Re: [ba-ohs-talk] Askemos -- Grove-like operating system
And look at the related projects page too
Very simillar in design goals. Active in 11-2001
Probably the second most simillar projects on the way. Needs investigation.
XNS: http://www.xns.org and http://openprivacy.org/
At lot of design work to draw from. Aparently less code?
similar goals in the long run. Much larger scope.
Looks somehow simillar. Lot's of pointers. I need some time to look into
(which I'm not gonna have soon) and I would not want to write that much code
just for a counter. ;-)
Simillar system design see AskemosHLD. No public release and seems to be
dead by 11-2001
similar analytical goals; has been tried in a prototype and proved a
structural match (not hierarchical). Development state too much alpha,
moving target, too slow.
a java servlet / scheme server bearing minor similarities
same script programming language, simillar processing model
an application server, which almost became the code base but it has
structural issues which made that infeasible.
similar model, about the same speed.
Both the black box view and the way it works intrnally are similar (judged
from the description on the web pages), except that's a proxy only (we can
do that too, our server contains a http client).
similar for web programming (judged from first web page) except that it
defines a proprietary language, which might be useful. (02)
