QuoteThe HelenOS project is an effort to develop a complete and usable modern operating system, yet offering room for experimenting and research. HelenOS uses its own microkernel written from scratch and supports SMP, multitasking and multithreading on both 32-bit and 64-bit, little-endian and big-endian processor architectures, among wich are AMD64/EM64T (x86-64), ARM, IA-32, IA-64 (Itanium), 32-bit MIPS, 32-bit PowerPC, SPARC V9 and Xen 3.0. Thanks to the relatively high number of supported architectures and suitable design, HelenOS is extremely-well portable.As of now, HelenOS is being developed mostly by faculty and students of Faculty of Mathematics and Physics at Charles University in Prague, but the project is open for everyone. The source code is open and available under the BSD license. Some third party components, and components based on GPL software, are licensed under GPL. There is also a minority of public domain code.
