Breeze::OS©® includes our proprietary web enabled desktop, called Breeze::OS Desktop©®.
The Breeze::OS©® Desktop is based on the use of plugins, which can be sent across the web.
Our projects, both open-source and commercial, including upcoming ones, such as; BrzDrive©®. Have a look at some of these projects here.
Services designed both for the open source community and enterprises. Have a look at some of these services here.
A Breeze::OS Live 32/64-bit version of our distro, which can be run from a DVD or a USB stick. Breeze::OS Live Edition does not have to be installed to a computer hard drive. You can write it to a USB key; and, use it as a rescue system, or as a permanent utility system, giving you access to the web, and the ability to store your modifications permanently. Download the latest releases from SourceForge. Or, buy from our shop.
mistral is derived from mkinitrd from Slackware, and is used to build an initial ramdisk or runself archive.
An initial ramdisk is a very small set of files that are loaded into RAM and 'mounted' (as initramfs doesn't use a filesystem) as the kernel boots (before the main root filesystem is mounted).
An initrd is used when kernel modules need to be loaded before mounting the root partition. Usually these modules are required to support the root filesystem (ext3, reiserfs, xfs), or perhaps the controller that the hard drive is attached to (SCSI, RAID, etc). Essentially, there are so many different options available in modern Linux kernels that it isn't practical to try to ship many different kernels to try to cover everyone's needs. It's a lot more flexible to ship a generic kernel and a set of kernel modules for it.
A runself archive is a self-extracting shell archive with a built-in executable script. The runself script is derived from the script Makeself version 2.4.0. All runself archives are dependent on the mistral infra-structure.
The command set of mistral is not compatible with the Slackware mkinitrd command set. If run without options, mistral will build an initrd image, based on your host machine's installation.
A simple audio/music server using GStreamer, Alsa, or BrzSnd as the main driving backend; and, the SSP, DAAP, and SRTP protocols for communication.
Tsert.Com Search©® or BrzDig©® is a stand-alone customizable search engine developed in C++. It indexes contents of Web sites, and local disks or file systems, and allows searching for information using keywords. Tsert.Com Search©® technology is used in the Breeze::OS©® desktop and Tsert.Com Ferret©®. see more details here. See latest version here.
A NAS version of our distro, derived either from NAS4Free or FreeNAS, it has the added features of running a modified security framework based on SMACK or Capsicum; as well as, the DawnNG HTTP server. The SCMP, SSP, DAAP, and SRTP protocols are used for communication.
A templating engine which uses embedded tags, to expand a given document template into a fully notationed version of a document.
The tags are referred to as Tsert.com tags or emtags; and are derived from URIs. They have, therefore, a built-in recursive nature. There are several types of tags, a URI, ACTION, BLOCK, TEXT, TAG, and CUSTOM tag. They all include a conditional structure, based on retrieved key/value pairs. There are several types of ACTION tags, a GET, FRAGMENT, SELECT, SELECT_TAG, RETR, RETR_TAG action tag. There are a set of reserved tags, such as, locale, username, password, country, title, description, date, time, etc..
An init system to replace the old sysV init application. It features a single configuration file, parallel service startup, a control application called brzctl, and the ability to specify rc.d shell scripts, XML document fragments, or simple shell commands to start or stop the service, for service startup and management.
BrzISO is the Breeze::OS application which allows you to create and burn a LiveCD release of our distribution onto CDRom or USB flash drive. BrzISO uses the live-media scripts, which were created by modifying Slackware LiveCD scripts, allowing the retrieval of packages from a local or remote mirror. See screenshot.
A natural language system which allows, verbal, gestual, or typed commands to be issued to a computer system.
The SCM engine is used to parse the typed text, and transform it into a computerese-based command map. The computerese-based command map is semantic in nature; and, comprises the set of actions, actors, objects, and their attributes which were collected from the semantic content extracted from the user entered data.
The command map is used to generate a set of actions, specific to the target system, in order to perform the specified user command. This command-map based approach can be used to develop a completely generic command-response engine; which can be embedded into any computer system; and, will also be used to develop our natural language based script, t-escript.
The Tsert.Com Integrated Test Environment or Grade©® is a black-box oriented testing enviroment. It helps administer the creation and execution of testsuites, for a variety of software; such as, protocol entities like modems and switches, and other communication hardware. It also helps test database schemas by providing an automated way of generating database test data, see more details Grade Life-Cycle.
Brzpkg is the Breeze::OS package management tool. It is used to unpack, install, update, and remove packages. The packages must be Breeze::OS packages for all commands; except for the install command, where a package from the derived distribution can be specified. See manual page.
Brzctl is the Breeze::OS rc.d service manager tool. It is used to add, append, remove, start, stop, reload, enable, or disable services. It is also used to set, get, delete, or show metadata or settings entries for a specific service. See manual page.
Brzinst is the Breeze::OS installer which manages the installation of our distribution onto one of your drive or drive partition. It helps you partition your drive, setup your locale and timezone, con‐ figure your hostname and network, configure rc.d/init.d services, install packages, etc.. See manual page.
Brzpkg-gtk is the graphical user interface frontend to the Breeze::OS package management tool brzpkg. It is used to unpack, install, update, and remove packages. See manual page.
Brzhud is a Conky-like Head-Up Display monitor application developed for Breeze::OS. It displays statistics for network, drives, memory, cpu, battery, etc.; as well as, alarms, reminders, audio playback, and weather updates. See example theme configuration based on S-Expressions.
Brzidx is a simple indexer and search engine, which wraps around a Unix locate backend and a Perl and Xapian-based backend for the Breeze::OS desktop environment.
