Super OS Super OS 11.10: same aesthetics as Ubuntu Super OS (formerly: Super Ubuntu) is a version of Ubuntu 11.10 with added software and tools, with the goal of making it more usable, in particular for users without an internet connection. Features: Screenshots Super OS 11.10 Super OS with the default interface, Unity 3D App Runner, run any program/binary/script with 2 clicks Installing drivers without an internet connection (they are being "downloaded" from a local folder) Puppy Linux These are extraordinary goals, yet Puppy comes close to achieving them all. The fundamental reason is that Puppy has been built from scratch, file-by-file, and is not based on any other Linux distribution. One of the most amazing features of Puppy is the range of powerful applications yet such tiny size ...and the speed.

Thinstation Thinstation is a basic and small, yet very powerful, Open Source thin client operating system supporting all major connectivity protocols: Citrix ICA, NoMachine NX, 2X ThinClient, Microsoft Windows terminal services (RDP, via RDesktop), VMWare Horizon View, Cendio ThinLinc, Tarantella, X, telnet, tn5250, VMS terminal and SSH (No special configuration of the application servers is needed to use Thinstation). Thinstation is mainly intended for schoolroom, office, company or department use, but can be used at home (eg. for a silent PC in the bedroom that 'runs' XP on your workstation in the back room). While Thinstation is based on Linux, users may actually never see Linux at all.

Never touched Open Solaris, probably never will... I'm sticking to my config-file-orientated slackware. Get one of those up and running (takes a lot of headaches) and you'll never have to touch it again. by taranasus Jun 20
