OSNews, Generic OSes The OS Group of Technische Universitaet Dresden (TUD:OS) has released a live demo CD of their custom operating system project. TUD:OS is a microkernel-based operating system targeted at secure and real-time systems. Some highlights of the demo CD include a new approach for securing graphical user interfaces called Nitpicker, multiple L4Linux kernels running at the same time on top of a custom L4 microkernel, a survey on the reuse of device drivers on the TUD:OS platform, native Qt-applications, the DOpE windowing system, games, and much more. More information is available at the demo CD website. And yes, boys and girls, there are screenshots, too.

to my knowledge but the L4 microkernel has been around for a while nobody has bothered so far to make a live distro, a recent linux distro based on L4 with a good installer would rock, imaging running Linux and BSD side by side under one Microkernel.
