Bootable linux distro for Geospatial Applications
OSGeo-Live is a self-contained bootable DVD, USB thumb drive or Virtual Machine based on Lubuntu that allows you to try a wide variety of open source geospatial software without installing anything. It is composed entirely of free software, allowing it to be freely distributed, duplicated and passed around. It provides pre-configured applications for a range of geospatial use cases, including storage, publishing, viewing, analysis and manipulation of data. It also contains sample datasets and documentation.

birgHPC is a Linux Live CD distribution based on PelicanHPC and Debian Live. birgHPC features automated cluster configuration on PCs in the same network specifically for bioinformatics and molecular dynamics. If you are looking for CUDA support, try birgHPCC (https://sourceforge.net/projects/birghpcc/) If you use birgHPC in your work, please cite us: Teong Han Chew, Kwee Hong Joyce-Tan, Farizuwana Akma and Mohd Shahir Shamsir. birgHPC: creating instant computing clusters for bioinformatics and molecular dynamics. Bioinformatics. Volume 27, Issue 9. pp 1320-1321. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btr109
The project purport to create THE FIRST AUTOPILOT FOR CARS, using a technology called Intel OPENCV and Linux.
Rapid CUDA Cluster Deployment
birgHPCC is a major improvement over birgHPC (http://sourceforge.net/projects/birghpc/). While retaining the major functions of the original birgHPC, including automated computing cluster conversion and auto slots detection, the new version (birgHPCC) is capable of creating and configuring a compute unified device architecture (CUDA) computing cluster, hence the extra “C” in the name. In addition to the increase in image size (less than 2 gigabytes) and a new Linux base (previously Debian, now Ubuntu), CUDA-capable bioinformatics software programs, such as NAMD, HOOMD-blue, VMD, GPU-HMMER and GPU-BLAST, are pre-installed in birgHPCC, along with the CUDA driver, libraries and software development kit (SDK). In short, birgHPCC is the world's first CUDA-ready, bioinformatics-based, live DVD.
