Inferno – an operating system designed for building distributed and networked systems on a wide variety of devices and platforms. Inferno was based on the experience gained with Plan 9 from Bell Labs, and currently being developed by Vita Nuova. Applications for this system are written in the Limbo language. The name of the system and some related programs (including Styx, Limbo) come from the Dante’s Divine Comedy.

Inferno can run as a user application on top of an existing operating system or as a stand alone operating system. Most of the popular operating systems and processor architectures are supported:
– Host Operating Systems
– Windows NT/2000/XP
– Irix
– Linux
– MacOS X
– FreeBSD
– Solaris
– Plan 9

Inferno applications are written in Limbo®, a modern, safe, modular, concurrent programming language with C-like syntax. It is more powerful than C but considerably easier to understand and debug than C++ or Java. It is easy to express the concurrency in the physical world directly in Limbo’s syntax. Any Inferno application will run identically on all Inferno platforms.

High level security is an important part of the Inferno system. By using one standard protocol for all network communication, security can be focused on one point and provided at a system level. Inferno offers full support for authenticated, encrypted connections using a certificate based user identification scheme and variety of algorithms.

Inferno 4 was released in 2005 as free software.

Founded in March 2000, Vita Nuova Holdings Ltd is an operating systems and application development company specializing in technologies for distributed applications on network devices and embedded systems.
