Features (and the main Goals)

  • True microkernel design. Only small peice of code works on highest priviledge level, that makes the system more reliable.
  • Portability. Written in C language with small amount of hardware-specific code, so it can be easily ported to other hardware platforms.
  • Scalability. By varying set of system services it can be adapted to work on cellular phone, desktop PC or used as embedded operating system.

  • How to build

    Extract snapshot tarball (if you have downloaded repository snapshot) and go to "phlox" directory. Type "make" to build bootable image or type "make bochs" to start Bochs emulation. For more information type "make help".
