OSNews, Generic OSes The Genode OS framework, the reference implementation of the Genode operating system architecture, has seen its first release. "Genode is a novel operating-system architecture that enables dynamic workload while retaining security and robustness. The fundamental difference of Genode compared to other OS architectures is its strict organizational structure, which allows the execution of sensitive applications with a trusted computing base of a few thousand lines of code beside high-complexity workload. With its organizational approach, the architecture facilitates a clean separation of policies and mechanisms, and enables the definition and application of system policies in a natural and distributed fashion." The Genode OS Framework runs on Linux via libSDL, or on real hardware on top of the L4/Fiasco microkernel.

Hi all in this thread I would ike to ask some questions

1. Is it a ukernel OS?
2. Is it posix compliant?
3. Are the drivers user space processes? (I do not care that much on performance)
4. Does it have some linux or bsd compatibility layer?
5. Is it supposed to be like Hurd do they share common code?

That is *twice* now that I've seen the title and read "Google OS Framework 8.08 Released".

Anyone else?
