- OS: Project is an Operating System Kernel ×
IFEM (Industrial, Fault tolerant, EMbedded) is a modern OS with a hybrid kernel design benefitting from ideas such as Pure Microkernel and Exokernel, aiming industrial application, fault-tolerance, embedded applications and perfect modularity.1 weekly downloads
The Harmony project has two fundamental guidelines: Make it easy and make it flexible. It is an entirely new operating system that focuses on giving the user a totally customizable experience.
FOS - open source 32-bit microkernel operating system.
OSNOS (Open Source Network Operating System) is an operating system desigend to meet the needs of small to medium networks. It will support server based applications, and will handle routing of packets through the network, and support multi-user logins.1 weekly downloads
Dynics is an operating system for the 64-bit IBM-compatible PC, focussing on services for dedicated audio and MIDI processing. Dynics turns the PC into a powerfull and stable studio component. This is one step towards the DSC: Dynics Studio Computer.
This project aims to develop the next generation operating system. It is still in late planning/early development stage.
crowOS aims not to be a big, wide-spread OS, but only a sort of hobbie-OS of mine, mainly for fun and to learn more about what is going on "under the hood". For now, it will be based on the x86-architecture, written mainly in C but also some Assembly.
Crocos is a small opensource UNIX-like kernel, designed with simplicity in mind, for educational purposes. It is developed in several steps to allow people to understand how a tiny operating system can be built from scratch.2 weekly downloads
CleanOS is an operating system developed for educational purposes, initially to be an userspace GNU/Linux application running its executables and simulating the operating system task scheduler and IPC mechanisms. Now it supports a true i386 kernel.
Caracal Boot Loader (cboot) is a second stage boot loader which takes over from GRUB (or other multiboot compatible loader) and prepares the system for your higher-half kernel. It now also includes VESA mode setting support.1 weekly downloads
An open hardware and software platform, Octobits attempts to recreate the aesthetics of the early eight-bit computer age using cheap, powerful, and readily available modern components.
AWOS: The Universal Operating System.4 weekly downloads
Nx is a simple (yet only x86) multiprocess operating system kernel written in C (and some parts in assembly) from scratch. Our goal is to achieve high performance, speed, flexibility and security by using the simpliest possible design.
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.
A little operating system created in order to discover the basis of the modern operating system in practice.
ArchOpen is a project aimed at providing a fast, light and free operating system and applications for portable multimedia devices based on TI DM&DSC chips. It currently supports a lot of Archos multimedia devices (Gmini402,AV400,...).
Arm mini real-time OS, cooperative kernel for LPC 2106, Arm TDMI-s cores.1 weekly downloads
Operating system for Atmel AT91SAM7 microcontrollers
Admiral aims to be an OS written in Ada, making available to the user all the advantages of a well-designed & stable system.1 weekly downloads
A small multitasking OS to run on 65C816 based systems. Features to include a GUI support for as much HW for the supported systems as possible and a system of system extensions for easy expandability of the OS. The initial Development is being done on the Apple IIgs, with plans to port to the Commodore 64 with a SuperCPU. Eventually there will be ports to other 8 and 16-bit CPUs beginning with the 6502, followed by the z80, 6800, 6809, 8086, PDP-11, and then the TMS9900. Once these are complete there will be 32-bit ports to the 680x0, ARM, MIPS, etc.
Your Ass Os is an Operation system kernel. Whole written in C and assembly, need supporters.1 weekly downloads
StrikeRange is an Appliance OS designed exclusively for 64-bit multi-core processor architectures. It is derived from BSD kernel and OpenSource software libraries.
A general purpose hobby Kernel/OS intended for the x86 architecture. Targeting environments with limited resources and restrictive displays; featuring console-based video, multi-tasking and a certain emphasis on modularity without sacrificing efficiency.
Aicix is hobby Operating System (OS) of me. It won't be as big as Linux distributions are.
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.37 weekly downloads
