OSNews, Generic OSes With the ability to run the GNU tool chain including GCC, binutils, and GNU make, the Genode OS framework has taken another big step towards becoming a general-purpose OS. The just released version 12.05 introduces Genode's file-system infrastructure along with support for stacked file systems, extends the framework API with support for configuring system components on-thy-fly, and adds media replay capabilities.

The Genode project is really the most impressive general-purpose OS development out there. Congratulation to the team. I do hope it will stay under active development several more years, there will definitely be a use case for it sooner or later.

Being completely new to Genode OS I find the whole thing quite fascinating. They've actually managed to implement many of the things I've complained about for years and they've seemingly managed to do it all in functional way. "The principle of least possible privileges" is something that should have been implemented on mobile devices YEARS ago already, so I really hope Genode OS will gain some traction sooner or later in the mobile device industry.

I'll have to keep an eye on this thing.

Thanks for the encouraging words. Even though Genode does not yet qualify for being called a general-purpose OS, it is definitely the goal to get there in the not-too-distant future.
