OSNews, Generic OSes Genode is a new OS architecture that is able to align high security, robustness, and deterministic system behaviour with dynamic application workload. The project has now released its first ready-to-boot Live CD that demonstrates the key ideas of the architecture in an interactive fashion using a custom GUI and a number of example applications. It runs on Qemu, VirtualBox, and a range of native PC hardware.

Hi, it would be nice to know, why it cannot set the VESA mode. Don't Vmware and VirtualPC support 16 bit graphics modes (at all/in your setup)? Unfortunately, we do not have access to these products.

Virtual PC does support 16bit modes, but it isn't as reliable as 32bit. I often have problems with 16bit modes in Linux under Virtual PC, which are fixed in 32bit modes. However other OSs eg Syllable [www.syllable.org] work fine in 16bit modes.
Furthermore, the TU Dresden OS live cd [http://demo.tudos.org/] (also based on L4) works fine in Virtual PC for me!
