There are number of people which love open source. Not just because of free, because it give awesome developing kits. I wrote this post just to show you people what’s going on in Linux world. Linux put its Kernel open for download just because of these people want to discover world. Did anyone know about Windows Kernel?

There is some Project categories related to Linux kernel or Linux.

General Projects

Hardware Port Projects

Scientific Projects

  • Name: Beowulf Project
    Website: http://www.beowulf.org/
    Contact: merk@cesdis.gsfc.nasa.gov
    Description: Beowulf is a project to produce the software for off-the-shelf clustered workstations based on commodity PC-class hardware, a high-bandwidth internal network, and the Linux operating system.
  • Name: Center for Wave Phenomena Linux Cluster Project
    Website: http://www.cwp.mines.edu/
    Contact: cwp@dix.mines.edu
    Description: CWP now has around 20 Pentiums running Linux/XFree86. The newer 200 Mhz chips crank out around 40 Mflops under gcc, with no pentium optimization and we compute on them in parallel with PVM and MPI.
  • Name: KLAT2
    Website: http://aggregate.org/KLAT2/
    Contact: Dr. Hank Deitz
    KLAT2 — the Kentucky Linux Athalon Testbed, a project at the University of Kentucky, is a 64+2 700MHz Athlon cluster using a variety of system hardware and software performance tricks, including a 264-NIC + 9 switch implementation of the new Flat Neighborhood network topology.
  • Name: LAMDI Project
    Website: http://gasnet.med.yale.edu/lamdi/
    Contact: harms@mbnet.mb.ca
    Description: LAMDI is a proposed platform to provide an interface for software applications that can capture and store hospital patient data, do realtime model ing of data, control drug infusions, and have a customizeable user interface.
  • Name: Linux-Equipped Astronauts Project (LEAP)
    Website: http://www.cantrip.org/leap.html
    Contact: ncm@nospam.cantrip.org
    Description: Seeks to provide ports to Linux of all the tools used by the Space Shuttle and International Space Station astronauts.
  • Name: Linux Super Page
    Website: http://shimizu-lab.dt.u-tokai.ac.jp/lsp.html
    Contact: nshimizu_AT_keyaki.cc.u-tokai.ac.jp
    Description: This is a project to make Linux to use super-page feature of some processors. The matrix transpose benchmark runs 4 to 5 times faster than the normal kernel on an Alpha 21264A-667MHz machine. 18 percent higher performance is achieved on SPEC fp2K with this patch.
  • Name: Parallel Processing Using Linux
    Website: http://yara.ecn.purdue.edu/~pplinux
    Contact: pplinux@ecn.purdue.edu
    Four types of parallel processing are under development: (1) SMP Pentium systems in which multiple processors share a single memory and bus interface within a single computer, (2) a group of machines interconnected by a network to form a parallel-processing cluster, (3) a Linux system as a “host” for a specialized attached parallel processor, and (4) SIMD parallelism within a register, which is facilitated by the MMX (MultiMedia eXtensions).
  • Name: SETI@Home
    Website: http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/
    Description: SETI@home is a scientific experiment that harnesses the power of millions of Internet-connected computers in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). You can participate by running a free program that downloads and analyzes radio telescope data. There’s a small but captivating possibility that your computer will detect the faint murmur of a civilization beyond Earth.
  • Name: The SHRIMP Project
    Website: http://www.cs.princeton.edu/shrimp/
    Contact: skumar@cs.princeton.edu
    Description: SHRIMP (Scalable, High-Performance, Really Inexpensive Multi-Processor) is a parallel machine being designed and built in the Computer Science Department at Princeton University. Shrimp is built from highly-integrated, commodity parts. The computing nodes of SHRIMP are Pentium PCs, and the routing network is the same one used in the Intel Paragon. A network interface card is being designed to connects the PCs to the routing network, and software is also being designed to make SHRIMP a fully usable multicomputer.
