PlumpOS is a bootable openMosix cluster node on a CD. It was designed to have very low overhead to allow for better performance over heavier openMosix CD distros like ClusterKnoppix. Some of the cool features of PlumpOS: * Bootable ISO less than 10 megabytes in size! Can fit onto a mini CD or business card CD. * Loads into RAM and ejects the CD so you can boot multiple nodes quickly. * Very simple design, so it's very easy to modify to your needs. * No configuration required; just pick the openMosix kernel you want to use and go! PlumpOS was originally based on the Mosix CD distribution by Jean-David Marrow called clump/os. The boot process has been created and re-created so many times it doesn't resemble clump/os anymore, but PlumpOS still strives for the same simplistic principles clump/os had.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
