The Flux OSKit: A Substrate for Kernel and Language Research

Bryan Ford, Godmar Back, Greg Benson, Jay Lepreau, Albert Lin, and Olin Shivers

One-line summary: The Flux OSKit provides clean, well separated and document library-like components that provide core functionality of operating systems; the separation allows OS developers to easily incorporate or override the functionality of individual components as desired, yielding rapid OS development time at the price of performance.

Overview/Main Points


Bottom line: OSKit seems to provide what the developers intended - very rapid and painless OS development time, but with plenty of opportunity for specialization. Steve says "two thumbs up with a circle".
