Rescuezilla is an easy-to-use disk cloning and imaging application that's fully compatible with Clonezilla — the industry-standard trusted by tens of millions. Yes, Rescuezilla is the Clonezilla GUI (graphical user interface) that you might have been looking for. But Rescuezilla is more than a Clonezilla GUI! Disk imaging is the process of making a backup of your computer's hard drive which is managed as files stored on an external hard drive, and 'disk cloning' is the process of making a direct copy without needing a third drive for temporary storage. For many people, the alternative open-source tools such as Clonezilla are intimidating and difficult to use, so Rescuezilla provides an easy-to-use graphical environment like the leading commercial tools, Acronis True Image and Macrium Reflect.
Rescuezilla can be booted on any PC or Mac from a USB stick, and has been carefully developed to be fully interoperable with the Clonezilla. This means Rescuezilla can restore backups created by Clonezilla, and backups created by Rescuezilla can be restored using Clonezilla!

Lakka is a lightweight Linux distribution that transforms a small computer into a full blown retrogaming console. Built on top of the famous RetroArch emulator, Lakka is able to emulate a wide variety of systems and has some useful features such as automatic joypad recognition, rewinding, netplay, and shaders. Lakka is easy to setup and use. Once installed on your SD card or USB flash drive, you just have to copy your ROMs on the device, power up the rig and plug your joypad and enjoy your favorite games. We try our best to keep the hardware required to run Lakka as cheap as possible. The software is optimized to run fast even on low end computers, and we support a lot of USB joypads. Lakka is a community-driven project. Coders, designers and gamers, from all around the world, are working together to make it the Ultimate Emulation OS. Come and join us!

webOS is a web-centric and usability-focused software platform for smart devices, which has proven its performance and stability in over 70 million LG Smart TVs. Since its adaptation to display products, webOS has come a long way and evolved into a software platform applicable to a broader range of products.
The open source project of webOS, called webOS Open Source Edition (OSE), was announced in March 2018 under the philosophy of open platform, open partnership, and open connectivity. On top of the core architecture of webOS, webOS OSE offers additional features that allow extension to more diverse industry verticals.
Heimdall is a cross-platform open-source tool suite used to flash firmware (aka ROMs) onto Samsung mobile devices. Heimdall connects to a mobile device over USB and interact with software running on device known as Loke. Loke and Heimdall communicate via the custom Samsung-developed protocol sometimes referred to as the 'Odin protocol'. Low-level USB in Heimdall is handled by the popular open-source USB library, libusb.
Automatic CPU speed & power optimizer for Linux based on active monitoring of laptop's battery state, CPU usage, CPU temperature and system load. Ultimately allowing you to improve battery life without making any compromises.
One of the problems with Linux today on laptops is that CPU will run in unoptimized manner which will negatively reflect on battery life. For example, CPU will run using "performance" governor with turbo boost enabled regardless if it's plugged in to power or not.
Issue can be mitigated by using tools like indicator-cpufreq or cpufreq, but these still require manual action from your side which can be daunting and cumbersome.
Using tools like TLP can help in this situation with extending battery life but it also might come with its own set of problems, like losing turbo boost. With that said, I needed a simple tool which would automatically make "cpufreq" related changes, save battery like TLP, but let Linux kernel do most of the heavy lifting. That's how auto-cpufreq was born.
Please note: auto-cpufreq aims to replace TLP in terms of functionality and after you install auto-cpufreq it's recommended to remove TLP. If both are used for same functionality, i.e: to set CPU frequencies it'll lead to unwanted results like overheating. Hence, only use both tools in tandem if you know what you're doing.

A simple-to-use network-wide ad- and tracking blocking system. Set up something like a single-board computer (a spare RasPi or old laptop is fine), run the script, and it converts it into a DNS-level adblocking system. Then configure your local router to use it as its upstream DNS instead of your ISP. Has an easy to use and interpret dashboard. Also has a REST API but I haven't experimented with it yet.
The Ladybird Web Browser is a browser using the SerenityOS LibWeb engine with a Qt GUI. Qt6 development packages and a c++20-enabled compiler are required (gcc-11 or clang-13 at a minimum).
Not another Chromium reskin or Webkit wrapper. This is a from-scratch project.

Batocera.linux is an open-source and completely free retro-gaming distribution that can be copied to a USB stick or an SD card with the aim of turning any computer/nano computer into a gaming console during a game or permanently. Batocera.linux does not require any modification on your computer.
Weirdly cross-platform: x86_64, Mac, different handheld retrogaming consoles, the RasPi series, other SBCs, some hacked home devices...
Xenia, the fox girl mascot of Linux, was first designed in 1996 by Alan Mackey. She was meant to be an alternative to Tux, the official mascot. Something that would resurface in an article years later.
DrSchottky's fork of the Pwnagotchi firmware so that development can continue.
A port of the original iotop to C with additional features. Acts like top but for disk I/O. Good for keeping an eye on what's bogging your disk array down.
You can add a capability so that you don't need to be root to run it:
sudo setcap 'cap_net_admin+eip' /path/to/iotop
Here's my command line:
iotop -o -2 -6 -8
In the AUR as iotop-c.
Yes, there are people who still run DOS and use WordPerfect. Here's how.
Polybar aims to help users build beautiful and highly customizable status bars for their desktop environment, without the need of having a black belt in shell scripting. It has built-in functionality to display information about the most commonly used services. Has a large number of built-in widgets for many different facets of system status.

Budgie is a desktop environment that currently uses GNOME technologies such as GTK and is developed by contributors from numerous communities such as Solus, Arch Linux, Manjaro, openSUSE Tumbleweed and Ubuntu Budgie. Budgie's design emphasizes simplicity, minimalism, and elegance. The GTK library used for all releases up to Budgie 10 will be replaced with the Enlightenment Foundation Library (EFL) for the upcoming Budgie 11 release.

Mostly trustworthy paths to self hosted linux userspace.
This project contains tidy and well documented build scripts that make few assumptions about your host operating system.
A process and utilities for bootstrapping a Linux userspace from a minimal set of tools and build environment in such a way that it is more likely to detect a "trusting trust" code recognition and injection attack.
A "linux" written in python, for the Raspberry Pi Pico. Important note: Do not take this project seriously.
It runs on the rpi pico, circuitpython 7. You can optionally attach a SSD1306 display for output, a ds1302 RTC (make sure to set fixrtc to false from config.json) for persistent time or a w5500 networking breakout board for networking. For the missing hardware the functions will be automatically deactivated. (The hardware will also be deactivated in case of missing libraries.). It expects to find a /LjinuxRoot folder which uses as it's root. It can be on the built in fs, or an sd card, more details at Configuration.
