JNode is a Java New Operating system Design Effort. JNode is a simple to use and install Java operating system for personal use on modern devices. Any java application runs on it, fast and safe. See our homepage for additional information.
UEFI GTP fdisk is a disk partitionning tool running under UEFI/BIOS
UEFI GPT fdisk is a port to UEFI of the famous GPT fdisk partitioning tool, see http://sourceforge.net/projects/gptfdisk/ . Now since this program runs directly under UEFI shell you don't need to *boot* the system to convert/edit partition tables.
amforth is an extendible interpreter on microcontrollers
amforth is an extendable command interpreter running on AVR ATmega and TI MSP430 microcontrollers. Turnkey actions for fully autonomous operations are possible as well. The command language is close to the Forth 2012 standard.
Nucleus is an Operating system Kernel that is totally different from Linux and Windows. It is easy to understand and implement. It will have native support, small architecture and full VGA support (no text mode).
C-BIOS is an open source BIOS for MSX computers. C-BIOS can be shipped with MSX emulators so they are usable out-of-the-box. This project aims to improve C-BIOS by fixing incompatibilities with the MSX BIOS and the development of a Disk ROM.
Real-time, modular, microkernel-based operating system under development for i386. The first goal is to support 32-bit DOS protected mode applications made with DJGPP as well as native applications.
COBE is a operating system, wich is right in developing. Stay tuned.
TomOS is a simple 16 bit operating system for x86. It is based on MikeOS version 2.0.0. It is entirely written in the assembly language. TomOS is an educational project.
With this project I intend to write a really, really simple OS, just for fun and learning. I think I will never have a really usable version, as I said, that's no my objective.
A multi-tasking, multi-threaded micro-kernel operating system for the x86 platform.
Minirighi is a multi-threading open-source operating system written for didactic purpose. It has been written from scratch and it is compatible with POSIX.
Prex is a portable real-time operating system for embedded systems. The small, reliable and low power kernel is written in C language based on micro kernel design. File system, UNIX process and networking features are provided by user mode tasks.
The Trion Object Oriented Operating system is an OS that is designed to meet the needs for the 21st century, with a kernel written in C++ and modelled in UML, and lots of features. The project is run by a team of OSDev.org community members.
An open source operating system for x86.
Clicker is a project for a Multitasking Open-source operating system written from scratch. based on a modular micro kernel. We want to explore new way of designing and using OSes :) [newz: PCI, NE2K and VBE]
The OpenSSI project is a comprehensive clustering solution offering a full, highly available SSI environment for Linux. Goals for OpenSSI Clusters include availability, scalability and manageability, built from standard servers.
colorForth is, in Chuck Moore's own words: "A dialect of Forth that uses color to replace punctuation. Includes its own operating system. Produces extremely compact programs. Instant compile from pre-parsed source."
FreeOS/1 is a Free, Open Source, FreeDOS based Free and Open Source Alternative OS, with open source Microsoft Windows compatibility using HXDOSExtender KernelEx,and ReactOS source code. FreeOS/1 will include new technologies and will be easy to use
Philips PRM 8060 and PRM 8070 firmware to transmit on ham radio frequencies
ELKS is a subset of the Linux kernel that runs on IBM compatible PCs from 8086 up. It is intended to get use out of obsolete old hardware, for use in embedded systems, and as an educational tool. ELKS has been moved to Github to protest SourceForge's installer adware hijacking. This does not directly affect ELKS, but it does affect many major open source projects such as Gimp and FileZilla by attempting to trick the user into installing adware in order to download these programs. I refuse to leave ELKS here with such policies in effect. If you have questions about this, please email email@example.com.
Custom firmware and IDE for the VEX Cortex Microcontroller
This project has been moved to http://pros.cs.purdue.edu/ PROS is a lightweight and fast alternative operating system for the VEX Cortex Microcontroller. It features multitasking, low-level control, and Wiring compatible functions to harness the full power of the Cortex. With a real-time kernel based on FreeRTOS and a development environment built on Eclipse CDT, PROS uses proven software to increase the reliability and usability of the VEX development system across all three major computing platforms. PROS is currently under active development to make it usable for VEX high school and middle school teams. PROS is intended for advanced VEX users seeking to move beyond competing environments. Eclipse and FreeRTOS have their own licensing agreements. Please see http://www.eclipse.org/legal/epl-v10.html and http://www.freertos.org/a00114.html for details.
