RevLin OS: Would You Use It?

,----[ Quote ]
| We've just got an email which points out that 
| there is going work for a new operating 
| system called RevLin OS. This is more of an 
| announcement, because there are no downloads 
| available for now, so I couldn't test it. But 
| I really liked the concept - I must say that 
| it sounds much better than Chrome OS, so I 
| decided to share this news with you. Why 
| better than Chrome OS? Read on!


A Round of Thoughts

,----[ Quote ]
| RevLin OS sounds promising. It may be the bit 
| of "new" that the *nix world needs, and it 
| may wake all the freetards up. Essentially, 
| it's a reworking of the Linux kernel that 
| keeps the driver framework, and has the same 
| system calls. This makes it binary compatible 
| with Linux, while not suffering from the size 
| and complexity issues of Linux (or so we hope 
| since it hasn't been released yet). 
| Currently, it is unclear whether or not this 
| monster will use X11 or some other display 
| framework, but we know that the GUI can be 
| scripted with JS, HTML, and CSS. This would 
| no doubt start a flurry of distro building by 
| the FOSS community, and within a year or so 
| someone would have RevLin running his 
| toaster.



Interview: Chrome OS Zeroâs Hexxeh

,----[ Quote ]
| From Chrome OS Diet to Cherry and now the
| latest, Zero, Hexxeh has been the primary
| source for Chrome OS build releases ever
| since Google released the Chromium code to
| the masses in November. Theyâve been
| popular mostly because they work with a
| lot of existing hardware, plus the builds
| are small enough to fit on any USB drive.
| We got a chance to ask some questions of
| Hexxeh, who just released Chrome OS Zero a
| few days ago and talks about how he got
| started, future job prospects and some
| technical features in his latest version.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
