- This project is dedicated to help improve the use of Linux on Alpha architecture.
- An operating system for mobile devices that includes middleware and key applications. It uses a monolithic (modified) Linux kernel. Supported platforms include: ARM, MIPS, Power Architecture, and x86.
- An alternative operating system for the Lego Mindstorms RCX Controller. Formerly known as LegOS - Independent LEGO Mindstorms OS.
CRUX for PowerPC
- A port for the PowerPC platform of the CRUX distribution. Latest stable release is 2.7, 2011-02-15.
Carrier Grade Linux - The Linux Foundation
- This working group has two main functions: 1) interact with network equipment providers and carriers to gather requirements and produce specifications that Linux distribution vendors can implement; and 2) take unimplemented requirements and foster development projects that will meet these requirements and assist in their upstream integration.
- A powerful open source software development environment for the creation and large-scale distributed deployment of multi-user virtual 3D applications and metaverses that are (1) persistent (2) deeply collaborative, (3) interconnected, and (4) interoperable.
- A comprehensive list of computer architectures that run on Debian. Also included is a section of architectures that run on the Linux kernel, but have not been ported to Debian at this time.
Fink - Unix Software for Macs
- A Linux/UNIX Open Source software platform for Darwin and Mac OS X. It uses the convenient Debian-based package management tools. Available in many languages
Gumstix Developer Website
- A company that produces small single-board computers. Gumstix COMs (computer-on-module) are tiny, open source platforms that can jump-start the development, proof of concept and production of any embedded device. They run on Linux and use the OpenEmbedded build environment.
L4Linux: Linux on the L4 Microkernel
- A port of the Linux kernel to the L4 kernel API. The current, maintained release is based on the 2.6x kernel; earlier versions for the 2.0x - 2.4x kernel are available, but are no longer maintained.
- A not-for-profit organization delivering free and validated Linux kernel and tools that focuses on providing a common software foundation to the embedded industry. Its chief goal is to reduce the time that it takes to bring a new ARM-powered product to market with Linux. The group's members include ARM, IBM, Freescale, TI, Ericsson, Samsung, and Canonical.
Linux for the AMD x86-64
- A community website aimed at open source developers to facilitate porting AMD64 technology support to their operating systems, applications, drivers, and development tools.
- A port of Linux to the MIPS architecture.
Linux/mac68k for Macintosh
- The goal of this project is to port Linux to the 68k-based Macintoshes (not Power Macs) and to support a wide variety of hardware. There are currently ports of the 2.2, 2.4 , and 2.6 kernels. (2008)
- Contains pointers and references to getting Linux running properly on the Sun 3/xx line of workstations/servers.
- A "Minimalist GNU for Windows", is a minimalist development environment for native Microsoft Windows applications. It provides a complete Open Source programming tool set which is suitable for the development of native MS-Windows applications, and which do not depend on any 3rd-party C-Runtime DLLs
- The mingw-w64 project is a complete runtime environment for gcc to support binaries native to Windows 64-bit and 32-bit operating systems.
- An open source platform for the development and delivery of rich Internet applications (web applications that have features and functionality of traditional desktop applications). This platform consists of the LZX programming language and the OpenLaszlo Server.
RTLinux - Real Time Linux
- RTLinux is an extension of Linux to a Real-time operating system; available as a free and a commercial version from FSMLabs.
Real Time Linux Foundation
- A non-profit corporation for the real-time Linux community. For Proceedings of recent Real-time Linux Workshops sponsored by this organization, go to http://linuxdevices.com and search their articles using the phrase - "real-time linux workshop".
- XBox on Linux; can run a full desktop computer with mouse and keyboard, a web/email box connected to a TV, a server or router or a node in a cluster. Also available in Dutch, Finnish, French, German, and Hebrew.
