OSNews, Generic OSes Discerning techies probably know of the the programming language occam, designed for the Inmos Transputer highly parallel processor from the 1980s. It's not so widely-known that occam is still around and available for the x86 in the form of the Kent Retargetable occam Compiler, KRoC - nor that there's an entire PC OS, complete with GUI, written in occam-pi: RMoX.

The design is very similar to the Singularity project at Microsoft Reseach. Basically, a micro kernel with languages based protection.
