ReDox A Unix Like Operating System Design To Be Secure

Redox is an operating system written in pure Rust, designed to be modular and secure. 

Redox is a Unix-like Operating System written in Rust. It's aiming to bring the innovations of Rust to a modern microkernel and full set of applications.

What is Rust Language:
Rust is a systems programming language that runs blazingly fast, prevents segfaults, and guarantees thread safety.

Rust Features:

  • zero-cost abstractions
  • move semantics
  • guaranteed memory safety
  • threads without data races
  • trait-based generics
  • pattern matching
  • type inference
  • minimal runtime
  • efficient C bindings

Redox Features:

  • Microkernel Design
  • Most features are implemented in Rust
  • Includes optional GUI - Orbital
  • Newlib provided for C programs
  • MIT Licensed
  • Drivers run in Userspace
  • Includes common Unix commands
  • ZFS Filesystem Support (WIP)
