repository during installation, guaranteeing your system is up to date. Post-installation configuration is simple through either Sidekick, our server administration Swiss Army Knife, manually, or via the web using an industry compatible webmin tool.

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.

Goals:
– 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.

EON ZFS Storage

The last version | Released: 151a9 | December 29, 2015

EON ZFS Storage – an embedded Operating system/Networking (EON), RAM based live ZFS NAS appliance.

EON turns your hardware and disks, into an enterprise featured ZFS storage appliance. It is the first embedded Solaris ZFS (Zettabyte File System) NAS (Network Attached Storage) distribution based on OpenSolaris.

It is a memory (RAM) based live/install image which runs from CD/DVD, USB or CF (compact flash) and Disk on Module. EON delivers a high performance 32/64-bit storage solution built on ZFS, using regular/consumer disks which eliminates the use of costly RAID arrays, controllers and volume management software.

EON focuses on using a small memory footprint so it can run from RAM while maximizing the remaining free memory (L1 ARC) for ZFS performance. Running from RAM adds the advantage of being one hard disk greener in power consumption and removes the OS install disk as a point of failure. And if your hardware fails, no costly measures are needed to get your data. Simply attach the disks to another machine and with a ZFS capable operating system or EON.

Features:
– Simple and Secure CLI (command line interface) administration. Future web-based graphical/browser user interface administration
– Supports ZFS, iSCSI (target and client initiator), NFS, CIFS (Sun Microsystems Implementation) or Samba, SFTP, SSH, NTP, IP filtering, Rsync
– Supported RAID-0, RAID-1, RAID-10, RAID-Z, RAID-Z2, RAID-Z3
– Supports client OS, Windows 200x/XP/Vista, 7, Mac OS X(Leopard, Snow Leopard, LION), Unix and Linux
– Transparent in-band, dynamic filesystem compression (LZJB or GZIP algorithms)
– Capable of expanding the zpool by expanding each disk in the pool (since snv_117)
– Thin provisioned (green) file systems
– Unlimited files, links, directories and snapshots versions(also known as version-ing or read only clones/copies)
– Copy-On-Write (writable) clones
– Link aggregation (teaming network interfaces)
– User Groups and Quotas
– IPfilter module and application to control/restrict network access.
– DTrace, Perl and PHP
– Deduplication (since EON 0.59.9/snv 129)
– Hot spares
– SSD acceleration

Eclipse/BSD – an operating system which is the basis for testing the Quality of Service (QoS) that is being developed at the Information Sciences Research Center at Bell Labs, Lucent Technologies. Eclipse/BSD is based on FreeBSD version 3.4., and is compatible with FreeBSD, supporting the same system calls, protocols, drivers and applications.

The system developers have implemented hierarchical proportional share cpu, disk and link schedulers, the /reserv file system providing an API to manipulate “reservations” and a tagging mechanism for the association of reservations with schedulable operations.

Eclipse/BSD is being used to guarantee QoS to server applications, and in particular to differentiate the performance of different web sites hosted on the same platform.

The demand to provide Quality of Service (QoS) guarantees is increasing with the need to run multiple server applications, such as audio and video media servers and web servers, and host services for multiple entities (e.g., companies, individuals) on the same platform. QoS requirements may be client-based, service-based, contentbased, and so on.

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.
