Its name is an acronym for Dresden Real-Time Operating System, which reveals its strongest feature, it is real-time capable and it is designed with security in mind. Its homepage can be found here.

This is a very well written article: It describes the functionality of DROPS, gives a short but clear idea of the microkernels and L4, shows the integration to Linux and mentions the problems that they are still having.

I like a lot the L4 family (Fiasco, Pistachio, etc.) and I think it will be very important in the next years when the monolithic kernels will become harder and harder to maintain.

Excellent article, congratulations Steffen.
