Austrumi ("east", Austrum Latvijas Linukss) is a bootable live CD Linux distribution. It is based on Slackware. It was created and is currently being maintained by a group of programmers from the Latgale region of Latvia. It requires limited system resources and can run on any Intel-compatible system with a CD-ROM installed or from a flash drive. The entire operating system and all the applications run from RAM, making Austrumi faster than larger distributions that must read from a disk, and allowing the boot medium to be removed after the operating system starts.

Autopoweroff is a script that shuts down a computer at a specific time, but only if some conditions are met. It works well on home routers/firewalls where the machine can be switched off every night and powered back up in the morning. It can be configured to only shut down the server after any computers which depend on the server for Internet access have been shut down.
