Genode OS Gets An Ambitious 2012 Roadmap

Filed under
OS

Genode OS, one of the interesting non-Linux-based operating systems that is built on a unique framework architecture and is striving to make a general purpose OS, has shared a new project road-map.

The main point from Genode's new project road-map is, "we dedicate the year 2012 to the transition of the framework from a toolkit for building special-purpose operating systems to a fully functional general-purpose OS. The ambitioned goal of the Genode developers is to switch to Genode as everyday OS environment for carrying out productive work. In addition to bringing forward Genode as general purpose OS, we plan to use it to serve the genode.org web site." This is rather ambitious but will be interesting to see if they can pull it off.

Their goal for February with the Genode 12.02 release is PDF viewing support, offline Unix tools, abd file and directoy-service interfaces.

The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
