OSNews, Generic OSes It really is the week of back-to-core news for OSNews, as we've had news on various smaller operating systems and new projects. Forget Windows 7 and Snow Leopard; in the end this is what we're all here for. Anyway, B Labs has recently announced that version 0.1 of their Codezero microkernel has been released.

I agree with you. First of all we don't use anything ugly and old. I hate them.

For example we don't have Makefiles. We use SCons (new).

We don't have ugly shell scripts. We use Python.

We don't have ugly x86 assembly, although assembly is in itself hard to read, please take a look at Codezero vectors.S you will see how well documented it is.

Codezero *is* indeed, a candidate for you to design your own environment and OS. The L4 API gives you the least common denominator mechanism to build different systems on top. The POSIX services are just an example.
What's better, is each of them may co-exist and interact on the same system.

The Codezero project started with the very same limitations I see in the existing systems that you have mentioned.
