An operating system based on the best Windows NT design principles
ReactOS is an open source effort to develop a quality operating system that is compatible with applications and drivers written for the Microsoft Windows NT family of operating systems (NT4, 2000, XP, 2003).
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.
Haiku is an open-source operating system currently in development designed from the ground up for desktop computing.
Embedded Operating System
EXIRION/OS is an operating system for embedded computer systems. These operating systems are designed to be compact, efficient at resource usage, and reliable, forsaking many functions that non-embedded computer operating systems provide, and which may not be used by the specialized applications they run. They are frequently also referred to as real-time operating systems, and the term RTOS is often used as a synonym for embedded operating system. EXIRION/OS project, a Open operating system for computers that can be used in specific operations that require execute a task at a time, EXIRION/OS operating system is a monolithic and mono layered task, which can be used to control complex electronic equipment without the use of instruments PLC, offering a wide range of electronic and industrial applications, EXIRION/OS is also an educational tool, it is an open source operating system to use it as an example of building operating systems in universities and technical colleges.
FreeMiNT is a free alternative OS kernel for Atari systems & clones
FreeMiNT provides the basis of a free TOS compatible replacement OS that can multitask. Used together with the free system components fVDI (device drivers), XaAES (graphical user interface widgets), and TeraDesk (desktop manager), it provides a modern user interface.
An open source operating system for x86.
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
A fork of ReactOS which aims to be compatible to the NT architecture (but not a clone) meeting WINE's standards every time a part of NT interface is implemented. The fork was done at revision 9494 before ReactOS changed slowly into Tinykrnl.
A rethinking of the Operating System Ecosystem.
This is the fifth or sixth generation of this idea, the big difference being that we have written some bootloader code and have started mapping out the kernel layout and structure. We have decided upon a core programming language for the kernel, and the core language for almost everything else. With a focus on isolating the MAJOR kernel features from the system itself, in what until now has remained research only instances, we hope to create a fully functioning exokerne. All code at this time will be available only via a git repository.
self-sustaining consult and counsel agency/agent server/client. Root alias is the OS, which runs on Windows/Linux/Talon operates on or independently of all OS through intuitive protocol based parallel wiring diagramming It's really an exciting build. M
Aicix is hobby Operating System (OS) of me. It won't be as big as Linux distributions are.
Aurora OS is an operating system designed in a microkernel format for all users. The object is to develop a modular, mulitplatform, multitasking Operating System that is simple, effective, and powerful.
AxionOS is (to be) a operating system for the Axion Prototype Computer (APC) which is basically a notebook. Currently the project is in its childhood, but the idea is simple - To create an intuitive, user-friendly operating system for the APC.
BOS – B.lu operating System, is an operating system dedicated to small microcontrollers and CPUs without MMU. Actually is dedicated to Texas Instruments MSP430 microcontrollers (it can be ported to other CPUs without great changes)
BNL OS is a free, modern operating system based on the design of Windows XP/2003.This is not a Linux based system, and shares none of the unix architecture. Please remember, this is in the development stage, and is not reccommended for everyday use.
Blueport is an italian Open Source 32-bit operating system ... This project has temporarly moved to Gna.org: <a href="http://gna.org/projects/blueport">Blueport project</a>
CJet eXTreme OS is a new project to develop a cross platform operating system with a native application interface designed to make it easy to develop for several architectures at once.
Cerberus is an attempt at creating flexible and extremely customizable Operating System that can be used on many types of computer systems including desktops, servers, and embedded solutions.
New Linux Based OS primarily for smart devices and PDA's, laptops, and eventually desktops. It offers an alternative to the "embedded" approach. All OS versions and applications will be hosted and then made available to the subscribers of cloud svs
The future of information technology will be based on controlling the flow of natural light. This project is an attempt to establish the code (or software) that will enable this to happen. It involves rewriting an OS from the ground up.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
FOS - open source 32-bit microkernel operating system.
A collection of dozens of entertaining educational programs. Optionally bootable from Floppy, CD, or USB. Only the open source portions of FUZOMA are hosted on Sourceforge. Visit the Project Homepage for the full version of FUZOMA.
An operating system written in C & assembly.
