Sculpt for Early Adopters Mar 29, 2018

Discover the first public release of the Sculpt general-purpose operating system based on the Genode OS Framework.

Sculpt is the name of a new Genode-based operating system targeted at general-purpose computing. After having been in daily use by the entire team at Genode Labs since last autumn, we feel that the time is right to share it with a broader community of Genode enthusiasts.

Initially, the system presents itself as a fairly minimalistic base system, which then can be interactively sculpted into different shapes and forms. In contrast to traditional Genode systems, which are largely defined at system-integration time, Sculpt's structure is completely dynamic and extensible at runtime. The accompanying documentation https://genode.org/documentation/articles/sculpt-ea guides the user through this adventure.

On the way, many Genode features come into play, such as the live configuration of components, wireless networking, the GUI stack, package management, and virtualization.

Whereas the current version is targeted at early adopters, our roadmap envisions that each subsequent release will make the system more and more attractive to a broader user base.
