Re: Provably correct OS?

Dyke and all,
   I glanced at it and it does look like our stuff...
"(persistent) object and access rights" looks like
"process and channels" ... device drivers are
implemented as processes (threads) ... the
periodic snapshots look like a high priority
(Transputer) process looking at low priority ones,
though it's not clear how they can deal with 
ongoing interrrupts during the shot snapping...
kernel shares scheduler with user sounds like
user can do REAL PROGRAMMING in Ring 0 which
is a giant gap in current OS's.
   Write an occam compiler for it, someone...?
