Raspberry Digital Signage
Raspberry Digital Signage displays web pages (network-fetched or SD-card-hosted) in a restricted full-screen view. Designed as a cheap and extremely powerful web-based digital signage solution with the Raspberry Pi microcomputer.
Raspberry Slideshow is focused on quick-to-set-up image and video slideshows for the Raspberry Pi. It plays all media contained in a USB key, fetched from a network share, from a Web/FTP server, from a folder of your Dropbox account and loaded via scp as well. Designed for media slideshow digital signage.
Raspberry Slideshow is in enlisted in the directory of Distrowatch.

RASPBIAN LITE ALTERNATIVE
Lampone Pi is a live Debian GNU/Linux Buster arm64 operating system for the Raspberry Pi microcomputer boards; it’s the only live operating system for the Pi which can do kernel update. Although it is not affiliated or derived from Raspbian, it’s the homologous of Raspbian Lite (they both derive from Debian), but differently it’s a 64bit live OS.
Why this project? If the image below looks familiar to you, you already have the answer : )
So, technically it’s a Debian derivative with a unique partitioning scheme crafted for maximizing the strength against filesystem corruption: the ISO9660 system partition is read-only by design at filesystem-level. The data persistence partition contains only the delta: system updates and your data lay there. The data partition mounted on top of a read-only system partition makes the resulting operating system resistant to filesystem-corruption. Moreover, you can do complete system backups by just tar-ring only the files contained within that partition.
Lampone Pi is a fully functioning operating system, but as of now it’s not fully tuned for the Pi (drivers, GPU acceleration, …): maintainers are needed.
Raspberry Digital Signage and Raspberry Slideshow are still based on Raspberry Pi OS (formerly Raspbian).
