    Fairly astonishing to me that it already has a GUI, but then I know nothing of how windowing systems are written...

    The whole thing apparently runs in ring 0, per the ycombinator thread. That's not actually necessarily a bad thing, managed code OSes do that too. But redox does not seem to be remotely safe or secure at this point.

    It's certainly a fascinating idea though.

    Yes, interesting, indeed. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to start the iso file in Virtualbox. Will try later again.

    I don't know which came first, but their logo is awfully similar to that of KDE Neon.
