OSNews, Generic OSes It really is the week of back-to-core news for OSNews, as we've had news on various smaller operating systems and new projects. Forget Windows 7 and Snow Leopard; in the end this is what we're all here for. Anyway, B Labs has recently announced that version 0.1 of their Codezero microkernel has been released.

Indeed. Great to see more kernels.

I could have been personally interested, but even without the copyright share agreement, GPL3 is a complete show-stopper, and even more so in the embedded sphere.

Pretty much my thinking, too. Especially since there are other L4 variants you can use that are BSD-licensed.

The bigger story here is the number of L4 projects going on.

I still would be somewhat more interested in an L4/NetBSD port. Linux/glibc are just amazingly bloated these days.

or a finalized hurd on viegoos on L4 (Codezero?). Then we could port Apple's IOKit or QNX drivers.

Care to explain why?

Actually I would rather leave this as my personal opinion to which I am hopefully entitled to.

But there is a voice of my employer in there too: we (employees) do not touch (distribute) GPLv3 code no matter what and try to avoid GPLv2 at all costs, regardless of me and my personal opinions.
