Syllable, AtheOS AtheOS is a modern, free (GPLed) Operating System written from scratch in C++. A big chunk of the OS is POSIX compliant, supports multiprocessing and it is GUI-oriented (fully OOP). Today we are hosting an interesting interview with the AtheOS creator, Kurt Skauen. Kurt is talking about his views on binary compatibility in future versions, multithreading and the future of his OS in general.

multithreading

Since this discussion started out as an interview with Kurt about AtheOS, I hope that the conclusion is "make asynchronous messaging in AtheOS as fail-safe as possible". Maybe extensive use of threads isn't quite all that Be and BeOS made it out to be, but it would be nice if at least one OS keeps carrying the pervasive/perverse multithreading model forward to see where it leads.
