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.
