with each new release I show a little more interest in this OS. Most of these hobby OS's have some feature or another that makes them stand out to me and I'll test them or give them a try. I haven't found this one's special trait yet though. Anyone know what makes it 'special' ?

As one of the developers, I think it's the portability. The other comparable multiserver systems are not portable.
