SVNet Meeting, Wednesday Aug 17, 1994 7:30pm Mountain View


                            386BSD Release 1.0:
           New Innovations in Kernel Design and Architecture

                               William F. Jolitz
                                    TeleMuse


WHAT:  386BSD, R1.0 - Kernel Design and Features


   "Has 386BSD made any progress towards these new design goals  
   --  by  attempting  to create New Innovations in Kernel Design 
   and Architecture and meet these challenges head on -- or has it 
   fallen  into the fatal  stagnation  of so many other Unix projects 
   which held out great promise but then grew stale and bloated over  time
   for a lack of new ideas?"  That is the question posed by Bill Jolitz
   which he will answer in this presentation at SVNet.  

        In this brief talk, some of the new kernel design  work
   contained in 386BSD Release 1.0 will be discussed along with
   some additional new items of special  interest  (e.g.  secu-
   rity).  In  particular,  our speaker will  focus on answering these
   design challenges posed two years ago, to wit:

   *    How do we better adapt a Unix-like system to the PC  to
        encourage usability and plug-and-play?

   *    How do we  avoid  file  I/O  and  network  transmission
        bottlenecks  to  allow real multimedia and gigabit net-
        working?

   *    How do we achieve multiprocessing in the 1990's?

   *    How do we  allow  people  to  do  independent  work  on
        filesystems  and  other  subsystems  independent of the
        basic kernel?

   He will then outline in brief the next series of design
   goals and work-in-progress to be included in future versions
   of 386BSD.

   This talk is intended for people interested in new kernel 
   and operating systems design. 
 
     *** 386BSD Reference CD Demonstration System ***
 
   For those interested in viewing what is contained on
   the Dr. Dobbs Journal 386BSD Reference CD, a demonstration
   system will be made available.  This system contains the com-
   plete operational 386BSD Release 1.0 system as well as the
   complete and hyperlinked select kernel source annotations,
   book excerpts from the pending book on 386BSD Release 1.0
   entitled 386BSD From the Inside-Out, the complete Porting
   UNIX to the 386 386BSD article series which appeared in Dr.
   Dobbs Journal, and a number of other new 386BSD Release 1.0
   writings which have never before appeared in print.
 
WHO:  Bill Jolitz, Telemuse
 
   Bill Jolitz began the 386BSD Project in 1989 as a way
   of encouraging innovation in operating systems design on an
   inexpensive PC platform. He has worked on operating system
   design for BSD and commercial Unix systems since the 1970's
   (including 2.8 BSD, where he was the Principle Designer).
   Bill is also a popular published author who has written
   extensively on new kernel and system design, networking,
   security, and other areas. He currently works as an indus-
   try consultant on a wide range of projects, most recently
   projects in clustering, security, telecommunications, and
   gigabit networking.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO vs IBM.
