This Web site collects useful links to UNIX resources. I used
to keep some of these as Web browser bookmarks, but it made more
sense to make them more widely available here.
Unix command index:
a cross-referenced list of commands and operating systems that supply them,
together with a
list of universally available commands.
ADIOS (Automated Download and Installation of Operating Systems) Project
at the University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia and associated
ADIOS supports User-Mode Linux, which allows nested system images, giving
access to multiple Linux flavors on one system (see also

Heirloom Documentation Tools:
This package provides troff, nroff, and related utilities to
format manual pages and other documents for output on
terminals and printers. They are portable and enhanced
versions of the utilities released by Sun as part of Solaris,
which are a variant of ditroff, which, in turn, descends to
the historical Unix troff that generated output for the C/A/T

Interactive UNIX (SVR3.2-based) [discontinued]
a new open-source operating system designed to be highly
reliable, flexible, and secure. This new OS is extremely
small, with the part that runs in kernel mode under 4000 lines
of executable code. The parts that run in user mode are
divided into small modules, well insulated from one another.
NexentaOS is a complete GNU-based open source operating system
built on top of the OpenSolaris kernel and runtime.
