The L3 µ-kernel and operating system

L3 is a microkernel running on i386, i486 and Pentium processors which has been developed by Jochen Liedtke and others at GMD's SET institute.

As its successor L4, L3 is very lean and features fast, message-based, synchronous IPC, simple-to-use external paging mechanisms and a security mechanism based on secure domains (tasks, clans and chiefs).

Additionally, L3 implements system-wide persistency. ACI distributes a complete L3 operating system running on the L3 µ-kernel, featuring DOS emulation and an ELAN runtime system.
