Minix





thnn
I recently sat a Operating Systems paper that focused largely on Minix. I am wondering if anyone has used Minix as their day to day operating system? I know it is a mainly research and teaching based operating system, but it would still be interesting to know if anyone has had any success running it (especially Minix 3).

Run it in a virtual machine if you want to mess with it. From my understanding it doesn't support any full-featured window managers like kde or gnome, so using it as a day to day *desktop* OS is not really a possibility.
