Hardware Ports

Also have a look at current ports of Linux OS, which lists current Linux hardware ports and includes lots of links to porting projects.

Kernel / Device Drivers / Filesystems



Organizations and Groups

Linux and Free or Open Source Software

  • Arena, a free web browser project, coordinated by Yggdrasil Computing.
  • Artificial Intelligence Desktop Interface.
  • WineHQ, the Windows emulator headquarters has all sorts of information about Wine (a MS-Windows emulator for x86-Unix systems).
  • The Purdue Compiler Construction Tool Set is available for Linux.
  • Linux Software Map, a database of software developed and ported to Linux, with search engines at Boutell.Com.
  • Objex (Ox), a full object model for Linux. The system will allow the user (and the programmer) to do anything in an object-oriented paradigm.
  • K Desktop Environment (KDE), a powerful graphical desktop environment.
  • Linux Phone Project.
  • Mnemonic, a WWW browser project.
  • The Linux Game SDK Project, is creating a full development environment under Linux for professional video games developers.
  • How to program a computer using the oo2c Oberon-2 Compiler on Linux.
  • The Linux OPaC Project, a C++ GUI library is being ported to Linux.
  • The MIT Wearable Computing Project runs Linux on their wearable computers.
  • Berlin, a next-generation windowing system.
  • The Linux-GGI Project, a kernel-level graphics driver.
  • Willows TWIN Libraries, a cross-platform implementation of the Windows APIs.
  • The GNOME Desktop Project (GNU Network Object Model Environment), a project to develop a free and complete set of user friendly applications and desktop tools, similar to CDE and KDE but based entirely on free software.
  • egcs, an experimental step in the development of GCC, the GNU C compiler.
  • The Linux Lab Project (LLP), a project to help people with development of data collection and process control software for Linux.
  •, products and services for Linux.
  • wxWindows, a C++ GUI framework.
  • The Nirvana Project, a GUI framework project.
  • PPA for the masses, drivers for HP PPA (Printing Performance Architecture) DeskJet printers, such as the 720C, 820C, and 1000C.
  • GUIDE, the Gnu Utilities Integrated Development Environment.
  • FreeCASE, a free CASE development project.
  • Linux ICQ page.
  • Trove, a project to create an open-source distributed archiving system for use at large software archive sites (such as metalab).
  • The Freefire Project, a project to help the development of free security solutions.
  • The Linux Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) project.
  • The FreeTDS Project, an open source implementation of the TDS (Tabular DataStream) protocol.
  • Simple DirectMedia Layer (SDL), a multi-platform library to make it easier to write games.
  • Digital Image Library Project, a project to create an online image database and archive.
  • ht://Dig, Internet search engine software.
  • Various open source projects at SGI.
  • phpGroupWare, webbased groupware application - including calendar, email, todo list, addressbook, trouble ticket system, file manager, new headlines, and more.
  • KBasic is a programming language which brings a complete BASIC to KDE. It will include an IDE with a form designer and a complete binding to KDE-like controls and other features.
  • Java on Linux Developer FAQ.
  • The Van, a migration tool from Windows onto Linux.
  • freeVSD is a fully optimised, Open Source web hosting platform for Linux. Allows ISPs to create multiple virtual servers on a physical machine, each with it's own admin and set of applications (Apache, sendmail, etc.).
  • Lemick Basic, a basic-like programming language/environment.
  • Programmer's Toolbox Videos; these videos are free as in speech (but not beer), meant to help people who are already programmers expand their boundaries and go further into the technology they use. Useful w/any operating system, but Linux is focused on. Videos are VideoCDs recorded on CDRs.

Research and Scientific Groups


  • Project Andromeda, a MkLinux distibution project.
  • The Linux Router Project, a networking centric mini-distribution of Linux. LRP is small enough to fit on a single 1.44MB floppy disk, and makes building and maintaining routers, terminal servers, and typically embedded networking systems next to trivial.
  • hal91, a minimal Linux system installed on one floppy.
  • Stampede Linux.
  • Linux-Mandrake, a meta-distribution based on Red Hat Linux with KDE and other enhancements.
  • Trinux.
  • Monkey.
  • tomsrtbt, a Linux distribution on a single floppy disk.
  • MaxOS Linux, a full Linux distribution featuring gui installer, auto partitioning-resizing tools, Rieser file system and a Desktop.
