Subject: [plt-scheme] Interested in a Scheme-based Operating System?
For list-related administrative tasks:
Would anyone be interested in creating a free operating system based
exclusively on programs written in scheme (low level stuff still in
C/assembler of course), and that combines the best features of Plan 9,
BeOS, Linux, and mac/windows? Would you like to have a potentially
widley-used OS that showcases the power of functional languages? Would
you like an OS where scheme is the preferred programming language?
Check out OSKit http://www.cs.utah.edu/flux/oskit/
OSKit let's you use both Linux and BSD style device drivers and
can utilize several file systems as "plug-ins". I believe someone has
already port some version of scheme to this platform, but it might have
been some time ago. Anyway I'd be interested in seeing this come about
with or without OSKit.
