DeLiRiuM 0.6

A 32-bit nano-kernel hybrid operating system.
The DeLiRiuM project (delirium-kernel) is a 32-bit nano-kernel hybrid operating system

One of it's aims is developing and testing unconventional interfaces between OS and userspace rather than providing yet another ubiquitous POSIX.1-like API. The goal is to do this in a not only in a programmer friendly way, but also without sacrificing modern OS features or performance.

Development currently targets IA-32 (x86), the Xen hypervisor and UNIX userspace.

The DeLiRiuM kernel is primarily written in ANSI C and x86 assembler (gas).
