uCLinux - Embedded Linux

  •        0

The original uClinux (you-see-linux) was a derivative of Linux 2.0 kernel intended for microcontrollers without Memory Management Units (MMUs). However, the Linux/Microcontroller Project has grown both in brand recognition and coverage of processor architectures. Today's uClinux as an operating system includes Linux kernel releases for 2.0 2.4 and 2.6 as well as a collection of user applications, libraries and tool chains. uClinux is mostly used in Embedded and Gaming device.

uClinux is ported to Cisco routers, Motorola, Intel and many other devices and microcontrollers. Sourceforge location: http://sourceforge.net/projects/uclinux/

Minix - Operating System by Andrew S. Tanenbaum

MINIX 3 is a free, open-source, operating system designed to be highly reliable, flexible, and secure. It is based on a tiny microkernel running in kernel mode with the rest of the operating system running as a collection of isolated, protected, processes in user mode.

Genode - Operating System Framework

The Genode operating-system framework provides a uniform API for applications on top of 8 existing microkernels/hypervisors: Linux, L4ka::Pistachio, L4/Fiasco, OKL4, NOVA, Fiasco.OC, Codezero, and a custom kernel for ARM SoCs. For developers, the framework provides an easy way to target multiple different kernels instead of tying the development to a particular kernel technology.

Unicorn - Rack HTTP server for fast clients and Unix

Unicorn is an HTTP server for Rack applications designed to only serve fast clients on low-latency, high-bandwidth connections and take advantage of features in Unix/Unix-like kernels. Load balancing is done entirely by the operating system kernel. Requests never pile up behind a busy worker process. Does not care if your application is thread-safe or not, workers all run within their own isolated address space and only serve one client at a time for maximum robustness.
