mattOS – a simple x86 assembly operating system based on MikeOS. It’s goal is to have lots of features.

The system is loaded from the floppy/CD, by BOOTLOAD.BIN, as KERNEL.BIN. First we have the system call vectors, which start at a static point for programs to jump to. Following that is the main kernel code and then additional system call code is included.

The system bootloader is based on a free boot loader by E Dehling. It scans the FAT12 floppy for KERNEL.BIN (the MikeOS kernel), loads it and executes it. This must grow no larger than 512 bytes (one sector), with the final two bytes being the boot signature (AA55h). Note that in FAT12, a cluster is the same as a sector: 512 bytes.

TempleOS (formerly: J Operating System, SparrowOS and LoseThos) – a lightweight operating system designed to be a Temple to Jesus Christ, developed by Terry A. Davis. Terry A. Davis has spent 12 years attempting to create the operating from scratch. Terry explains that God has instructed him to construct a temple.

TempleOS is an x86_64, multi-tasking, multi-cored, public domain, open source, ring-0-only, single-address-map (identity-mapped), non-networked, PC operating system for recreational programming.

The TempleOS is written in HolyC (a variation of C) and uses an interface similar to a mixture of DOS and Turbo C.

It has keyboard and mouse support, and ISO 9660, FAT32 and RedSea file systems (created by Davis) with support for file compression. It runs 8-bit ASCII with graphics in source code and has a 2D and 3D graphics library, which run at 640×480 VGA with 16 colors. The operating system includes an original flight simulator, compiler, and kernel.

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.

SkyOS (Sky Operating System) – a proprietary, graphical desktop operating system created by Robert Szeleney in 1996 as a small bootloader. It is independent developed, written from scratch, POSIX compatible operating system for x86-like computers.

SkyOS has evolved into a full-featured, modern operating system, with a goal to be the easiest to use desktop operating system available for the average computer user. The development staff has also increased to include business, software, and graphics developers.

SkyOS uses its own GUI system called “SkyGI”, which features a complete C++ API. This system has nothing to do with X or XFree86, and is not based on either of these systems or their forks.

SkyOS uses no GPL’d code in the kernel/system. SkyOS does include some applications (such as Firefox) that are covered by the GPL.

SkyOS uses the SkyFS file system which is based on OpenBFS, but can also read FAT16 / FAT32, BeFS, ext2 / ext3.

The public beta of the SkyOS iso is available for users for testing the SkyOS.

ProteanOS – an operating system for embedded devices. Its innovative design enables it to offer a competitive solution in a wide variety of hardware and software environments and embedded applications.

ProteanOS is built on industry-standard and enterprise-quality technology and aims to provide a competitive solution in a wide variety of applications – from personal electronics and automotive systems to robotics and digital signage.

ProteanOS seeks to combine the ease of setup found in most desktop and enterprise operating systems with the flexibility and configurability found in many other embedded operating systems.

All of the software in ProteanOS is free/libre and open source – it can be used, modified, and distributed without restriction.

ProteanOS can be made to run on just about any hardware that can support an operating system and made to work with a variety of UNIX®-like kernels (currently supported is Linux®) and system libraries.

ProteanOS is designed to be as small as possible. Only essential programs and libraries are installed by default. And each software package is stripped down as much as possible.

To install ProteanOS, you need to download a script to build a system called ‘Prokit’ that will allow you to built it.

The project founder is Patrick McDermott.

Coyotos – a secure, microkernel-based operating system that builds on the ideas and experiences of the EROS project, that itself is the successor of KeyKOS, itself coming from GNOSIS (Great New Operating System In the Sky). Much of the code developed for EROS will migrate directly to Coyotos. The EROS system that was created at the University of Pennsylvania and Johns Hopkins University.

Coyotos will be written in BitCee. BitC is a SystemProgramming language that combines the “low-level” nature of C with the semantic rigor of Scheme or ML. BitC was designed by careful selection and exclusion of language features in order to support proving properties (up to and including total correctness) of critical systems programs.

The Coyotos project has several objectives:
– Correct some of the shortcomings of the earlier EROS design.
– Demonstrate that an atomic kernel design scales up as well as down. We are planning to bring up versions of Coyotos on large-scale multiprocessors.
– Provide an efficient linux compatibility environment for use as a transitional runtime system, so that we can explore adapting applications to a more secure API foundation.
– (Eventually) Construct the kernel and key utilities in a new systems programming language (BitC) with a well-defined, mechanically-specified semantics. This will allow us to formally verify security and correctness properties of the system and its key utilities.
– Develop the proving technology necessary to do useful verification about a project of this sort.

The primary developer of EROS was Jonathan S. Shapiro, who is also a driving force behind Coyotos and the BitC programming language.
Since March 2010, the main development effort has been on the BitC language being designed for use in Coyotos: as of April 2016, the last change to Coyotos was in June 2010.
