Hi Chris,

Sandia has a couple of projects that might interest you, but I don't know how actively they are being maintained and developed:

Kitten https://software.sandia.gov/trac/kitten

There's also an OSS derivative of the Catamount uOS used on the Red Storm and Cray XT-series that preceded CNL. They continued to develop it for some time for the Red Storm system even after the switch to CNL, however: http://www.cs.sandia.gov/~rbbrigh/OpenCatamount/

Coming from the non-HPC world, CoreOS could to have a lot of potential as well and is constantly developing: https://coreos.com/
