Contiki is an operating system for networked embedded systems such as radio-equipped networked sensors that have 8-bit CPUs with a few kilobytes of memory and a few milliwatts of power budget. Within these constraints, Contiki provides full IP networking, multi-hop radio routing, a web server, a telnet server, and a networked command-line shell. The 2.2.2 release contains uIPv6, the world’s smallest fully compliant IPv6 stack, SICSlowpan IPv6-over-802.15.4 header compression, and command line tools for HTTP interaction: wget and httpd.

one of the more impressive little OS’s out there right now. good stuff, gets a little better with every release. would like ot see this on x86 in the future as well though. as x86 makes its way into the embeded market more and more it would be nice ot have something as fast and small as Contiki.
