ScorchOS – an independently developed 32 bit operating system that began operating in 2008 as a fork of “Bran’s Kernel Development”. The project does not offer ready-made live/install images, but rather a script to build your own operating system from source packages.

ScorchOS is being developed to enable programmers to learn more about how kernels and drivers work, and potential hobby kernel developers will find useful resources and code.

Features:
– Basic Memory Management (IDT, GDT, ISR)
– Interrupt Management
– VGA Driver
– Keyboard Driver
– Shell
– Cross-compiler support

The project developer is Bobby Moss.

Architecture: x86_64
Based on: Slackware
Wikipedia: Slamd64
Media: Install CD/DVD
The last version | Released: 12.2 | February 2, 2009

Slamd64 – the first unofficial port of Slackware to the x86-64 architecture. The project started (the first alpha release) in January 2005, and finished in 2009. Support for 32-bit binaries was removed for the 11.0 release, but was reintroduced in the 12.0 release.

The latest version of Slamd64 12.2 features packages such as:
– Linux kernel 2.6.27.7
– GCC 4.2.4
– Apache HTTPD 2.2.10, with SSL support and PHP 5.2.8
– KDE 3.5.10
– XFCE 4.4.3
– Mozilla Firefox 3.0.5
– Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0.0.19
– Sun Java (JRE and JDK) 6u11

Slamd64 12.2 provides seamless FHS-compliant 32-bit compatibility, via a multilib system (/lib for 32-bit libraries and /lib64 for 64-bit libraries). This provides easier and increased support for both existing 32-bit software (in most cases, you can just install a package designed for Slackware with no special work needed), and for 64-bit binaries too (which require /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 to be present) such as the NVidia drivers, without requiring compatability symlinks which clutter the root directory and remove the separation of 32 and 64-bit binaries.

The project founder is Fred Emmott.

Feliz – a bootable live CD which offers the quickest and easiest way to install Arch Linux and a selection of software from the Arch repos.

Feliz purpose is to speed up installation of Arch Linux, plus a desktop environment and a ‘shopping list’ of extras like web browsers, office software and programming tools. An initialising phase gathers essential data of location, username, and passwords, and works with the user to set up their partitioning and desktop environment requirements. The script then runs without further intervention to the end.

It starts a live session of Arch Linux, and runs the script. All you have to do is follow the prompts. Installation follows closely the Arch Wiki beginners’ guide, and hopefully you will understand something of the process by the time it has finished; you may even like to try a manual installation with the help of the Wiki.

The live system works in text mode.

Feliz is a successor of Achoo! project, both founded and developed by Elizabeth Mills.

Gentoox – a specialist Linux distribution based on Gentoo Linux, created for the Xbox – a home video game console.

It retains all the features of the original (portage, sysvinit etc…) but has a patch system created from the ground up, which is specifically designed for Gentoox. “Magic” allows users to install new software, upgrade their kernel and fix bugs. To learn more about magic, run “magic usage” once you have installed Gentoox.

Gentoox runs along side games – you get 3 choices during installation: E, F and Native. Both E and F create a loopback filesystem meaning that none of your drives are formatted during installation (except for cache partitions). If you choose “Native”, then your F: partition is formatted to ReiserFS (making it inaccessible to Xbox applications).

Gentoox can be loaded via a .xbe file, or from a Cromwell based BIOS (which can be flashed to your modchip during installation). When using E or F installations, you are totally risk free – if you don’t like Gentoox, simply delete all the files it installs (about 7 in total) and its gone.

There are three versions of Gentoox: Pro Edition, Home Edition and Media Center Edition. All three are 100% free and opensource, the difference between Home and Pro is that the Home Edition has many software packages preinstalled and preconfigured for instant usability straight out of the box where as Pro doesn’t even have a graphical user interface let alone any “useful” applications. Pro is a bare minimum installation for booting the system, the entire customization of the OS is left in the user’s hands with Pro. Media Center edition is more of a “Plugin” than a separate distribution. It allows you to have a Media Center along with Gentoox Home or Pro.

The project developer is Thomas Pedley.

Inferno – an operating system designed for building distributed and networked systems on a wide variety of devices and platforms. Inferno was based on the experience gained with Plan 9 from Bell Labs, and currently being developed by Vita Nuova. Applications for this system are written in the Limbo language. The name of the system and some related programs (including Styx, Limbo) come from the Dante’s Divine Comedy.

Inferno can run as a user application on top of an existing operating system or as a stand alone operating system. Most of the popular operating systems and processor architectures are supported:
– Host Operating Systems
– Windows NT/2000/XP
– Irix
– Linux
– MacOS X
– FreeBSD
– Solaris
– Plan 9

Inferno applications are written in Limbo®, a modern, safe, modular, concurrent programming language with C-like syntax. It is more powerful than C but considerably easier to understand and debug than C++ or Java. It is easy to express the concurrency in the physical world directly in Limbo’s syntax. Any Inferno application will run identically on all Inferno platforms.

High level security is an important part of the Inferno system. By using one standard protocol for all network communication, security can be focused on one point and provided at a system level. Inferno offers full support for authenticated, encrypted connections using a certificate based user identification scheme and variety of algorithms.

Inferno 4 was released in 2005 as free software.

Founded in March 2000, Vita Nuova Holdings Ltd is an operating systems and application development company specializing in technologies for distributed applications on network devices and embedded systems.
