The Genode project proudly presents a bootable live CD representing the 
current state of the Genode OS Framework. Features like running Linux as 
browser plugin, 3D hardware acceleration, sound support, and a complete 
networking infrastructure are incorporated to form a single coherent setup.

The live CD boots in less than 10 seconds (on VirtualBox) into a a fully 
functional GUI with a selection of five demo subsystems. Each subsystem 
highlights a different aspect of the framework. A paravirtualized Linux, 
seamlessly integrated into Genode's native Nitpicker GUI, can be found right 
next to native Qt4/Webkit applications. The port of the Arora web browser 
stands out for featuring a plugin that can execute arbitrary Genode 
subsystems in a secure way. This tech demo features multiple browser-embedded 
application including a complete Linux system, streaming a disk image live 
over HTTP from a web server. Another subsystem runs the famous gears OpenGL 
demo via the native port of Gallium3D/Mesa, offering hardware support on 
Intel GMA GPUs.

Furthermore the CD executes a range of new drivers and features not present in
the last releases. As kernel OKL4 v2 was chosen.
