Genera – a proprietary, commercial operating system and integrated development environment for Lisp machines created in 1982 by Symbolics. It is a fork of an operating system created on the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) AI Lab’s Lisp machines which Symbolics had used in common with Lisp Machines, Inc. (LMI), and Texas Instruments (TI).

Symbolics is currently a privately held company which acquired the assets and intellectual property of the old public company called Symbolics, Inc. The old Symbolics was the premier producer of special-purpose computer systems for running and developing state-of-the-art object-oriented programs in Lisp. It designed and built workstations as well as writing a fully object-oriented operating system and development environment called “Genera” to run on those workstations. Symbolics also created a number of software tools to work with Genera. The new Symbolics continues to sell and maintain these products, along with Open Genera which runs on Alpha processor based workstations running Tru64 Unix.

Symbolics also distributes the Macsyma and PDEase software products for Windows PCs.

VINO – an extensible operating system. This means that application software, running with the privileges of an ordinary user, can provide extensions to operating system (specifically, operating system kernel) functionality. More importantly, this can be done both safely and reasonably securely, and also efficiently; efficiently enough to make it worthwhile.

VINO is also a Unix-like operating system. It includes an almost complete set of Unix user-mode tools and will compile and run much standard Unix software unmodified. It also offers some extended functionality beyond what is traditionally available under Unix.

VINO is largely derived from NetBSD. The core of the kernel and some of the highly kernel-dependent user tools are VINO code, written mostly from scratch. The “uninteresting” parts, from a researcher’s point of view, including most of the user-level tools and device drivers, were assimilated from NetBSD to avoid having to write them ourselves.

VINO does not support multiprocessor systems; however, for reasons connected to the extensibility research, it features a fully preemptible kernel with fine-grained locking. This requirement was the fundamental reason we wrote a whole operating system: at the time, none of the freely available operating systems offered fine-grained locking.

BitKey – Bitcoin Swiss Army Knife in a verifiably secure self-contained Live CD/USB. Supports air-gapped Bitcoin transactions. Makes offline cold storage (slightly more) practical. BitKey is a bootable system image based on Debian containing everything you need to perform highly secure air-gapped Bitcoin transactions. You don’t need to install it to a hard drive because it runs live from RAM.

The idea was to see if we could use the TurnKey GNU/Linux build system to create a self-contained read-only CD/USB stick with everything you need to perform Bitcoin transactions with as much security as you wanted – including highly secure air-gapped Bitcoin transactions.

JavaOS – a closed source, based on a Java virtual machine, and written in Java operating system developed by Sun Microsystems. JavaOS is a highly compact operating system designed to run Java applications directly on microprocessors in anything from net computers to pagers.

JavaOS brings the design advantages of the Java™ programming language to an operating system. As perhaps the smallest and fastest OS that runs Java, JavaOS enables Java on a broad range of devices. JavaOS will run equally well on a network computer, a PDA, a printer, a game machine, cellular telephone, or countless other devices that require a very compact OS and the ability to run Java.

In addition, JavaOS has been built to be fully ROMable for embedded applications, and can run with as little as 512K ROM and 256K RAM. For network computers, an entire system with JavaOS, the HotJava™ Browser and space for downloading Web content and applets requires only 3MB ROM and 4MB RAM. JavaOS can be this small because it is almost completely written in Java.

JavaSoft, headquartered in Cupertino, CA, is an operating company of Sun Microsystems Inc. The company’s mission is to develop, market and support the Java technology and products based on it. Java supports networked applications and enables developers to write applications once that will run on any machine. JavaSoft develops applications, tools and systems platforms to further enhance Java as the programming standard for complex networks such as the Internet and corporate intranets.

The first version of Trident was based on TrueOS, which in turn is based on FreeBSD for personal computer users. It uses the Lumina desktop as well as many self-developed system administration tools.

The installation image is provided with a graphical system installer.
Trident is only available for x86_64 machines.

Starting from version 20.02 Trident is based on the independent Void Linux distribution.

ChorusOS – a highly scalable and reliable embedded operating system that has established itself among top telecommunications suppliers. The ChorusOS operating system is used in public switches and PBXs, as well as within access networks, cross-connect switches, voice-mail systems, cellular base stations, web-phones, and cellular telephones.

The Sun Embedded Workshop software provides a development environment with the necessary tools to build and deploy the ChorusOS operating system on a telecommunications platform. The ChorusOS operating system is the embedded foundation for Sun’s Service-Driven Network. Offering high service availability, complete hardware and software integration, management capabilities and JavaTM technology support dedicated to telecom needs, the ChorusOS operating system allows the dynamic and cost-efficient deployment of new features and applications while maintaining the reliability and functionality of existing networks.

The ChorusOS operating system supports third-party protocol stacks, legacy applications, and applications based on real-time and Java technology, on a single hardware platform.

The ChorusOS operating system can be tuned very finely to meet the requirements of a given application or environment. The core executive component is always present in an instance of the ChorusOS operating system. Optional features are implemented as components that can be added to, or removed from, an instance of the ChorusOS operating system.

Each API function in the ChorusOS operating system is contained in one or more of the configurable components. As long as at least one of these components is configured into a given instance of the operating system, the function is available. Some library functions are independent of any specific component and are always available.

ChorusOS 5.0 runs over Solaris operating environments, and supports the following targets:
– UltraSPARC II (CP1500 and CP20x0)
– Intel x86, Pentium
– Motorola PowerPC 750 and 74×0 processor family (mpc7xx)
– Motorola PowerQUICC I (mpc8xx) and PowerQUICC II (mpc8260) microcontrollers
