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.

"However, I am convinced that one thread per window is overkill, especially when messages can't be guaranteed to go through." So what is your real opinion about "one-thread-per-window" if messages ARE guaranteed to go through? What would be the big problem in this case? I guess most of us are very interesting in hearing why forcing multithreading could be bad in general (although you'll never know the definete answer like the microkernel vs. monolithic kernel discussion)), instead of why it is bad in BeOS. ;) Especially, cause this is the AtheOS thread. ;) However, thanks for the informations (same to Kurt)!
