[News] AROS People Hope to Outlinux GNU/Linux with Linux

Hash: SHA1

Former AROS Developers Start New OS Project, Much Secrecy

,----[ Quote ]
| This is not the first time someone believes that taking the Linux kernel as a 
| base is a good idea for re-implementing a dead (or near-dead) operating 
| system. Sadly, all those that came before Anubis failed quite miserably. 
| There was BlueEyedOS, an effort to implement BeOS APIs on top of Linux. 
| Failed. Cosmoe, same story. Dead. Zebuntu. Gone. I'm sure there are many 
| others that I'm leaving out. Even though in theory it appears as if using the 
| Linux kernel is a nice leg-up, practice is much different.       


Solaris developers too have learned that it's better to merge and to join than
to replicate.


Sun's 'Project Copy Linux' not a Linux copy

| Murdock also refused to talk about Sun's FISHworks project – billed as a 
| NetApp killer. 
| Sun has put some of its top Solaris engineers in charge of a 
| software/hardware effort meant to create a solid network attached storage 
| (NAS) appliance. The company demoed this project to analysts early this year, 
| although it refuses to give reporters the same honor.   
| We did track down Adam Levanthal, one of the FISHworks leads and co-authors 
| of DTrace, at OSCON. He revealed that the product should ship early next year 
| and that it includes some special sauce above Solaris for handling storage.  
| "I'm not going to talk to you about it more than that," he said, rather 
| bluntly. 
| Why not just slap us in the face? 

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
