Real-time frameworks/RTOS based on active objects & state machines
Real-time frameworks/RTOS for building responsive and modular real-time embedded software as systems of active objects (concurrent state machines). The QP family consists of QP/C, QP/C++, and QP-nano frameworks, which are all strictly quality controlled, superbly documented, and commercially licensable. The behavior of active objects (a.k.a. actors) is specified in QP by means of hierarchical state machines (UML statecharts). The frameworks support manual coding of UML state machines in C or C++ as well as automatic code generation by means of the free QM modeling tool. All QP frameworks can run on bare-metal MCUs, completely replacing a traditional RTOS. Ports and ready-to-use examples are provided for major embedded CPUs, such as ARM Cortex-M, ARM7/9, MSP430, as well as Arduino and mbed. QP/C and QP/C++ can also work with a traditional RTOS/OS, such as ThreadX, FreeRTOS, embOS, and uC/OS-II as well as Linux (POSIX), Windows.

Tool kit for building highly secure special-purpose operating systems
The Genode OS Framework is a tool kit for building highly secure special-purpose operating systems. It scales from embedded systems with as little as 4 MB of memory to highly dynamic general-purpose workloads. Genode is based on a recursive system structure. Each program runs in a dedicated sandbox and gets granted only those access rights and resources that are needed for its specific purpose. Programs can create and manage sub-sandboxes out of their own resources, thereby forming hierarchies where policies can be applied at each level. The framework provides mechanisms to let programs communicate with each other and trade their resources, but only in strictly-defined manners. Thanks to this rigid regime, the attack surface of security-critical functions can be reduced by orders of magnitude compared to contemporary operating systems.
FlashForth is a standalone Forth system for the Microchip PIC 18, 24, 30, 33 and the Atmel Atmega series of microcontrollers. A Forth system with interpreter, compiler, assembler and multitasker is provided.

freeRTOS for Arduino Uno, Goldilocks 1284p & Mega 2560
AVR ATmega port of freeRTOS A port of freeRTOS which can be flexibly flexibly configured use almost any available Timer on AVR ATmega devices and will operate with almost any classic Arduino device from Arduino, SeeedStudio, Sparkfun, Freetronics or Pololu. Going forward this repository will be updated less often and only with major releases. Please check at Github for the latest commits. https://github.com/feilipu/avrfreertos The Goldilocks Analogue story is told here. http://feilipu.me/?s=Goldilocks+Analogue The Goldilocks 1284p story is here. http://feilipu.me/2013/03/08/goldilocks-1284p-arduino-uno-clone/ If this repository is too complicated to get started, a minimum AVR freeRTOS configured using the Watchdog Timer and Heap 3 is also also available. https://github.com/feilipu/miniAVRfreeRTOS For the Arduino platform there is a freeRTOS Library available in the Arduino IDE Library manager. https://github.com/feilipu/Arduino_FreeRTOS_Library
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
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."
Collection of all opensource software used on TomTom's GO devices
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]
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).
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.
uSmartx is a non-preemptive, multitasking, priority based kernel for use in embedded designs. Its major features are task and time control over system resources, inter task communication and simple memory management.
This project aims to develop a Lisp based operating system for general purpose computer architectures.
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.
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.
Venom Operating System. A protected mode kernel for i386+ PC's. Designed for games and multimedia.
XMK is a preemptive multitasking kernel for microcontrollers. Its goal is to provide a RTOS small enough (RAM+ROM) to run on 8bit microcontrollers. XMK provides additional/optional features when scaling up to 16bit and 32bit platforms.
