OPERATING SYSTEMS --
We've already seen Redox OS as an operating system and micro-kernel written in the Rust programming language. With just about every newer programming language we've seen ambitious developers take to the lengthy and complicated process of writing a kernel and the start of an OS in their new favorite language. With PowerNex, the D programming language is being used to write an OS kernel.

PowerNex is written in the D programming language and eventually the hope is to write an entire operating system in the D programming language.

PowerNex is currently capable of running on a 64-bit CPU with at least 32MB of RAM and supports the QEMU/VirtualBox virtual machines. The kernel is licensed under the Mozilla Public License 2.0.
