...The interface revolves around the file manager, or filer, following the traditional Unix view that ` "everything is a file' rather than trying to hide the filesystem beneath start menus, wizards, or druids. The aim is to make a system that is well designed and clearly presented. The ROX style favours using several small programs together instead of creating all-in-one mega-applications."
"Unikernels built on high-level languages, such as the Mirage OS and our own open source HaLVM, offer tremendous benefits for building security-critical components. By using Mirage OS for our MAC-enhanced XenStore, we were able to quickly and easily add next-generation security features, while maintaining confidence that our additions met critical quality and safety metrics" said Adam Wick, Technical Director, Systems Software at Galois, a U S company developing critical systems that solve critical software security, safety...
