OSNews, Generic OSes The OS Group of Technische Universitaet Dresden (TUD:OS) has released a live demo CD of their custom operating system project. TUD:OS is a microkernel-based operating system targeted at secure and real-time systems. Some highlights of the demo CD include a new approach for securing graphical user interfaces called Nitpicker, multiple L4Linux kernels running at the same time on top of a custom L4 microkernel, a survey on the reuse of device drivers on the TUD:OS platform, native Qt-applications, the DOpE windowing system, games, and much more. More information is available at the demo CD website. And yes, boys and girls, there are screenshots, too.

Really? Because if Andrew Tanenbaum was some polite old professor happy to see a youngster like Linus Torvalds accomplish something great, that'd be nice. But he's not. He's a loud-mouthed, opinonated ass. You have to give respect to get it back. That's how it works. He doesn't seem to understand that.
