The Redox operating system
By Thom Holwerda on 2016-03-19 13:57:42

Redox is a general purpose operating system and surrounding ecosystem written in pure Rust. Our aim is to provide a fully functioning Linux replacement, without the bad parts.

We have modest compatibility with Linux syscalls, allowing Redox to run many Linux programs without virtualization.

We take inspiration from Plan9, Minix, and BSD. We are trying to generalize various concepts from other systems, to get one unified design. We will speak about this some more in the Design chapter.

Redox runs on real hardware today.
