OPERATING SYSTEMS --
The Genode open-source operating system framework written from scratch with a micro-kernel design has been working on Sculpt OS as a general purpose operating system. This week the project reached its latest milestone.

The third version of Sculpt OS is now available, "Sculpt with Visual Composition", which as part of this latest goal is working on transitioning more of their offerings from text-based user-interfaces to a GUI for administrative tasks. The text-based user interfaces will be maintained for those interested.

Sculpt OS can run from a USB stick on some bare metal systems but otherwise is also available as a virtual appliance with Oracle VM VirtualBox.
