OSNews, Generic OSes The Genode project has released a bootable live CD showcasing the capabilities of their OS-construction framework. It boots in less than 10 seconds (on VirtualBox) to a fully functional graphical user interface featuring a selection of five subsystems (screenshot). Each subsystem demonstrates different aspects of the framework. One of the highlights is a web browser that is executed natively on the microkernel and is able to run a sandboxed Linux kernel as browser plugin. Among the other demos are the famous Gears OpenGL demo showing Gallium3D in action, and a user-level Linux seamlessly integrated into the system.

I was playing with the Genode Live CD in Virtualbox and I couldn't connect to the Internet until I switched from a using a wireless connection to a wired one. At first I just thought it didn't work or that I had to change the NIC I using in Virtualbox but all I really need to do was plug it in.
