I'd like to nominate the open-source self hosting distribution, arkOS ( arkOS takes Linux and puts a visual environment to it (accessible through the browser) that makes it very easy for users to host their own websites, emails, chat accounts, and much more. You can add new services just like you install an application from the app store on your phone, and they can be managed automatically by the device. This has super-important implications for privacy because it empowers non-technical users to decentralize their communications. The main developer Jacob Cook is working really hard on new versions this year which will bundle in some cool new features, and at this point they are relying on donations to keep adding new ones and to keep improving the platform's security.
