"Karim Yaghmour, author of the Linux Trace Toolkit, recently launched a new open source project to develop an "Adaptive Domain Environment for Operating Systems" (Adeos). The purpose of Adeos is to provide a flexible environment for sharing hardware resources among multiple operating systems, or among multiple instances of a single OS. According to Yaghmour, Adeos will support the kinds of dual-OS Linux environments that are today achieved using RTLinux or RTAI, but without making use of the technology that is the subject of Victor Yodaiken's RTLinux patent."

"Details on implementing Adeos with an x86 processor and Linux as the host OS are presented in a whitepaper entitled the Adeos Design Document, which is available as a postscript or pdf download from the Adeos website. A second whitepaper discusses building a real-time operating system (RTOS) on top of Adeos."

"LinuxDevices.com's Rick Lehrbaum contacted Yaghmour for further clarification about Adeos and the motivations behind it. Here's what he learned."
