OSNews, Generic OSes The just released version 13.02 of the Genode OS Framework comes with major improvements of the underlying kernels. Using the NOVA kernel, the framework can be used to build custom operating systems for IOMMU-enabled machines while also leveraging hardware virtualization. Using Genode's custom kernel or the Fiasco.OC kernel, the new version targets ARM Cortex-A15-based systems such as the Exynos 5250 SoC.

djohnston,

"It's a given that OS in the domain name stands for operating system, not just open source. Thom and others before him have covered every operating system under the sun, including Microsoft's. MS can hardly be called open source."

Well yes I know that ;) but the articles covered here are a superset of operating systems just like they are a superset of open source. I don't find it obvious what the original intent was, but you are probably right.

"Alfman, what are you hinting at? 'Money for nothing and your chicks for free?'"

Alot of work goes into doing things like this, it certainly wouldn't be money for nothing. Maybe I could have done it for free before kids, but not now. Maybe someone is willing to volunteer as an unpaid intern, but the project would really call for engineers with more experience. Ultimately though if no one pays, then the in depth engineering articles that some of us would like to read are not likely to be written.

Kochise,

That's not really helpful, I was more interested in the historical intention for the domain name.

FYI I'm not the only one who recognizes that OS could stand for either:
