OSNews, Generic OSes "Newmium is currently developing iXRIOS, a high-speed, multi-processor, multi-operative, real-time operating system based on the workstation-server model. Users log on to a specific machine on which their operatives execute by default. They can request remote execution of their operatives via automatic and transparent load balancing of operatives and processors. Coupled with transparent load balancing, the iXRIOS system is loading only required services and drivers. iXRIOS is going to be restricted to commercial USA corporations. All government and non-profits are excluded from the program."

Kinda sounds like this "company" just re-badged Plan 9 to me.

From the front page of their site:

"Extensive R&D and synergistic relationships with designers, developers, vendors and industry leaders allows Newmium's products and services to unlock previously inaccessible price and performance potentials."

It seems that in addition to Display, Processor, and Storage server protocols, they've added MarketSpeak over 9P to Plan 9 as well. Nice to see they're contributing back. ;-)

Pity they didn't contribute some Marketspeak to Plan 9 back in the early 90's :-(

Could have been a player..
