Portable System for installing many Linux Distros on to a Pen drive
This project provides a Live DVD for the multibootusb program, for installing multiple Linux Distros on to a single Pen drive and able to boot from it. This makes the program ready to use on the go on any system without installing it. It is faster to start this system through VirtualBox, then the DVD Drive. This .iso file can also be written on to a small dedicated pen drive ( ~ 1 GB ) through this DVD's multibootusb program and further used for writing linux images on to other pen drives ( not on the same ! ) thereby making everything portable. Note: Click "+ Other Locations" on the file manager for opening local disks, while browsing for images to write through this dvd's multibootusb program. Also note that the pen drive needs to be in fat32 format for proper booting. if in other formats, for eg. ntfs, you can use the GParted program that is in this dvd, to reformat it to fat32 ( will cleanup all data ). Watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjQRkISnHQ4 before format. See Wiki
An EFI boot manager utility
rEFInd is a fork of the rEFIt boot manager. Like rEFIt, rEFInd can auto-detect your installed EFI boot loaders and it presents a pretty GUI menu of boot options. rEFInd goes beyond rEFIt in that rEFInd better handles systems with many boot loaders, gives better control over the boot loader search process, and provides the ability for users to define their own boot loader entries.

Install OS X Leopard on some unsupported Macs.
LeopardAssist assists in the process of install OS X Leopard on machines that did not meet the minimum system requirement of an 867MHz or faster processor. It achieves this by temporarily writing a script into the NVRAM of your G4-based Mac. Executed at startup, this script will temporarily force the system to report that a faster processor is installed, allowing the Leopard installer to successfully complete its minimum system requirements check. This allows Leopard to be installed from unmodified installation media or another bootable device. LeopardAssist handles the interaction with Open Firmware, specifying the target processor speed, the number of physical processors in the system, the desired boot device and any additional startup flags to simplify the installation and configuration process.
Applications for daily use. Like browsers, text editors, and others. This is also a place to find great tools.
A shellscript with a collection of functions for managing Mac OS X machines.
onmac (aka winxponmac aka XOM) is a tool that allows you to boot windows xp on an intel mac. Similar to Apple's boot camp. This software is open source and will allow users to boot windows XP after the boot camp beta expires.
iBoot (the Interactive BOOTmenu system) is a set of applications that creates, configures, and manages a startup/boot menu that can boot Mac OS, Linux, and BSD Unix systems for PPC Macs.
A triple boot solution for intel based macs.
Startup Helper will help you start up the programs you use every day.
Startup Helper lets users choose which programs are launched when the OS boots up. It also allows for waiting periods between launching programs, to prevent programs slowing each other down. During this startup process, the user can control the waiting period through the Startup Helper GUI, pausing the program, skipping a single program, or foregoing the waiting period and launching the next program immediately. This project is made in Java, so it should be multiplatform. However, I've only been able to test it on a Windows XP machine, so please let me know if there are oddities, bugs and/or malfunctions on other platforms.
motd is an init script that dynamically collects system information at boot time and formats it properly into /etc/motd for display at login.
daemonic provides server packages with an abstract, system-independent interface to system startup scripts and inetd.
netbootd adds network boot (PXE and BSDP) support to networks with an existing DHCP service that can not be reconfigured with the appropriate DHCP options.
moerAskip enables the user to save, edit and switch network profiles. These profiles will include ip address, dns, printer, samba, webserver, desktop apps etc. settings. As of version 0.3 moerAskip will run on all platforms.
