The Glaux operating system is free software, written mostly in C by Alexandros Alexandrou (Αλέξανδρος Αλεξάνδρου). It aims to be compliant with good parts of the POSIX standard, while providing security, reliability, speed and minimised memory consuption. It should also not depend on third party programs for building, as the relevant utilities are also being written from scratch, in order to have better control over their quality.
