Examples of "minix"
Early Linux kernel development was done on a MINIX host system, which led to Linux inheriting various features from MINIX, such as the MINIX file system.
The MINIX file system is the native file system of the MINIX operating system.
MINIX 3.4.0RC, Release Candidates became available in January 2016. however a stable release of MINIX 3.4.0 was not yet announced.
Minix-vmd only ran on IA-32 and compatible microprocessor architectures. It was written by many of the same authors who develop Minix, at the Vrije Universiteit (VU) in Amsterdam. The acronym reputedly stands for "VU Minix Distribution".
MINIX 3 is a project to create a small, highly reliable, and functional Unix-like operating system. It is published under a BSD license and is a successor project to the earlier MINIX 1 and MINIX 2 operating systems.
Nevertheless, the OS may have been of interest to others for various purposes, due to its small resource usage compared with other operating systems and other factors. However, Minix 3 added Minix-vmd's functions into Minix itself.
In his unpublished book "Samizdat", Kenneth Brown claims that Torvalds illegally copied code from MINIX. In May 2004, these claims were refuted by Tanenbaum, the author of MINIX:
One of the main goals of MINIX 3 is reliability. Below, some of the more important principles that enhance MINIX 3's reliability are discussed.
MINIX 3 still has an active development community with over 50 people attending MINIXCon 2016, a conference to discuss the history and future of Minix.
MINIX was written from scratch by Andrew S. Tanenbaum in the 1980s, as a Unix-like operating system whose source code could be used freely in education. The MINIX file system was designed for use with MINIX; it copies the basic structure of the Unix File System but avoids any complex features in the interest of keeping the source code clean, clear and simple, to meet the overall goal of MINIX to be a useful teaching aid.
Design and development of MINIX distributed operating system
MINIX 1.0, released in 1987, was 12,000 lines of C and some x86 assembly language. Source code of the kernel, memory manager, and file system of MINIX 1.0 are printed in the book. Tanenbaum originally developed MINIX for compatibility with the IBM PC and IBM PC/AT microcomputers available at the time.
MINIX 3.3.0, released in September 2014, brought ARM support.
Early versions of MINIX were created by Andrew S. Tanenbaum for educational purposes. Starting with MINIX 3, the primary aim of development shifted from education to the creation of a highly reliable and self-healing microkernel OS. MINIX is now developed as open-source software.
An abridged 12,000 lines of the C source code of the kernel, memory manager, and file system of MINIX 1.0 are printed in the book. Prentice-Hall also released MINIX source code and binaries on floppy disk with a reference manual. MINIX 1 was system-call compatible with Seventh Edition Unix.
Minix-vmd is a variant of MINIX 2 for Intel IA-32-compatible processors, created by two Vrije Universiteit researchers, which adds virtual memory and support for the X Window System.
Andrew Tanenbaum quickly asked the community to decide one of these two editors to be the vi clone in Minix; Elvis was chosen, and remains the vi clone for Minix today.
MINIX 2.0, released in 1997, was only available for the x86 and Solaris-hosted SPARC architectures. Minix-vmd was created by two Vrije Universiteit researchers, and added virtual memory and support for the X Window System.
Minix-vmd is a free and open source operating system which was created from Minix, and added some additional features such as virtual memory and X Window System support.
MINIX (from "mini-Unix") is a Unix-like computer operating system based on a microkernel architecture. Early versions of MINIX were created by Andrew S. Tanenbaum for educational purposes. Starting with MINIX 3, the primary aim of development shifted from education to the creation of a highly reliable and self-healing microkernel OS. MINIX is now developed as open-source software. MINIX was first released in 1987, with its complete source code made available to universities for study in courses and research. It has been free and open source software since it was re-licensed under the BSD license in April 2000. Tanenbaum created MINIX at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam to exemplify the principles conveyed in his textbook, "" (1987), that Linus Torvalds described as "the book that launched me to new heights".
