OSNews, Generic OSes This paper describes the design of the kaneton microkernel. This system was designed to be ported on many architectures without being intrusive. Moreover, the main goal of this system was to be understandable by everyone interested in operating systems internals. To do so, the kaneton design and implementation are very elegant and easy to understand. Finally, the kaneton microkernel includes modern distributed concepts leading to a powerful, secure, flexible and reliable microkernel based OS. Note: This is the first entry to our Alternative OS Contest which runs through 14th July!

Linux! and many others...

No student wants to look at the Linux kernel source because too messy.

Moreover,there are different levels of clarity: the kaneton source code really looks like pseudo code while written in C.

Engineering is about real systems.

kaneton is not only intended to engineer students but students in general including for example high school students interested in operating systems.

When the microkernel development will be finished, the kaneton project will be available on the website with papers, documentation and assignments so every person intersted will be able to build its own microkernel based on the kaneton microkernel design.

The kaneton stuff will be available on the website at the end of the year. The developers first need to finish the microkernel implementation, to write tests and documentation etc..
